Hearts Friday

Did you survive the snowpocolypse? My boys finally went back to school today. By snow day number two, I had systematically surveyed the house and removed any last vestiges of snowmen from the premises. I talked with my sister, Tina, on the telephone that day, and she had just done the same thing.

"I don't want them to feel too welcome any more," she said. My sentiments exactly!

The snowmen had to go. That meant stowing all of my winter stamps and needle art patterns as well.

I pulled out a nice February project last night and had a lot of fun stitching again. There's no better way to pass the snowy nights than with a Hallmark Valentine movie on the television and a needle art project in hand.

I made a card that encompasses both today!

Today is Wear Red for Women day. Don't forget to wear red to bring awareness to the number one killer of women in the United States: heart disease. Know the signs and symptoms, ladies, and do what you can to prevent heart disease. Eat a heart healthy diet. Maintain a healthy weight. Exercise every day. Brush and floss your teeth daily. Control your stress and love your families, including the furry members.

Your kind comments warm my heart, friends! Happy Friday!


  1. have you been taping my telephone conversations?! I kid you not, I just told mom this morning that I was saying goodbye to all my snowmen. Everything came down and spring is coming out slowly. Are we sisters or what? I love Tina's line...she's always good for a laugh! Much love.

  2. I wore red on Friday. Thanks for spreading the word. Your craft project looks so cute. It reminds me of smocking. I just love that look.

  3. Another cute card in which everything coordinates so well! Always love seeing your stitching projects too. TFS.
