Valentine’s Day

Did My Heart Love Till Now?

Romeo & Juliet: Act I, Scene V

Squeaking in just in time for Valentine’s stitching, and as a little nod to our next series of patterns (we still have some Brothers Grimm patterns to share, including a different freebie, but there is another set we’ve just started working on and are pretty excited about!), here’s a little romantic freebie for you all to stitch up for the big day. Note: this pattern will be added to the shop shortly! If you’re interested, please pop over to check it out!

Romeo & Juliet: Act I, Scene V

This line is spoken by dear Romeo about his lovely Juliet, after seeing her for the first time. “Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” Sigh, isn’t he the just the dreamiest?

We kept this one fairly simple, just a relatively quick little project, easy enough to do in time for Valentine’s Day. We went a little crazy and packed ours chock-full of satin stitch, but those flowers would look great in some quick backstitch too, don’tcha think?

The pattern is designed to be about 8.5″ wide and 6.5″ tall, printed over one A4 page. The PDF is two pages – one of the pattern as you see it , the other of its reverse, so it will be easy for you to transfer by whatever method you prefer. Have fun – and, as always, if you stitch one up yourself, we’d love to see how it comes out!
