A little Quaker heart

The other day while looking for something (and, incidentally, this is how I spend a good portion of each day: looking for something), I ran across a couple of patterns for Valentine's Day projects that I had pulled out while looking for something else a month or so before. [see how that works?]
Luckily they had not worked their way down too far in The Pile only to be rediscovered after 2/14! So I started to work on one and stitched a little Quaker heart. I stitched it over one thread so it would be fairly small. That's a dime there beside it. I think I'll probably make it into either a scissor fob or a little pinkeep and give it away as a Valentine.
But that's finishing work. Ugh. Finishing. Why is finishing never as much fun as doing?

I notice the little robin embroidery in the picture. Did you do that? Very pretty to look at on this gray day! Is it a pin cushion?

You are amazing! I can't believe the lamby smocking was for the Mini! I am so in love (and the only reason I am leaving you a comment and not emailing you is that I've got your email address in my mailer's autofill and not in the address book so I am not 100% positive that the address I have is really you but I am sure that your blog is really you - I don't know who else it could be in my autofill but you can't be too careful). Please oh please write me (emily at yarnmiracle dot com) so I can thank you more properly. :D
