I must have been thinking about sewing when I came up with this window display
Paper hearts joined by giant stitches.
It's going to be a crazy few days in the flower shop with too many sharp rose thorns, but at least all the romance makes people smile. Today I helped a young man write a poem to his new girl friend. His excitement reminded me of the first flutter of love. I had another customer who has been buying his wife Valentines roses for 50 years. There's definitely amore in the air!
Have you noticed all the love going on in the bloggy world? Here's a few of my favourites...
Sis Boom is hosting a whole month of Love. There's things to print out and make and lots to oooohh and aaahhh at. You should see the collage Love cushion Jennifer has made!
Another must see is Basket Full of Scraps. Sujata has proposed a challenge for the month of February to make a small scrappy quilt with the theme of Love. The first quilt has been posted by Kelly of Pinkadot Quilts and it's absolutely stunning! I'm sure there'll be some other lovelies to follow soon.
Not necessarily about love but guaranteed to make your heart skip a beat is the 2 quilts shown in Chris Jurd's latest post at Patchwork Fundamentals. She never ceases to amaze me!!
So anyway, how about you? Do you have Valentines plans? You can always come and help me dethorn a zillion roses!
