HoE Valentine Exchange




I'm going to go ahead and post my HoE Valentine Exchange. My partner hasn't officially acknowledged receiving it, but I know she has. I stitched primitivebetty's "Oh Sweet Valentine" into a simple pillow that can be tucked into an area. I used DMC thread, and a mystery fabric from Silkweaver. Also included some ribbon, two battery operated tea lights and some candy.

On the stitching front I've been working on my HoE biscornu exchange and the year long Prairie Schooler exchange. Have to stitch them early because I'm taking a bus trip with the old folk to the Cajun Mardi Gras this month.


Yesterday was the first day I was able to leave the house. The main streets in town were clear, but my residential street was still ice packed as was my driveway. My friend Lynn and I drove to Tulsa to the Super Bowl sale at our LNShops. I was very good by not adding too much to my stash. We had lunch at Ted's, the best Mexican restaurant in the Tulsa area. There was a 30-45 minute wait, but well worth it. Needless to say, both of us enjoyed it. The portions are so large that Lynn was able to take her husband a to go box full of food. I didn't do too shabby either!


Hope everyone has a great stitching week.

Oh, what a cute exchange! One of these days I am going to have to overcome this fear of actually learning how to sew so I can make pillows like that.
