Hello February!

Did it not seem that it was January for entirely too long? Those 4 weeks felt more like 4 months to me... I was busy working and stitching and trying to avoid colds & flu... but, some days it seemed as if January would never leave...

So... Hello to February! The month of Valentines, Hearts, Lace, Roses and Chocolate! Ooooooh yah! Now we're talkin'! I do have some finishes I plan on sharing with you in the next couple of days. Seems the stitching is easy... but, making the stitching into "something" always takes a bit longer...

I do want to give a HUGE Thank You to Valerie over at The Wooden Acorn! She had a rather big, multi part giveaway over at her blog... and I was the lucky winner of the Maggie Bonanomi "With These Hands" Book and a gorgeous Wool Flower Pillow kit!

I embarrassed to say I already had the book (because I LOVE Maggie's style!)... but, when I let Valerie know that, she was gracious enough to let me substitute by picking something from her Etsy store. I found a cute little wool pattern by Front Porch Quilts called Apple Orchard. The completed piece finishes up at 6.5" square! AND, Valerie also sent along some gorgeous Valdani's as a bonus... to help along with the embroidery on the Apple Orchard quilt! SWEET! :-)

Remember... be sure and check back here in a couple of days... for some pictures of stitching finishes... and I've also been putting together some items for a little giveaway... because when I win a giveaway... I enjoy paying it forward! :-)

Until next time... Stay Healthy and Keep on Smiling!
