A Valentine Mystery

I just couldn't help myself when I hit my stash on Tuesday. I wanted something small to work on with my scouts, so I pulled out this little Valentine I snagged when Stitchcraft closed its doors. (sad face) The fabric is pink dahlia jobelan and requires really good lighting. But it's gorgeous. You'll notice that the pattern says "A Valentine Message." I'd like to take out the word "message" and replace it with another word or two. Any ideas? "A Valentine Memory"? "A Valentine for You"? And then there's this Independence Day sampler. It's from an old magazine--musta been about 1986. It's kinda elegant except for the 2 teddy bears flanking the heart at the bottom. I'm not sure if I'll get back to work on it or not. We'll see.

I still haven't named that quilt from my last entry. Argh!

Currently on the iPod: "Sentimental Journey" sung by Doris Day
