Valentines Day, Hearts, Sewing and Bloopers!

Happy Valentines Day everyone -
 I hope today that you have spent time with the people you love,
I have had a wonderful few days with my Valentine Morgan, we had dinner out yesterday and went to see Tangled in the cinema

It was really very good, and we saw it in 3D, it was very cute, funny and romantic but is it just me or are Disney characters looking more and more like my husband?!

This Valentine I have created two new patterns Be my Valentine Garland and Valentine Wreath so I hope you like them! if you do make any of my patterns please let me know s I would LOVE to see them :)

So Morgan and I have been an item for years in fact - this is our 11th Valentines Day together! over the years we have done everything you can do and bought everything you can buy! so we decided that this year we would simply hand make our gifts - and so began  "His Blanket"

A patchwork blanket - over 6foot and three inches in height!

Each patch has a special meaning

On the four corners I stitched little tassels, he loved the blanket and we stayed cuddled under it all last night while watching telly - I am so very proud of the work I put into this blanket and I would like to thank Morgans aunt Mary for all the help she gave to me,

So do you want to see what Morgan made me?? of coarse you do!

 A Chanel inspired bag! look at all the hard work he put into this! how blessed am I? I love it so much

In work this week I worked on making hearts with the residents and they really did a wonderful job!

Below  is my latest YOUTUBE video in it you will see how big the blanket is- make sure to watch it to the end to catch the funny bloopers!

Today I started work a little later then usual and when I walked in, there to greet me at the reception was a dozen red roses! I really do have a very special husband.

On Valentine’s Day, we think about
The people who are dear,
How much they add to life’s delight
Whenever they are near.

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

I am fortunate to know you all,
That's why I want to say,
To rare and special people:
Happy Valentine's Day!
