Freebie Valentine Cross Stitch Pattern
I found this cute freebie Valentine cross stitch pattern here, I decided to finish it as a pin keep.
I stitched it on 25 Count Dublin Lugana Linen using DMC threads following the colours given in the pattern and I gathered delicate ribbon for around the edge and topped it off with a Swarovski Crystal attached to a pin.

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
