.....and it was a much more celebrated holiday for me when I was still in elementary school. What fun it was to decorate a box at school, and then exchange valentines with class mates......maybe stick some little candy hearts in the envelopes. Then the girls would get together and speculate what it all meant. Your imagination could run wild in putting to much emphasize on the sentiment in the valentine.
I went to visit my quilt cupboard to fine this quilt which was a Red Wagon design of years ago. It needs to be out a bit to refresh it's self. It will find a home for a while over the back of my napping chair.
I believe I will keep my angel quilt our for a while longer. This is a pillow which I made a few years ago from a Needle Love book. I am going to work on a string of hearts I've been dreaming about for awhile.
A bowl of hearts will be on my kitchen table. Many of these are from one of my patterns called Gathering Hearts. I want to make a few different ones, so that I will have some to give a way.
Here is the Heart Table Mat I will give a way today to the sixth person to respond. I have decided I will no longer be doing the monthly drawing, because many winners never claimed their free pattern. I have decided that I want the free patterns to be for those who read my blog.
