Valentines and Stitcheries

I decided to get back to stitching the past couple days.I needed something to hang on my old window and I had a spot in my room that needed a stitchery. I decided to make a bag with a willow tree stitched on it for the window. I filled it with sweet annie and some red berries. Then I stitched a verse for my room. I made the hearts in the basket and the heart with the crows a couple years ago. That's the only Valentine decor in my house. Today is supposed to be a warm 48 for the high. I think I will do pilates this morning and go for a walk this afternoon instead of riding the bike again. Jamie (Miller Homestead), can you move here to Nebraska and be my walking partner ? It's so nice to have a walking partner ! I always had walking partner's in Illinois. When one would move I was always able to find a new one. Paige can be my partner some days, but she doesn't enjoy it as much as I do ! I noticed that I'm not far from my 200th post. I'll have to start working on something for a giveaway. Maybe I'll do a spring giveaway.I also found out yesterday that I won a great valentine giveaway over at Unmatched Socks blog. I'm so excited to get all those wonderful goodies ! I'll post a picture when they arrive ! Well, that's all for today. Have a happy Thursday!

Congrats on your win Janae...I saw all the goodies also and I am sure you will love them. I actually have a few of the items and thought they were adorable.

Oh I love the stitchery you are going to make...you really have a talent in all the things you make. I really enjoyed the goodies you sent me for the holidays...since being new to blogger I didn't even think to take pics and share. I am so sorry yours was my first giveaway and I did not it was proper to post about this but I have learned a few things now.

I have been looking for a walker also...guess I am going to have to make hubby get with the program with me.

Oh my, I love each and every piece!

It's a lovely day for a walk here. My only walking partners are a little dog and a cat who stays about 20 feet behind me the entire way. LOL But she still makes it the entire mile!

Smiles,
