A Sweet gift and a couple finishes....

Everyone loves a surprise....right??
My sweet friend Linda P totally surprised me with this box of goodies yesterday... How shocked was I when I opened these pretties??

 She showered me with trims, Valentines sticky notes and tissues, a handmade card, a beautifully stitched red heart and CHOCOLATE!!!!
 This is the daintiest of little pillows for my "reds" basket~~~~~
 And on the back, she attached the tiniest heart button.... Too cute I tell ya~~~
Thanks from the bottom of my heart Linda... You are the bestest!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I have been sewing a little in the craft room....
Here is a freebie I ran across on The Primitive Needle's blog...

Very prim and a very quick stitch....
 ~~~~~~~~~~

I also finished this Lizzie Kate snippet called "Be Mine Valentine"...
I envisioned it finished up as a needle book...

 Inside I fastened a "Love" charm and planted a few special heart topped pins...

 If you look real close, you can see "Love" imprinted in the hand....Aren't those pink stones too cute?? When I spotted this charm at Michael's, I couldn't resist getting it..I knew it would come in handy one day~~~


So, here's hoping everyone has a fantastic Valentine's Day tomorrow....

Cheer's to ya~~~

What a neat surprise. Great job on the finishes. I wish I knew how to finish stuff. I don't have a sewing machine so I can't even finish ornaments. Oh well. Someday. Happy Valentines Day.
