My final Valentine's craft was for my Valentine, geek that he is. So I went the geek route, hoping that he could and would hang it in his classroom. That remains to be seen, but I'll let you know where it ends up.
I thought I was quite clever, but I had to explain the pun to Bella about 10 times. She may or may not have understood by that tenth explanation, but I was still pleased.
I don't know why, but I really love macro shots of embroidery. Like, a lot. Also, I really love embroidery. Like, a lot.
I painted the hoop black to try and up the masculinity factor, with is otherwise a bit lacking in the embroidery hoop, in my opinion.
I always glue the fabric onto the back of the hoop to finish it. I often glue a grosgrain ribbon on top of that, but that didn't seem to up the manliness so I left it off of his.
Happy Valentine's Day, Geek.
