Happy Valentine's Day!!!!

I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day today!!!  I am late in posting because we had company that was leaving out this morning, and I had errands to run very early before all the bad weather was to move in here.  I was able to take advantage of JoAnn Fabric's President's Day sale on Simplicity patterns for my daughter and I.  She and I were texting back and forth what patterns she wanted.  She wanted some patterns for a new Cosplay outfit, and I wanted a new formal dress pattern to make the next time my husband has a military event to attend. 

But let's get onto some stitching news now and show you what I sent to my daughter this year at college in her Valentine's Day box of goodies!!!  This is The Primitive Hare Small Valentine's design.  You can find her Etsy shop HERE.  I did change a couple of things on Isobel's design, and I hope she doesn't mind.  I wanted it to be more personal for my daughter.  I took out the bird in the postage stamp and added I ♥ U, added an additional heart in the top left corner on the back side, changed the date to 2015, and I added in my daughter's name and Love, Mom.  This is stitched on 32ct white Belfast linen with HDF threads.  She LOVED it and has it next to a little mailbox in her dorm room.

I have had a great Valentine's Day today.  Our son wanted to do something nice for my husband and I so he bought us Chick Fil A as a Valentine's Day present to us both.  I LOVED IT!!  That was soooo sweet of him.  I gave him some Valentine's Day candy, and he shared it with me too!!!  What a little gentleman!!!  My hubby, MY VALENTINE, gave me a gift certificate to the Attic Needlework.  WOOHOO  What stitcher wouldn't want a gift certificate to any needlework shop!!!!???!!!!  So yes.....bonus points for hubby!!!! 

I'm back to stitching tonight!!!  WOOHOO!!!  I will have more to share later on this month!!!

As always.......HAPPY STITCHING!
