Balentimes..........................



"It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere."    ---Agnes Repplier.



One of the things I remember best about grade school was getting a shoebox and decorating it for Valentines Day......then getting red construction paper and lace doilies to make  "Balentimes" to give to all our friends..............

 .....and today I am still making and receiving "Balentimes"....
last week I showed you the lovely Valentine Mug Rug I received from my swap partner, Sunny, and now that she has received the one I sent to her I will show you.................


 And here is my first project made with my new embroidery machine...............



 I am having fun.................and I am headed back upstairs to play some more so Ta-Ta for now..........................

What a cute mug rug, and cool embroidery.. I'll bet that's a fun machine! Your post made me think of last Valentine's when my son wrote "Hapy Valntimes Day Momee" on his chalk board. :) I hope his class decorates something for Balentimes to go in, like we used to! :)

I love Valentine's Day and everything about it! I'm sure it's partly because there is so much red and white involved. Your towels are extra special!!
