Valentine's Day

Parsley and I decided to do a private Valentine's exchange deemed the 14 days of Valentine's Day, where we buy 14 gifts for one another in the $1 to $3 range, wrap them, and mail them to the other person, and every day from February 1 through February 14 we open one gift and post it on our blog.

I received Parsley's package today and she included two extra gifts for me to enjoy right now!  A pin/needle pillow she made out of a Lizzie Kate design that she tailored to my love of the color purple and my word for the year, peace.  And she included a box of candy.  How awesome is she?!??!????!  I LOVE all of it!!!!  I will enjoy the candy later today, oh, yes, I will, and I immediately put my needles in the pillow and it is sitting right next to my stitching chair.



And here are the 14 other gifts in all their wrapped gloriousness!  I put this box high on a shelf in my closet so I won't be tempted by it.  I can't wait to start unwrapping!


Enjoy your Tuesday, everyone!  I know mine just got a bit brighter!

In peace, love and stitches,
Danielle

You will really need willpower for this! Especially after the first gifts turned out to be so fabulous!

WHOO HOO! So glad you got it. I enjoyed stitching the 'peace' pillow for you. The purple thread was yummy!

I'm excited about our exchange! HUGS
