First, my valentine exchange ...
OOPS! I can't show you that! But I can show you the one I received from Joyce. She made me such a pretty hand towel and sent a handmade card and some silk floss as a sweet extra since my allergies made the other "extra" options not such good choices. : )
After I finished Mitten Friends, I pulled out a sweet Margaret Sherry ornament that Mouse had sent me two years ago. I made a promise to myself that I would never again do a MS piece on aida. That backstitching is a killer!
BTW, please excuse my pictures today. I couldn't get good lighting no matter how hard I tried!
Next I started LHN Sheep Virtues "Patience"...
Just pretend it isn't shaky... It's really pretty! : )
Then I pulled out a sweet LHN ornament - Good Tidings that I had won when Vicki was doing a blog giveaway last year. Thanks Vicki!!
Last night I pulled out another UFO - WIP that I started a few years ago during the January Crazy Challenge - Dimensions "Heart and Soul". Maybe I can finish this by the end of February, or maybe even by the end of the Super Bowl... who knows!! :)
Now a note to some dear sweet stitching angel who sent me this pattern off my wish list and didn't give her name....
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
It was my favorite of the patterns I listed and I am SO excited to stitch this! I'm going to put it in my "to do soon" basket and use some of my budgeted $$ to kit it up sometime this year when I have the urge to spend.
That was SO sweet of you to do for me. You really, really were an encouragement to me today, and I thank God for you!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I always read and enjoy your comments, even when I don't respond. I appreciate each and every one of you!
