Happy Valentine's Day


I wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. I have had some flowers and candy and some shared lovelies. This little sweetie I made as part of my Quilt Guild Heart Challenge and for my monthly hanger project. Yes, she is 3-D and kickin' up her heels - oh, maybe I should have put shoes on her?


And I can show the whole thing now - the Valentine I made for the Initial Heart Swap. One of my fabric framed cross stitch pieces. OF course I am still loving the one I received.


And I had this lovely piece arrive - Vickie at A Creative Notion had a give away and we could pick the color - oh, you know it HAD to be blue!! Isn't this just special??


This box arrived too - I was runner up in the "Let Me See Your Jelly Roll' challenge at Crooked Seams. I already know what I am doing with this for a new spring quilt for a birthday gift for a family member.


And be still my heart - this huge box of lovelies were the Grand Prize for the Scrap Along Challenge at Pleasant Home. I shared some of the things in the box with family and friends so pieces are missing. This box was stuffed! Yes, there were baggies of scraps from projects shared during the month - I am always tickled with a bag like this - ideas spinning!! Oh, the bag is just so sweet, did not expect this in the box. And the new book 'Cut The Scraps' has been well thumbed already.


Since I have been so blessed with gifts and wins - and I didn't use these lovely charms - I have 2 charm packs of Deb Strain's 'Always & Forever' along with 2 mailers left. So I can pick TWO winners - will hold comments until Friday midnight and announce the winners Sat. Feb 18th. I will ship over-seas.

CLOSING THOUGHT

On Valentine's Day we think of those who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who we think of with a smile.
I am fortunate to know you, that's why I want to say,
to a rare and special person: Happy Valentine's Day!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
