Today I made some valentines.
I have always loved making valentines. My sister and I would spend long hours in my room when we were young cutting out doilies and gluing them to pink construction paper and making a big glittery mess. In the last several years I have started making sewn valentines. The cards I made today incorporate the scraps from the Plain Spoken quilt I pieced for my yet-to-be-born neice, Emerson Rose (whose due date, by the way, is on Valentine’s Day). They are now for sale in the shop.
We are currently experiencing a January thaw – it was 54 degrees out on our way home from Tot Time and dare I say we are going to the playground this afternoon!
Roxanne is going through a “I will not eat anything at all and if I even try something and you think I’m going to eat it, don’t worry, I will spit it out my half-chewed food and scream for a good fifteen minutes” phase. God help us. We are pretty much down to Craisins and yogurt smoothies. Check out finslippy, one of my favorite blogs, for a very funny post by someone else going through the same thing.
*Hey, it’s International De-Lurking Week so come on out and say hello. I’d like to hear from you!
