I spent my snow days stitching and finishing Be Kind and Be True. I like how it turned out. I want to eventually get this framed and hang it in my bedroom.

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. We did not celebrate in a big way this year. Our iPhones from a couple of weeks ago were our Valentine's Day present to each other. The three of us went out to dinner last night, and it was nice to get out of the house. Jake brought home a rose in a vase for me over the weekend. He is a very thoughtful boy and always tries to do special things for me. He spotted the roses in our local grocery store last week when I sent him and his dad on an errand. Michael is very good about "helping" him do things like this. I am a lucky girl to have such a great son and a great husband.
I haven't been to work in a week (not that I am complaining...). We are out again today. Not sure if we will go back tomorrow. We didn't get a lot of snow this round, but it will depend on how well the back roads get cleared today.
Since finishing BK&BT, I have been working on Molly by Carriage House Samplings. Seeing Siobhan's finish of Mary Margaret and my mom commenting on Molly's cat being pretty has spurred me forward on her. :) She is fun to stitch. I love the fabric (Lakeside Linen Vintage Autumn Gold) and the silks. I had been stitching in qsnaps lately, but went back to stitching in hand with BK&BT and Molly and had forgotten how much faster I can stitch when I am stitching in hand. It has been a nice change of pace.
Short post today....
Have a good one. Stay warm!
