Gifts of Love

I love February!  It’s the month of love, it’s a short month and it usually is a transition from winter to spring .  Sometime in this month we will get a super warm day, it will appear from no where but it will send the message that warmer day’s are ahead.

It is the month we share love with each other.  Sending flowers, cards and little gifts not because we have to but because we want to. Even the kids get involved sharing hearts and candies at their school parties. 

How we cherish those little gifts given us by friends, gifts that we use daily and therefore keep our friends close by. I always have Jerry close by as she was so sweet making and sending this heart pincushion.  Karen’s little pouch she made for me to hold my special little tools and extra needles.   That is kept in my sewing tote and I really don’t know now what I would do without it.

I always have made something special for Zoe to wear to her school party.  Last year I didn’t  make anything  thinking maybe she had outgrown having a special something.  I was so wrong!!  A few day’s before her school party she asked me where her valentine outfit was and I had to hurry and get something done for her. Lesson learned—this year the outfit is done and ready for delivery.

2011_0205stuff0005 My special gifts from friends. These mean so very much to me and I send a big thank you for thinking of me.



Top for party day at school.  The kids have a motto when it comes to clothes.  They say “One of a kind” it makes them feel special to have something that is truly one of a kind.


This top would also work for valentines day or any day. I know, I have to fix the straps as they are to long, but this gives me a starting point.

so share some love it will be a gift that will last a lifetime.
