Happy Valentine’s Day!

In just a few days it will be Valentine’s Day.   I’ve always wanted to do a small stitching and I found one last year when I was in Colorado…of course, I only worked on it this week.   It was done on an Irish Linen 26 count over one thread with DMC and Weeks Dye Works Begonia.  The delicate lacy look attracted me to this  JBW pattern called French Country Love.

And then I completed stitching a couple of more ornaments I was working on….”He’s a Flake”…the third in the LHN series for this year.   The ornaments are completed, but not “finished.”  I guess I’d better get to that this weekend.

And without an additional photo, I did complete another “Peace and Joy” Santa ornament from the Drawn Thread.  (You can see the first one on my side bar.)  I gave this first one away to my very special sister-in-law for Christmas.  I loved it so much I had to make another.

It has been busy at the office.  I gave notice to work only two days per week rather than five days per week as of the end of March.   I hope this will relieve a lot of stress I have been under this past year.   In addition, after the health problems my DH and I had recently, I think it is time to spend a LOT more time together rather than at the office.   Life is just too short…I want to live it to the fullest!

Happy Valentines Day to ALL!    Amities, Averyclaire

    Your heart and He’s a Flake are both wonderful! Great job. Congrats on your third finish, too. 🙂

    Good for you for reducing your hours. Life is short. Enjoy it.

    I love everything you have stitched. It would appear we have the same taste in stitching. Plus your finishing is superb! Love your bow tying – it’s great. Oh heck I just love it all.

    Hi again,
    I emailed you to thank you for your lovely comments on my blog but apparently you haven’t received it because it went to no-reply something or other. But I do want to thank you a lot and to let you know that you have been added to my list of blogs that I love to visit so I will know every time you post something new.
