Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends and family - it's a special day for Hubby and I as we were engaged on Valentine's Day in 1986 !!

It's Opening Day for the Needlecraft Valentine Exchange - the theme was hearts and friendship. The task was to stitch a scissor fob for your partner and also send three small gifts on the given theme.

I had great fun choosing my chart and stitching my fob - although I can't share just yet as my partner has not opened her gift. I hope she likes it :)

I have opened mine - it's been looking at me for over a week so I was very, very excited to be able to open it this morning.

My partner was Deb who is new to Needlecraft Haven but is an active member with lots of posts.

I have been very spoilt - Deb sent :
 
stitched a beautiful fob with scissors
an absolutely gorgeous beaded heart brooch
a quilted table mat
an apple scented candle
two quirky hearts
'Amour' by French Country
Weeks Dye Works Begonia
 
scissor fob with scissors

beaded heart

Valentine's Exchange parcel

I just love all my gifts - thank you so much Deb - I will be wearing my heart today as Hubby and I are off to the cinema this afternoon.

Enjoy your Valentine's Day - hug all you loved ones and hold them close x x x

Love your Valentine gifts, very pretty. Well done keeping to your rotation, I joined OPAM and intend to have my wips all finished this year, altho my Chatelaine is pushed to the bottom of my basket.. I might do a little on it!!
Happy Days
