Gifted Gorgeousness

An abundance of gorgeousness delivered to my door.  A beautiful bouquet of red/pink Valentine roses from my sweet sons, G & D

Beautiful

They are so very thoughtful, amazingly generous, and sweeter than sweet.  These guys are, without a doubt, what makes my heart happy.

My DH surprised me with this very pretty, and oh so DELICIOUS, heart shaped Valentines cake.  He ordered it from my favorite local bakery.  I meant to take a picture of it before we cut a slice (or two), oops!


Dark chocolate cake, strawberry filling, and a simply delicious frosting, does it get any better than that? Very sweet…cake and DH!

Now, time for some stitchy Gifted Gorgeousness.  It's the 15th of February, already!  Here's my progress…

2015 Gifted Gorgeousness SAL
Designer: Little House Needlework
Design: Lantern Lane

My dear friend, Vonna gifted me this kitted up LHN project for my birthday and I have decided to stitch it as part of the SAL.  This will be such a nice addition to my sampler wall. Thank you again, Vonna!

I recently started working on Cubby Hole Quilt. It needs to be complete by early May.  

Cubby Hole Quilt 

There are a total of 221 five inch blocks in this quilt. 

The snow continues to fall, as do the temperatures. It's freezing, only 5 degrees outside and the snow continues to pile up ~ everywhere…



Little Emma is changing daily.  She is turning gray, as Yorkshire Terriers do, and continues to be cute as ever…



Thank you for stopping by.
Until next time…

Marie, lovely Valentine gifts, Unfortunately TraderVic was very slack this year and I received nada, niente and nothing! Your GG looks great, too and I love that snow as we do not get that in Melbourne!

You were so spoilt by your family, wonderful flowers and a delicious cake, what do you want more for a Valentine's Day.
Nice progress on your gifted charts, it's such a beautiful design. And your new quilt blocks are looking so great. I love this cubby hole pattern a lot.

OH my, it's really cold in your part of the world. Two weeks ago we had the same heaps of snow but during the lasz week it started melting and although the ground is still covered everywhere it's only up to 5" on the ground. I hope the cold will go away soon where you live.

Little Emma looks adorable, especially with that little bow.

Gosh, you are living in a lot of cold right now! Good thing you have all those gorgeous projects on hand to keep you happy indoors!

Looks like Valentine's Day was especially sweet for you, Marie!

How nice to be spoiled by your men on Valentine's Day, Marie! And how nice that you have little Emma to buy such cute pink accessories for :)

Love the piece you're working on--glad you have your stitching to keep you warm and happy during this cold spell. We're at 4 here right now, but only have about six inches of snow...
