Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm sending wishes that you are doing something you love today, be it spending time with loved ones, stitching something you love, or just thinking pleasant thoughts.

My hubby made me the most wonderful breakfast much better than a box of chocolates! We watched a movie together and now I'm fondling my...stash. You do know that I'm talking about my stitchy stash, right?

Didn't finish a thing Valentine's related this year. So I'm ejoying a couple of my Valentine's Day finishes and an exchange gift from a few years ago. The heart shaped needlebook and scissor fob are from Cherished Stitches, "Flowers from the Heart". The biscornu was a birthday exchange gift. I believe it is an Indigo Rose freebie. The picture colors are off, in person they are lighter and brighter.

I decided to kit up two, no, make that three projects; two that I've been wanting to stitch for what seems like eons, and one of my recent acquistions. Here's the line-up: "Pink Hare Sampler" from Ewe & Eye & Friends, "Hoppin' Along Sampler" from With Thy Needle & Thread (both Eastery) and "Leaping Cat" a La-D-Da sampler.

I'm pulling threads and fabric and plan to be stitching shortly and on into the evening. I'll post progress pictures very soon.

Thanks for stopping by. {{{{{{Valentine's Hugs & Kisses}}}}}} Pass it foward!
