After an exhausting....yet fun....Holiday Season I took a little time off at the first of the year.
And let me tell ya.....it's been a struggle to get caught up.
I'm embarrassed to tell you that all the Christmas decorations are stored away but the poor naked tree is still here in the living room. It's become a joke amongst the family now. I think there might even be some betting going on how long it will take to turn brown and fall apart.
But I'm wiping the slate clean....as you can tell by my new Blog template : )
I needed a little something plain and clean to look at for a bit.
Heck, I might even get the tree out of the house.
I'm ready to start fresh.
I wanted to offer this sweet little design to everyone
To My Sweet Pinkeep Pattern
This was a design for my Girls Club last year.
And it's just so darn sweet I had to offer it to everyone.
It's a nice quick stitch with one color of floss.

And this is a Brand New Pattern
This sweet little sampler is the size of a postcard and can actually be sent to your Valentine.
I've attached the linen to a piece of matboard so you can write your greeting on the back and pop it in the mail.....although I recommend slipping it down in an envelope to prevent damage.
It's a very quick stitch so you can make one for all you Valentine's
And I have to tell you the story behind the bundle of letters tied with ribbon in the picture of the Valentine Postcard. They are my Grandma and Grandpa's love letters. Grandma will be 95 this Spring and she was kind enough to let me borrow them.
And they are amazing!!!!
My Grandpa was such a romantic....I had no idea.
And in each of his letters at the very bottom he wrote in French his love and devotion to Grandma.
Love letters are a dying art.....so sad.
Let's keep it going. I'm going to chose some beautiful stationary and write a couple letters to people that are close to my heart. Just a quick note to let friends know that I appreciate their kindness and friendship.
Heck....I might even write one to my husband : )
Maybe you could take a few moments and write a couple yourself.
Until next time my friends....
