We had a wonderful Valentine’s Day here. I made a few simple gifts for the family, mostly so that I could enjoy some crafting time. For Ruby, I embroidered this shirt. I got the pattern from the Stitch-It Kit which I like a bunch. I hope Smartypants doesn’t see this though…she is a master embroiderer. Anyway, when Ruby saw it, she said, “Shirt” and put it on right over her p.j.s. What a great gift receiver she is! Actually, she just loves the fact that she can almost dress herself.
I made John this little bowl for him to take to his office and catch all his little thing: keys, ipod, wallet, etc. I used a pattern from One Skein that I checked out from the library. I filled it up with some treats for him like some yummy oolong tea, a chocolate covered pretzel, and some bar shaving soap that he likes.
And then, on V-day, I made these little napkins for us. Ruby sometimes likes to have a napkin on her lap too, which cracks me up. I like the little polka-dot fabric.
I also made some chocolate crescent cookies for John and I to enjoy. They practically melt in your mouth, but they don’t photograph well. I got that recipe from ChocolateChocolate.
