It's here! Red and pink hearts...paper lace doilies...Valentine exchanges...boxes of mystery chocolates. Mystery chocolates are those kinds that you have to poke with your finger to see what's inside before you eat one. If there's one thing I've learned over the years when pondering a box of mystery chocolates, and hear me now - ask me later, because this is the most important mystery chocolate rule of thumb you will ever need to know: the square chocolates are 99.9% of the time always caramel inside. I don't even bother with the dark chocolates...that's not how I roll. If they're round and smooth on top, you might have a chocolate covered cherry on your hands. I will consume almost any kind of milk chocolate. It's who I am. It's what I do.
Sewing is also what I do and love and here is a picture of some fabric Valentines that I recently made from vintage material that was handed down to me by a quilting group. It was found in a fabric stash of a dear lady who had passed away, but in her lifetime made several quilts and soft animals for sick children. The quilting group couldn't use the fabric because some of it was cut into many odd sizes for various quilts. The fabric has a good essence to it and I will never get rid of it, even if I can't use it.
Anyway...Happy Valentine's Day! Share the love!
