Stitched Valentines

These are the Valentines Day cards I made for a Marie Antionette Mail Art swap.  I have been having a wonderful time mixing paper and various laces, burlap and other fabrics and stitching them all together with my sewing machine. My machine is about 25 years old and is causing me some frustration but I am continuing on none-the-less. I now really understand why they call the top and bottoms thread equalization tension because it is definitely causing me some tension!

Linking to Pink Saturday.
