A Stitchy Valentine Vignette

 Happy Thursday !
I set up this Valentine vignette in the living room ..Two cross stitched monthly pieces ..a couple thrift store books with red covers..a dried hydrangea from our garden and a wooden love sign.
 Last year I made this chalkboard with crocheted flowers for Valentines day decor.. My daughter wanted it for her house so it hangs in her hallway ..
 I also made these crochet rose heart pillows..I still have one its on our bed..but surprisingly 2 of them have ended up at my daughters house too :)
My progress on the giant granny square blanket ..a few more rows and the border..and sewing in all the ends..
Yesterday after more snow the night before..
Today the sun is shining .. this was the sunrise this morning !
Have a wonderful weekend!

My mother cross stitched and crochet for years until she couldn't anymore. I have beautiful work of hers in my home. I'm sure your daughter thinks of you everytime she looks at your beautiful creations. I'm sure you're thrilled to have all the months completed. Beautiful! I have an afghan my mother made when I was in high school. I so treasure it. Stunning sunrise, Kathleen in Az
