Happy Valentine's Day - a day late!


I made many, many Valentines 
this month.
Most of them were sent to members of our church
who have become shut-ins over the past few years.
These are dear old friends
whom we have known since joining our church
thirty some-odd years ago.
I miss seeing these folks,
and wanted to brighten their day.
So I painted, dyed, stitched, beaded,
stamped and quilted these babies.

I also have three dear friends 
who celebrate birthdays on Valentine's Day,
and one whose birthday falls on the 13th.
I made cards for them as well.

And then of course there are my two 
Grand Cherubs.
I wanted to make Valentines for them -
something special and different.

I hope you had a wonderful day,
and found something sweet
to savor.

peace

So colorful and a great way to spread some cheer. I'm going to need you to poke me in January to get busy. Have a fun filled weekend!

Hi Judy, Well I clicked on these and made the photo bigger, so that I could get a better look. You are probably getting tried of hearing how much you amaze me . . . but it's hard to say anything else. You're a sweetie pie with a huge heart and a talent to match.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
