More finishes!

I have been quite busy since my last update. I have 6 finishes to share! The first 4 things are what I made to send out to others. They all are Lizzie Kate patterns. I really love Lizzie Kate because those are so cute and simple to stitch. The first one I made 3 of the same one to send out to others. The one I made into a scented sachet and the other 2 I made into door hangers. The saying says it all in its simplicity! Live simply laugh often and love deeply. I want to make this for myself sometime. The next one I kept it very simple and made it into a bookmark. I picked this one for my friend because I know she likes flowers and the say Gather friends like flowers I knew she would get a kick out of it! The last 2 things I stitched are for me. They are both by Curtis Boehringer. The first one is the February block from the 3 for 2 club and then the last one is my February angel from the barefoot angel of the month club. For the life of me no matter how many times I took this pic I was so unsuccessful in getting a decent one which is frustrating!

Valentine's day is around the corner. Me and Mike celebrated a few days early and it was such a lovely day! This is the first year in about 5 years that we have been in a better place financially to actually to be able to afford to go out and get something for one another. I got Mike an MP3 player. He has been wanting one for some time and now he finally got one. Even though my son James has one as well he threw a stink because Mike's is black and like his mom he likes the color black as well so he was trying to get Mike to trade with him. Mike got me a beautiful necklace of a black heart than has little diamonds all around it. We went out to eat at our favorite restaurant and we went window shopping before heading home to enjoy the rest of our evening in quiet and enjoy each others company. Today we are celebrating as a family and going to a movie the 3 of us and going out to eat and then our Valentine's day celebrations will be over and done with! It was a good day the other day with me and Mike and I look forward to more times like this after many years of not being able to. Happy Valentines day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!
