Happy Valentine's Day

The real Love Story was in my post on Sunday about Harry and Mimi. If you missed it you'll be glad you went back to catch it now. My Darling Husband left me this missive on our bathroom counter. Pretty sweet, huh? On Sunday I gathered the neckties that Henry had dumped on the floor, choose mostly all red ones to make the background for this my 8th Journal Quilt of the year.
A pink tie woven through the other narrow ends of red ties with free motion sewn hearts added
and a spiffy silk (really polyester) handkerchief in the pink fat end of a tie pocket balanced it out making a "Love Connection" on Valentine's Day.
Yes, Lisa, Threader, Bee and Cris, you all guessed right! These are the roots of my yam plant after sitting in a glass cup for a few weeks.
The whole thing blooming beautifully!
again, Happy Valentine's Day!
How will you show love to other's and yourself today? (and of course we do this every day, not just today!) PS
another loving thing.
I learned yesterday that our cooking grandbaby
2nd trimester pregnancy
baby! ♥♥♥
