A Valentine Day Homestead sampler

Tomorrow will be a long day. So, for the weekend I let my dancing thoughts of Valentines's get into some positive energy if you still would like to add to your Valentine stash. If you happen to think it's stitch worthy and would like to stitch it, you many substitute your  own sweetheart's inital. I had Body Guard doing a jig in the design and pansies were growing like crazy around our Valentine House.

Valentine's Day is so commercialized now that the true meaning gets lost, either some over do it (like I used to), or some forget it ( let's hope not), but either way if you celebrate in conservative ways and would like to frame a 5 x 7 meaning of what Valentines means to the Dalenbergs, then here's a little freebie to tuck away.

No relationship is perfect and really our goal in life is for every day to be Valentine's Day around the homestead. If you don't know what that means then get your Bibles and turn to 1 Corinthians 13 and keep it in your heart all year through. This is real love. Celebrate often. You don't need expensive Valentine dinners or plans, just love and respect.
Today I so happen to turn on the TV for another program and they were talking about love and respect. It's amazing how different men and women are wired.
I fail myself sometimes but I really do try to be a good Valentine's Day partner.

CC Tennessee Red Clay

This would be cute framed in a foyer or in your bedroom.

It should stich out well in a 5 x 7 frame.

If you by chance do stitch it and would like to share it with me, just send me an email and I'll put it on the blog. I would love to see what you do with it.

These freebies will be here for a short while so get them while you can.
One day, I promise, to stitch these up so that you will see a model pic.

Right now, I'm stitching on a patriotic piece. I'll show more progress tomorrow........tomorrow is another day.........Fiddle D D.
