I recently started dating someone and our one month anniversary was Valentine's Day. I didn't want to scare him off with something too sentimental, but he loved it.
It's my first embroidery project, but I used to cross stitch which helped a lot. It's mostly straight stitch (?) and satin stitch on the eyes. I transferred it one day and the next day did all the stitching, cut the mat and framed it. The stitches aren't the evenest, but that's okay.
