Hearts and Love


Do you have big plans? Are you making anything for people you love? No big plans here. You know, we're married and have been for awhile. There will be a small gift and cards, no doubt, but there won't be dressing up and going dancing. If I'm lucky he'll watch a romantic movie with me - or a hockey game. I'm not complaining. If I'm very lucky, there will be a romantic movie, some chocolate, and some stitching on the sofa. No, "stitching on the sofa" is not a euphemism.

I have been inundated with heart imagery. Let's all get inspired, shall we

I know Polly is working on a rug right now that has lots of hearts in it. I'm not working on a heart quilt - but it's a quilt with heart....
This is the Golden Retriever quilt I am making. The borders are being stitched at the moment, so it's not quite finished.

No plans for us either, my husband works nights, so no special dinner either. After 37 years, it's the little things that count.

I am hoping for some crime drama myself. Love gone wrong maybe. I have everything I need which and most of what I want so I'm good without gifts. I have been lucky in love and a bunch of other stuff. Love the baseball Valentine. You're so clever. Love the golden quilt as well. I love the original too. See you soon.

Ooooh....we had to put our lab/golden retriever to sleep just before Christmas. Your quilt top makes me happy.
