Happy xox Day

(I originally made this wreath without the embroidery or antique tatting, but when my three year old son saw the wreath on the door, his first comment was, ‘Aw, IT ISN’T FANCY!!’ So I thought that I had better have another go at it!

*If you aren’t familiar with tatting, the video below (not mine) will give you a quick appreciation for the AMOUNT of work which went into the antique lace which I stitched around the felted heart at the centre of my wreath. (My mother found and purchased the lace for me from an antique shop near the Belle Isle, NB last summer. Thanks Mum!)
