There are just a few days left until Valentine’s day. While many of you will have stitched up and created your Valentine’s day cards and gifts, we wanted to give you a little something that can be given all year round.
No matter the day, spread the love with this Love Cross Stitch chart from Cross Stitch Cards by Joan Elliot.
