Valentine's Day
I want to thank Nan for the "You make my day award".
I'm glad I do something for someone!
Thanks Nan! That was sweet of you.
I'm NOT going to pass it on because so many of you 'make my day'
and I don't want anyone to feel left out.
Feel free to send it on to someone if you wish.
NOW... on to Valentine's Day.
I had lots of fun sewing and creating and playing yesterday.
The only project I finished was this appliqued cupcake bordered with
my family's sentiments about cupcakes...
"The cupcake is the perfect dessert! Lovely to look at and even
better to eat. YUMMY!"
(The writing was done with a 05 Micron pen)
I photographed it on my messy work table so you could see the
chaos it evolved out of.
The scissors on the table gives you a gauge for the small size of this
I haven't decided where to tuck it in the house... but I do know that it
will outlast Valentine's Day.
I associate cupcakes with Valentine's Day because it's a day when there
always were cupcakes.
When I was teaching I was in cupcake heaven.
You have never seen so many red, pink, white, and chocolate
delights as in an elementary school.
Off to read a few blogs and work on my felted hearts so I can
share them with you on on Friday.
Love, love, love... that's what it's all about!
