Happy Valentine's Day!

...and we have lots of snow but to Nick's disappointment, no Snow Day has been called for the schools. We have about 15 cm and another 10 cm is called for during the day. But from all the weather forecasts, it looks like we got off pretty good. And if this is the worst winter storm we get, its great! Of course I say that because I don't have to get out this morning and try to get into work!!

I scanned the Valentine's card that Carrie made for me and left on my desk this morning. Isn't she so sweet? And hubby left a card for me also. Presents to come later.... :-D
And here is an update on my Sampler Gameboard. This one is going along great, its fun and easy to pick up and throw in a few stitches here and there. Those little houses can get done so quickly. I'm doing this on Willow Green 32 ct linen, something I've had in my stash for a while and I liked how the floss colours popped off the fabric when I tried them.


Meanwhile, I've been sewing on my Row Houses quilt and I'm so happy to say my houses are finished. I've been sewing them together, into rows, and next I need to tackle the border.

I hope to get outside for a bit of shovelling. I don't do a lot, the driveway is too big for me, but I love getting out after a fresh snowfall....before the doggies have been out there and the salt trucks have been through!

Your Gameboard is looking fantastic, and you are right the colors just pop on the fabric! I sure wish you could send some snow down this way--I would love to have a snow day!

Happy Valentine's Day!
