Happy Valentine’s Day!

“I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.”

HAHAHAHA! So true!

I am thinking back to when as kids we would make valentines in school…..or holders, boxes and bags to contain the valentines that were given to us by classmates – the anticiptation of what would end up in our little “mail” boxes by the end of the school day was almost as infectious as Christmas!

Remember covering shoe boxes with paper doilies, construction paper, glue and glitter? Great memories!

And those conversation hearts, that always seemed to end up tasting like soap, but we loved the colors and the sayings!

It’s going to be a full Valentine’s Day here --- I’m headed back to the chiro for a 10am appt. Did I win the chocolate kisses? I have no idea! Thanks to all of you for guessing along with me, I’ll let you know whether I did or not!

This afternoon I’m headed to Charlotte to meet up with Kim and Jason --- Hmmmmmm….if I leave a bit early would there be time to swing over to Gastonia and hit Mary Jos?!? Honestly….I should stay on track and get more of the book edits done. Those are hanging over my head! Besides the fact that I need more machine time than I need more fabric, that's for certain!

My Sweetie knows how much I love pink roses, and he surprised me with them on Sunday so I could enjoy them the full week of Valentine’s before I leave for Fort Myers and Naples Florida on the 20th! The little table topper is one an online group did as a Valentine’s swap when I lived in Texas. It comes out Every February 1st and stays the entire month --- I’m ashamed to say it’s the full extent of my Valentine’s Day decorating ---but I love it!

Have a Sweet Day, Everyone!

  8. Ft Myers and Naples? How did I not know that? I'm heading down to Englewood/Punta Gorda on Friday for the rest of the month. My mom has scoped out a quilt show for us to visit next week, but she didn't look for classes....

  9. Those roses are simply beautiful! As is the table topper!

    I want to stowaway with you ... I just LOVE the Ft. Myers/Naples area ... and it's SO much warmer there than it is here. And of course, there would the added blessing of a Bonnie workshop!
