I hope everyone survived Valentine's Day. I spent a very non-romantic (but still lovely) afternoon in the warm sunshine with my sister and her two munchkins (my hubby had to work). I had forgotten how fun it is to run and play with complete abandon... It was definitely the highlight of an otherwise crummy week. I've had a terrible case of feeling-under-the-weather-blues the last several days, but I think I'll survive!
I shouldn't say the whole week was crummy, because I got to help a certain someone celebrate her 25th birthday! I made this little embroidery piece for the special occasion:
I think it was a hit. I had to fight myself to keep it simple, and in the end I felt so liberated! I am definitely planning to make some more simple embroideries in the near future.
Speaking of making things... I still have a stack of future-softies sitting in my studio. I have the whole day off, and I'm planning to spend every moment I can sewing. The softies have been selling the second I list them in the shop, so I might schedule a planned and previously-announced ____(insert word for " shop update"). I kinda hate to jump on the update bandwagon, but the softies are in such great demand! I will make some sort of announcement once I figure out all the details (and an alternate way to phrase "shop update"). I wish I could promise all sorts of wonderful things like all the disciplined, productive ladies out there who have proper (frequent) updates, but I think we all know that's not going to happen! Let's hope for 2 or 3 new softies, and maybe an embroidery. Maybe.
Well, all that felt isn't going to sew itself... I guess I better get crackin'. Enjoy your Monday!

p.s. A very heartfelt thanks to Lori Marie for giving me a "make my day award" last week... Likewise, I'm sure! I think I'm supposed to pass it on to others, so I hereby award each and every one of you who read my blog and send me so many nice comments! You all make my day!
