St. Valentine's Day Cancelled!

 

If you look up St. Valentine nobody really knows who he was or what he did and why on this day we celebrate love.  Did it really all start with the card companies wanting to sell cards?  Perhaps they had a bad Christmas one year and wanted to make some money, so thought February 14th St. Valentine's Day, sounds romantic lets make up some cards and get the people to buy them!  

Anyway this Valentine's Day DH is away at a business exhibition in the South so won't be home until late Thursday, leaving me with our two Boys (Eldest is out with his Girlfriend) so Youngest is with me.  He is, at this exact moment, in his room still in his PJ's watching a dvd.  They are on half term break this week and he has a cold, so not feeling 100%.  Treacle is keeping him company in bed!

I will be getting dinner ready for tonight for either two of us or four of us (Girlfriend may be here) and then doing the swimming run!

Back by ten and straight to bed with my book, a mug of hot chocolate and my hot water bottle!

Happy St Valentine's Day Everyone Else!!!!

  1. I don't have your email--- so let's chat here.... I took a twenty dollar class from Lisa Bongean herself. The beautiful of wool is the fact you don't have to fold the end under like other applique. It's relaxing. You can sit with the family and watch TV and stitch awya. Going on a road trip--- Back a block in your purse. I use elmer's glue stick to attach my pieces to the quilt block--- no pins!!!! DMC floss is cheap....I've even went to good will and found old men wool sport coats... Give it a try....

    1. Hi Melanie, thank you so much for letting me know about wool, I always look in on Sweet P Quilting & Creations and Paulette does a lot of wool work and it looks lovely. When I have my current projects done I think I will have a go. Thanks for replying it was lovely to hear from you. Susie x
