As my friend, Anne, is usually here for half of a day--
but she could not come today as there was a work crew at her house insulating it!!
She did "pop-in" around 11 am with this--
a pretty card and a bar of my 'favorite' chocolate!!

so I made the 11:30 bus today to go to Walmart for some groceries--
and my goodness--the flowers, roses, and heart shaped boxes of chocolates were just flying out the door--there must be alot of happy females in town tonight!!!!!!!!!!!

In the mail I did get a lovely handmade card today--
So now I have an angel to watch over me when I am here on the computer!
Thanks, Caroline!

And that Miss Gracie--
she had the whip out today--
this morning I was working on the February words counted cross stitch and she had a 'fit'--
so I had to leave it and go to the sewing room--
(she knows where I am suppose to be--must be!!!!)
and then she made me get off the computer at noon time the same way---

Soooo here is what I got done in there today--
Lots of 2 inch half square triangles for the 'broken dishes' doll quilt for this month--
now to lay them out and decide how to sew them together again!!!!
one block is done for this months Schnibbles!!!
Just 8 more to go!!!!!!!!!
when -- when these are all sewed back together they only make a 6 1/2 inch square!!
so again I am working with 2 and 2 1/2 inch blocks--ouch!!!!
And I did finally get the cross stitch done--
Now I just have to finish it off like I did the January word one!!!

After the nap--and Miss Gracie kept napping--
I came out and worked on these--
 Just have 3 more letters to stitch and I can sew this ufo together!!!
So I guess I had a productive day today--
and a sweet one--
Oh and I got the cutest email Valentine card from Harrington and Hannah--
(with a little help from there Mom, Shell--)
so all in all today--I feel loved--
thanks to all you blog readers out there around the world--
and I hope that you all know that I 'love' each and every one of you!!!
Happy Valentines day to you all--
Hugs, Di and Miss Gracie
