I heart you anatomical heart cross stitch, completed in small frame or hoop -- *see The Links below for necklace version--

---The Story---

If you'd love to tell your loved one you love him or her, but you can't stand the over-sentimentality of writing out a heartfelt letter (and a heartfelt email seems too impersonal);

if standing in a driveway with a boombox over your head feels too cliched, but sharing ipod earbuds just isn't enough;

if you're romantic, but not ROMANTIC romantic, here's your solution: a small framed cross stitch telling your s.o. how you feel, but not in a way that won't gross anyone out -- not with sentimentality, anyway. Give them the sweetness of an "i heart you" message...but cut the treacle with an anatomical heart. It's a wonderful balance of love and snark.

---The Deets---

This is one small "i [anatomical heart] you" completed cross stitch, framed in a 3" embroidery hoop or 3" square frame. The heart is stitched in bright red, with blue, dark red and purple aorta/vena cava, and two small blood vessels wrapping around the heart muscle. The text is stitched in black in lowercase script.

*CUSTOMIZE: If you would like this stitch to include a short name or initials instead of "you," please mention it in the purchase order or convo me ("contact the seller" at the bottom of this listing). This will probably increase the amount of time before shipping slightly. Please limit the name to about 6 letters, or convo me before purchasing to ask if I can fit the name of your choice.

I also do all kinds of special orders! Convo me if there's any stitch work you want done, and you think I might be the right stitcher for the job.

*FRAME: I'm completely out of ornate style round tabletop frames, but you may choose a natural wood hoop or a square or secondhand frame (of which I do have round or oval). The hoop options hang on the wall, while the square frames are tabletop. (Secondhand frames vary but are generally designed for tabletop at this size.)

The photos show this stitch in white, red and light blue frames as well as a natural wood embroidery hoop -- for comparison purposes, the dark blue frame is also shown with the "heart+mind" stitch, also available in my shop.

*GIFT WRAP: This will ship gift-wrapped if you desire, with a notecard for you to write your "to" and "from" on.

If you would like the stitch to be mailed directly to its intended recipient, let me know via convo or in the shipping order, and I will write the names into the note before sending the package to the address that you specify. Be sure to put the correct address in the "send to" field when you check out!

*SHIP: It will be shipped promptly (within a week) via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation, or international first class mail unless a delay is noted in my shop policies, shop banner or announcements (under the banner), or I contact you via convo.

It will be sent with a bit of clean recycled cushioning paper and taped securely in a yellow envelope. Please be sure the address you'd like it sent to is correctly entered at checkout!
