Happy Valentine's Day!

 Hi friends! Happy Valentine's Day! 💕 Here is my corner shelf full of love. February Corner Shelf💕💌

Here are a few other February decorations.

Our cross stitch group finally had our Christmas party and gift exchange. You all were correct. Lisa does love the sewing box I made her and I am very glad.

These are the lovely gifts I received from my dear friend Colette. 

The little piece she stitched for me is by Prairie Schooler and is called Still Life. I love it on that PTP Shadow 40ct linen. Just gorgeous! 


This is what I finished last night.           🐩💕Hearts for Ronny💕🐩by Fox and Rabbit. 

This is a modified, pared down version of the pattern, given to me by my dear friend RoseAnn. You may have guessed I changed the colors of the poodles to look like Henry and Flossie? Correct! 😊 I stitched this one over one on 28ct pink Meran Linen with the called for DMC and my own choice of fancy flosses for my poodles. 😁 The backing fabric and ribbon are from my stash.

I baked gingerbread Flossies last night. Ha! I had a dog head cookie cutter. I bent it and reshaped it. I think it worked out fairly well to resemble a poodle head now.


I am back to stitching on God Bless America again.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”  John 13:34-35

I hope you have a wonderful day my friends, filled with LOVE! I am grateful for YOU and thank you for stopping by here today.

Stitching and praying,

I gave Flossie a haircut. I tried to get a picture afterwards. How funny. When I want a picture of Henry, he is not usually very cooperative. Now I could not get him out of the way! Well once I pulled out treats, I just had to be fast!🤪

February is definitely your month with all the pink everywhere, Vickie! Your corner shelf looks wonderful and the new heart-shaped poodle pillow is adorable. And yes! I can see the poodle shaped heads in the cookies--great idea :) Hope you enjoy your Valentine's Day, my friend! ♥

Your corner shelf looks mighty fine all decked out in its pink decor, Vickie. What a pretty pair of poodles you stitched and turned into a heart pillow! Yum on the Flossie cookies. The stitching and goodies you received from Collette are lovely.
