Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.
We've had the pleasure of this little monkeys company - he stayed for a sleep over. We enjoyed making some Valentine desserts for today's tea as little monkeys family are coming for Sunday roast this week. We also had fun playing with Plasticine and watching Logan's mums favourite film as a child - The Labyrinth.
Logan is making a Plasticine pizza.
On Friday evening I managed to complete February of the Joyful World SAL. Thankfully the frogs stayed away this time - having said that there are a couple of misplaced or miscounted stitches in this month but I had gone too far to put them right when I realised my errors. They're not major so I can live with them and it still looks good to me. The ducks beaks don't really show up in this photo but they do in real life.
I have printed out March's chart but I won't start that until the month of March.
I've also managed to add another couple of motifs to the baby sampler. With Logan monkey being with us and family coming down later in the day I will only get a short amount of time to spend on the Cornwall Cottage Sampler. Spending time with family is far more precious than stitching - just about LOL.
