Happy Valentine's Day!
Ahhhh, Valentine's Day. You either love it or hate it. I was in a small shop this afternoon and it was filled with men, young and old, trying to pick the perfect gift for their sweethearts. And then there was the old stand-by...flowers from the 7 Eleven!
My husband used to bring me flowers every Friday. And he usually brought them to my mom as well. A good old Southern boy...his mama raised him right!
The quilt above is one I made several years ago. The lettering is from A Quilter's Alphabet by Anita Shackelford (more info here). I've used that Old English alphabet numerous times over the years for both applique and quilting.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
P.S. I am so excited!!! See the blue, underlined "here" above? I finally figured out how to make the link without having the complete URL in the blog! Underwhelming news? Yes, I know--really only a personal best for me--thus the "personal".
