This is my seasonal exchange piece that was mailed yesterday.It should take it about a week to get there if it doesn't get caught in another snow storm which delayed my mailing it on time. I used a Sampler Girl pattern that I felt was appropriate for this kind of weather we have been having. I added a little heart shaped button to give it a Valentine flavor also. I used DMC 355 which I love the color. I don't know what fabric I used as it was in my stash. I added three different colors of beads to put a finish on the edge. I filled it with my crushed walnut shells which I really like to use. I hope it finds a happy home soon.
Our postal person brought me this darling Valentine from Diane of Indiana. I do not have a black finish and it looks perfect among my Valentine decorations. I love the colors she used and I will enjoy this for many years to come.
We have school tomorrow and that is good since we only had one day last week. We are due some more snow so we need to go while we can. We Okies are not used to this much at one time. :)
Now I need to finish my HoE reindeer. I will leave for Rome on the 17th of Feb., so I am getting nervous and excited. I am preparing to be a tour leader on our school trip this summer to England. I will try to post once a week even if it is just chit-chatting. I usually don't go this long and I want you to read my blog. So please come visit and leave a comment or two. The word of the week is Brrrrrrrrr.............
