Happy Valentines Day



I had to share this picture of my valentine primitive stitching. This design is by Sampler Girl, Tanya Anderson. I made it into a little pillow and filled it with vanilla mulch. So I took a picture of it with the mulch for my blog. Oh I wish there was a way I could make you all smell how delicious this smells. I love how it came out. Tanya had charted a little key on it but I replaced it with a real key.
Isn't Valentine's Day wonderful. I love it, even though my HUSBAND forgot to remember me for Valentine's Day. I still love this holiday. When I told him it was Valentine's day, he said we don't need anything, we are too old for this. Can you imagine? I wanted to clunk him in the head especially since he is always telling me how we are still so young and never too old to have fun. Then he made a very special comment, "everyday is Valentines day for you around here". I guess that can be taken both a bad and a good way. LOL
Oh well, thats okay, Happy Valentine's Day to you dear husband, you are still my favorite valentine and I am still yours, I guess I don't need a card, or flowers, or candy to know that.
Anything special planned for Valentines Day? I am going to babysit for my little grandson. My daughter and her hubby have a wedding to go to today so I am going to watch their little baby so they can have some fun together. Anthony and I will have lots of fun together too I am sure. He is getting so big and laughing out loud now.

Little Sweet Pea, grandma sure loves you. I took this picture of him last week, all I did was turn around and he would chuckle away. LOL
Oh here is another finish, my first Ornament for 2009. isn't it cute. I tried to finish it a couple different ways but this way with the trim came out the best. This is by Homespun Elegance.




Have a Happy Valentine's Day everybody!!

Beautiful stitching, Sharon!! I love the ornament and your Valentine piece. Both are wonderful! Nothing compares to your little sweet pea, though. Anthony is just toooo adorable! Enjoy your day today with him. LOL at Ray's comment. Yet again another thing he & Kieran have in common! LOL We'll treat ourselves to something this summer in honor of the, uh, oversight on the part of our husbands! ;)
