I have had an idea for a Valentine stitch for a few years. I decided this is the year to stitch it and get it done! Brian and I shared the 3 chocolates that were in this little Russell Stover chocolate box.
freebie waiting in my stash for years. It is called Mouse's Valentine. Aren't they precious? I used this freebie for the heart framing them. This is stitched on white 28 count Meran linen, one over one.
Have a wonderful day my friends. It is the beginning of Lent. The kids will receive ashes twice today! Once at Mass at school and tonight at our church service. Do you partake in Lent? Do you receive ashes in your church? I have another question. Do you "give something up" for Lent? I still have that Catholic trait in me. (I was Catholic the first 30 years of my life. I became Lutheran like my husband and children.) I gave up Hot Chocolates and Tea Chai Lattes. I don't drink coffee or tea, but I drink those yummies once a day, at home, almost every day. A very small sacrifice really, I know. Once, when I was about 20, I gave up all sweets and all meats for the whole 40 days. Now that was a challenge! But I did it.
If you haven't seen, I am having a giveaway. Take a look here. I find it ironic that it is my "200 Follower Giveaway" and I lost one follower and am now back at 199. ;)
Well, anyhow, take care til tomorrow. I'll be back with the Secret Sweetheart Stitching post. =)
Stitching and praying,
