In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Happy Valentine's Day!

And I have a heart!

I just realized that statement makes me sound like the Tin Man. Or the Grinch (wrong holiday).

Anyway, this part of Barbara Jackson's Sweet Heart of Mine is all stitched. And now I will start work on the back part of the envelope, assuming, of course, that I can stay awake. Dearly Beloved took me to dinner for Valentine's Day and it was lovely, especially since I had a pack of crackers for lunch. But I am not accustomed to big, rich meals, despite my large and lovely self, and I am about to nod off.

Snow report:  it's melting. It was beautiful while it lasted, and luckily our power stayed on despite flickering a couple of times,  but I think this is about all I need. The last time we had this much snow was ten years ago and I believe that we in the Carolinas can only cope with lots of snow about once a decade.  And this is after I declared I was done with winter several weeks ago! 

Actually, I think if I could have had a snow day or two, I would have enjoyed it more. Telecommuting can be a pain, especially when some of the resources you need are not where you are. However, I'm glad I didn't fall behind on the workload, especially since we're going on vacation soon. And, given the way the winter has gone thus far, I have a feeling we're heading into more snow.


  1. Just beautiful. It will be a very, very long time til our snow melts up here. =(

  2. Beautiful, Ann!

    Glad to know that you were able to keep your power and enjoy the snow. It is so beautiful when you don't have to venture out on the roads.

  3. Lovely stitching Ann!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Gosh that is so pretty! Lovely work.
