Happy Valentines' Day!

Seen in the window of a florist on University Place:

Given to friends at school:

Tsia did the fingerprints, I did the drawings, and we both did the gluing (with LOTS of glue):

Given to teacher (do you remember doing this? You cut little squares of tissue paper, wrap them around the end of a pencil, stick the tip in a little glue, and afix it to the paper):

Stitched for grandparents (grandparents, your Valentine's are late! But at least you get to see what's on its way to you...) Tsia's very first embroidery, with almost no help from me:

Given to Tsia:

I think she was a bit disappointed there wasn't a surprise wrapped inside her quilt:

and given to Todd (or at least one like this--these are actually my little birthday cakes from the other day):

We hope your day is filled with hearts!
