be my valentine
Oh, I love this holiday. So needed in sunlight starved January.
Plans are underway for our 7th annual Goates Girls Mother-Daughter Valentine Party (which Audrey always quibbles with, because the daughters have actually only been invited for 4). We're passing out invitation cards at random, so if you're local and we haven't run into you lately, feel free to come: Saturday, February 6th, 10 am-noon.
Hmmm...what Valentine love projects to pursue this year?
I was really inspired by Martha's list, of course. This year the girls' valentine piles will include candy gems in treasured chests
For Marian's class, I think we'll combine these packaging ideas:
sewn glassine and blown kisses
I want to do the spotted secret messages, though I suspect it will be too much this year.
And I want someone to knit me some of these hearts. Feel free.
Purl bee, always charming, came through with these fantastic felt rose barrettes. One for me, too!
And I'm inspired by this by Stephanie Congdon. "I'm sticking with you." Sold out, of course (hers do, so quickly!), but I'm not too sad: I happen to have quite the stash of brown and green materials...
