Happy Valentine's Day.....and Blog anniversary!!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!!  Oh today started out WAY early for me today.  First off, I was stitching on 1 part my husband's Valentine's Day present until 3am this morning.  Yes....you read that right....I was xstitching until 3a.m.  hehe   I do a LOT of my best stitching in the wee hours of the morning before anyone gets up.....or has already gone onto bed the night before.  That is my time.  I had started MBT Pray Building Block for him but did ask as secretively last night which color of silk did he like better with the green stitching......the yellow silk or the red variegated silk?  He asked if he could see the pattern.  I said, "No."  He asks me, "Is this a project for that part of my office wall that is empty?"  I replied, "Not if you keep asking me questions and not answering my question of which color silk looks better."  Needless to say.....his comment was "yellow" which is what I was thinking all along.  But I tend to second guess myself when it comes to his projects for his office wall.  I want his input as he will be the one to look at it and I don't want to waste my time stitching on something that he thinks is just "ok" and not "Oh wow!!!!  Look at what my wife stitched for me!" 

But I digress on what I am wanting to share for today.  I stitched up this MBT ornament from the 2011 JCS ornament magazine that I saw last month on Stitching Lotus Smalls SAL post.  Lee, of Lake Stitcher Blog posted her picture of what she stitched for her daughter who was in college.  You can read more about it on her blog link that I have posted.  Soooooo, I thought that was sooo cool that I would do the same for my daughter who just went off to college last fall.  I had that magazine, and I just pulled supplies from my stash to stitch this design up for her as well and make it into a pinkeep for her to hang in her dorm room. 

Here is what I stitched and made for her.




I thought it turned out really cute.  It stitched up SOOOOOO QUICKLY as well.  Grace got her Valentine's Day box just today on Valentine's Day.  It was supposed to arrive yesterday but they had snow that delayed the postal delivery.  She LOVED IT and all the other candy goodies and stuff from home. 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  We are keeping it simple tonight with pizza and a movie I bought today. 

Happy Stitching!

    1. Oh I did enjoy the pizza! I even thanked the clerk at the pizza place (locally owned shop) for even working on Valentines Day which shocked her! She thought it would have been slow being that it was Valentines Day but said they had been swamped.

      At least I didn't have to fix or cook anything myself! hehe

  2. I KNOW your Valentine's day was terrific! I decided, after thinking about your finish last night, that I will stitch that for my daughters's birthdays this year. In their favorite colors. I have about 16 days to get the first one done! Yikes!! Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs!
