Valentine

I hope everyone is enjoying this day of love.
We successfully celebrated our Valentine's Day on Saturday evening with a trip to our favorite local tavern for pizza and then a trip to Wal-Mart.  Wow!  Did I just say that.....LOL!

Any who.....Here is my Valentine stitching for the year.  The flower pot was a gift that I received at a retreat in January.  The finishing idea came from our hostess Barb at Keepsakes.   The pattern is a freebie from Gigi Online.
I really enjoyed finishing this one.



We had a great day at school today.  Imagine 26 first graders anticipating the $2000 worth of sugar sitting there all morning.  We had so much "stuff" it took us 45 minutes to pass it out. 
I don't know how they held it together waiting for the party but they did.
We had so much fun passing out Valentine's and enjoying our treats.  A good time was had by all.

Happy Valentine's Day

Keep on stitchin' on,
Nan

Looks awesome!!!! I haven't even touched mine since I got home from the retreat...
DH folded up all the weekend's washed & dried laundry today - he called me at work to let me know that this was his Valentine’s Day gift to me. Guess what - I am very pleased with that gift! (I am not kidding, mind you!)

Happy Valentine’s Day from one low maintenance girl to another! :-D

Your Valentine stitchy is terrific. I love the design and the finish is just too cute! I am amazed at all the ways there is now to "finish" our stitching.

You got a meal out - I fixed DH his favorite meal, and he brought me flowers - pretty good.

Darling Valentine's Day pieces. So glad your 1st graders had a great party yesterday--I still remember how much I looked forward to Valentine's Day parties when I was a child--always hoping for that special valentine from some cute, little boy :)

How sweet is this? Growing from a flower pot, no less! Very nice job. I like how your Snowman turned out, too! Perfection!

Your Valentine turned out great! I asked my grandson if he gave out candy (I was looking at his haul of Valentines)and he said 'no, I don't want to rot my friends teeth.' So I said, well, I guess your friends want to rot out your teeth'. Head snap - WHAT!
