an unconventional love letter

This was my Valentine's Day gift to Matt.  I had intentions of embroidering a line from Corelli's Mandolin that my sister-in-law read at our wedding ("Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches they find that they are one tree and not two.") but I got through the first word and promptly ripped it out.  Way too time consuming for a gift that needed to be completed in less than seven hours.  Instead I went with the simplest of sentiments and a hot pink heart.  I almost wanted to leave it blank because I loved my fabric paper so much.  
If you love it, too, I have good news - I opened an etsy store, the tiny hummingbird shop,  where you can buy your very own stitched love letter.  I'm thinking of offering variations as well, like initials (TC + MC = [heart], perhaps?) and names - "Ezra Raphael Celeste" with "11-01-10" underneath, for example.  Much more to come!  Look for quilts, all manner of banners and bunting, and, of course, stitched love letters.
