TUSAL and a little Valentine's stitching


It's time to post our TUSAL photos...where did this month go?

Mr. Owl is guarding this month's orts...

Asher was here this weekend. He was fascinated by the pictures of all the snow at his aunt's house in Massachusetts. She lives in Quincy and they got 30" and lost power for awhile. I really really do not miss all that East Coast snow! We get a lot of rain here, but at least you don't have to shovel it!

Somehow, even with running all over after the little one, I managed to get a little bit of stitching done.

I finished up I Will Stitch You in My Heart from Heartstring Samplary.I have had this one since it weas first released, but somehow just never got around to stitching it. I don't know why...I love this design! Stitched on a piece of neutral evenweave with the DMC called for. I only made one change...using a red for the two hearts.

This next piece is a freebie from Jennifer at Feathers in the Nest. I stitched it on a rose colored evenweave fabric with a pink variegated thread. I think this is really cute...Jennifer always offers lovely little freebies on her blog. Thank you, Jennifer!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful relaxing weekend! Thanks for taking the time to visit!
