Secret Valentine

Our guild has a Secret Valentine exchange every year.  The fun part is secretly delivering the goods and also hearing all the hillarious stories when we  reveal our Valentines at the guild meeting. I used batiks for the background and wool for the applique.  I love the ease and forgiveness of the wool along with the rich colors.

I cross hatched the background first, then machine appliqued the rest. I embellished with beads and embroidery.

The little bird is carrying a beaded heart for his Valentine.
