Happy Valentines Day!



One of my favorite sewing projects is making
lavender-filled hearts.
February is the perfect month to do it too.

(but then, I think anytime is the perfect time to sew)


When I was a little girl, making homemade Valentines was my
favorite thing about the day.

Nothing's changed...I still love it.



Wishing all of my lovely friends a Happy Valentine's Day!

Dear, dear JUNE! HELLO! What a joy it is to see you today on my comments page! I was unable to get that function to work for so long but today, IT WORKED! Thank you for visiting and it is lovely to see your world of white, pink and everything in between, seen through your eyes. I wish you and everyone in your household a fabulous day! Love your creativity....

Lady Pamela said...

Thank you so very much for the lovely Valentine's.
I used to sew everyday when I was a young girl. When my first daughter was born, I stopped. I was always afraid she would get into the pins and hurt herself. I have sewn very little since.
I am fortunate that my dear sister has agreed to sew all my special projects.
