WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING, YOU ASK?

 I have been doing a little Valentine decorating around the craft room.


 I have also been doing a little, very little stitching......

 
I also found this piece I stitched back in the late 90's. I can't remember who the designer is. It used to be in a frame. I removed it. I may paint that piece of wood under it and mount it with some trim around it. Drill two holes and hand with ribbon.. That is what I am thinking....



 I bought these yesterday. Yes, I am eating my way to 3 designs by Brenda.. ( WTN&T ) The two heart shaped ones are for her latest design. The Sampler Box is for her design,  Strawberry Hill Sampler. I have that chart. I have not purchased Valentine Sampler yet. I can at least eat all the chocolate first... I did good on the Sampler Box.. It is Sugar Free.  I will mention in this post I have lost 16 pounds to date!  I may gain some back.. I will limit myself to one piece a day.. We will see how long that last!!  lol
I will leave you with a picture of my work area. I will get back to working on the stitching so that I can get my Valentine Box finished this weekend. 
Quickie... I do have pictures of Trailer Makeover.. They are on my other camera. I will try and post them this weekend. We are finishing up at the moment..
Happy Weekend Stitching to everyone!!!!
