Happy Valentine's Day







I finished my V-day present to my hubby tonight, a little hanging pillow with some festive fabric trim and heart buttons.

Here are some more cute pictures of Philo: he sleeps like this with his paws in the air all the time.

I think Mike and I are planning to visit a local museum for our date tomorrow. I hope you have something special planned, even if it's just to sit with your feet up and stitch. :)

Love,
Rachel

A museum date sounds great! We have a favorite museum. We always take the girls because I want them to have the exposure, but someday soon we are going to go alone and listen to a headset. Have a great weekend!

Very pretty velantine pillow, such a lovely design.

Philo looks so cute, furry cuddles to him from me.

Your finishing is lovely. I guess I am too late to tell you to eat at the museum--it's really good and not nearly as expensive as you'd expect. Also, the mushroom soup is great! I hope they have Andrew's blue parka painting up still--it's newish and that blue parka just kills me.

I like your Valentine's gift for DH. Philo looks quite comfy in that chair and he seems to be enjoying his nap. I just love when our kitties sleep like that with their paws up in the air. Hope you had a good time at the museum.

Rachel:

Love your blog. 'Twould be wonderful if you'd post a tutorial for some of the finishing techniques you use. I'm especially dying to know how to make pillows. And I'd love to know how to edge them with twisted-DMC cord. Teach me, please! I'm paying an arm and a leg to have my things finished for me.

My name is Rachel, too.
