Beth tells us "Old time sailors left their loved ones with special tokens to remember them while they sailed the high seas. These shell encrusted valentines come to us as testaments of their love for their special someone. This Fragment is a tribute to those sentiments.."
This is the 8th chart in the 2021 Fragments in Time Series. The 8 individual Fragments were inspired by antique sailor art, valentines and scrimshaw. Please visit the Fragments in Time Series product in the Related Items section below for more information on stitching the complete series.

The model was stitched on 32ct. Parchment hand dyed linen from Fabrics by Stephanie and stitched with hand dyed cotton floss from Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colorworks. A wide eighth will be enough fabric to stitch 2 to 3 of these designs when they are finished as shown.
