Happy Valentine's Day!


Looking  back to my childhood,  I recall the anticipation of Valentine's Day..... a time when we all exchanged mostly handmade Valentines, made from lace paper doilies and red cut out paper hearts.

 I remember schoolday Valentine parties,  complete with candy hearts and some special pink, red and white cupcakes or cookies, and exchanging Valentines with my classmates.  All of it was special...the intrigue of receiving one or two unsigned Valentines!

Well, I didn't finish "Deepest Love" in time for Valentine's Day, but, but it  is coming along nicely.

I'm trying to decide whether to finish it as a banner with some nice colored borders, or whether to have it framed.  Framing is so expensive, and I am not an expert finisher when it comes to doing my own framing.   Hmmm....

This lovely scissors set and keeper were made by one of my stitching friends, Shirley, from a Wednesday morning stitching group that I attend at my LNS.  It is stitched over one!  I especially love the little twisted cording and beautiful little mother of pearl buttons attached to the scissors.  So special!
 Our 10 month old granddaughter, Ella is wearing her pretty little velour "hearts" top to celebrate Valentine's Day.  We are babysitting for her tonight so that our daughter and her husband can go out to celebrate Valentine's Day.  It is always such a joy to have Ella come to visit Grandma and Grandpa!

Wishing you a Valentine Basket full of hearts of love, that your heart may filled to overflowing with the greatest gift of all....LOVE!
