Then I thought, well goodness it's almost Valentine's Day. Just a month away! (Have you gotten your SO a card yet? Me either.) So I made this small quilt for my 6" Ackenfeld hanger.
I love to talk and I love to write so putting words into my stitching comes naturally to me. Here are a couple of word stitcheries that are favorites of mine.
But you know none of these really says anything about me, about who I am. So I'm also going to share with you this little quilt that I have hanging on my office door. I'm a "wasn't I just retired yesterday?" high school guidance counselor, returning to work after nine years at home. Returning to retirement in June by the way. This is me:
Nice really does matter. Really.
Thanks so much to Linda for coordinating this hop for us - there are a lot of little details that have to work together for this to happen and that takes time. And thanks to Madame Samm for dreaming up the whole concept and starting us on the right track. And a double thank you to all our wonderful sponsors - such amazing gifts!
Please be sure you visit everyone on the hop today...you want to miss a one! blessings, marlene
