Happy Valentine's Day

Hope your day is a sweet one!

As I was washing dishes this morning, my husband came up behind me and whispered into my ear. "Happy Thanksgiving!"

I said to him, "Somehow that just took out all the romance of the gesture Dave."

Poor Dave, he's been working in the garage too long. He's cutting out hundreds of pincushion bases for me. I think inhaling sawdust is affecting him. He said he was thinking of Valentine's Day as he was walking toward me....but it just came out Thanksgiving. I think he misses the kids and turkey. If turkey was involved in this holiday and the kids were here, I'm sure he would get it right. I've been laughing about it all day....at least he gave me a good story to tell all my friends.

Of course we have to have a contest before Barb and I leave for Nashville. Be the first to get all the new Blackbird patterns. 5 sweetheart winners.

Just leave your entry in the comments section and I will do the number generator thing and let you know before we leave. Please only one comment per person. You have until midnight Monday. We will announce the winners on Tuesday.

Each winner will get: Honeysuckle Manor....our newest book,
5 new patterns and 1 cupcake wooden pincushion base. Enough to keep you busy stitching for at least a couple of months...

Good luck all!

And wishing you much chocolate, flowers and romance....and a turkey too!

Alma

  180. What a great way to brighten up another cloudy/snowy day here in Kansas! Sky if finally clearing as the twighlight falls. OH well--maybe sunshine tomorrow--we can hope. It seems this has been the dreariest of winters in a long time. I am ready for spring and your new patterns!
