Valentine's Day Embroidery - Part One

I have a new work in progress to share.  I am embroidering a table runner for Valentine's Day.

This motif is actually from my Wedding embroidery pattern but I think it is perfect for Valentine's Day

After transferring the motif to my fabric with a water soluble marking pen, I stitched the three hearts.  I used Straight Stitch to fill the hearts and Stem Stitch to outline them.

Then I added these small seed beads for some sparkle.

Next step is embroidering the swirly lines ~not sure which stitch I will use~  and then adding either sequins or more beads...I haven't decided which yet!

Every thing is better with beads! Love your hearts. They are a nice reminder that I need to think about hearts.
