This is how I finished my two Loves from The Stitcherhood. I wanted some red/black ribbon with hearts on it but could only find red with white hearts. I tried using various pens to colour the white and it just didn't look right. But I did find these heart buttons in my LNS which look good. The design is posing with a statue which represents our family (I think it's called Circle of Love). I bought one of a couple with one child when hubby and I moved in together to represent me, him and the large boy, then I bought one of a man holding a woman in a wedding dress when we got married (although we'd already done the whole carrying me over the threshold thing). This one I bought when the small boy arrived on the scene and we became 4.
The carved love spoon was a wedding gift hand-made by a close friend. She is a very talented craftswoman, as well as carving wood she makes stained glass pieces and has tried her hand at cross stitch too.
