February 14th already?
I can't believe it's Valentine's Day already! It seems like New Year's was just last week.
A quick recap of what I've been up to since my last post:
We had some work done on the house in the time leading up to the holidays, and I had to pack up my sewing room for a bit.
Christmas came and went with all the flurry of celebration and preparation. We played host for our family gathering this year, and had a grand time.
In January, my father took a fall and fractured a rib and 4 vertebrae, so much of my time lately has been spent in hospital rooms and then at the rehab hospital. Fortunately, Dad is on the mend and will be back home soon.
One crafty project that I finished is a crocheted doily that I had been working on for a while.
here. Although it called for white crochet cotton, but the pinwheel center reminded me of a poinsettia so I decided to make it in red and use it for Christmas. Of course, being red, it doubles as a Valentine's decoration too.
I don't actually decorate too much for Valentine's day because I like to keep around some of the Christmas decor even after Christmas. For example, this pitcher and flowers and the little snowman are still on my mantle:
Happy Valentine's Day!
