Some More Valentine Finishes.

I finished all the Valentine projects for this February. I,actually, finished this piece last February but didn't frame it until this week. This is a BBD piece. I had the frame in my stash. That always makes me happy. You can click on any of the pictures for a larger view.
I did a small SB design for my small black box. So cute.
Cheryl and I had a finishing day. I did these 3 designs very simply. I didn't think they needed much.
The February Word Play finished like my others.
I will end this post of a picture of my favorite flowers. I was thrilled to see them in the Whole Foods last week.
Stella and I went to obedience school today and she did okay. She learned to sit pretty well but didn't master the laying down. Hopefully we will practice this week and surprise her teacher next week. She did interact with the other dogs and people, which was good. I did receive some things in the mail that I will post next time. Have a great week. Go Pats! Happy Stitching....Deborah

The down command is a hard one for a puppy to learn. Well dine to Stella for learning to sit.

All your stitching is beautiful especially the BBD.

Such pretty finishes, Deborah! I hope to get started on that Valentine Quaker this week--it's such a nice design...

I'm sure little Stella will improve her "laying down" skills with practice :)

Chris said...

Beautiful finishes Deborah!

Susan said...

Beautiful finishes. I think I need to head to Whole Foods for some flowers - it's dark and dreary here today and those daffodils would do the trick to brighten things up.

Janice Boucher said...

Love the 3 little Valentine finishes. How do you plan to display them?
Congrats to Stella and her obedience training. She is doing great! It will take time. Benji, my rescue dog has the "sit" down but the "down"...hmmm he needs some practice on that one. He is more anxious to get going than resting.

Beth Pearce said...

I love your Stitcherhood Valentine pieces as well as your BBD! I really like your Word Play ones as well. I keep thinking about those....

Pumpkin said...

Another beautifully framed piece Deborah :o)

Love all your finishes and just in time for the 14th!

Glad to hear that Stella did well at her first class. Remember, she's just a puppy! LOL!

Laurie in Iowa said...

All your Valentine finishes look wonderful. I really like the simple way you finished the pillows.

Sherry :o) said...

Stella is really cute! Your Valentine stitching is awesome...I don't have much in the way of valentine things done. Come to think of it, I have two pillows (sew, not stitch) for my bench but they have not made an appearance yet...better get them out!

Deanne J said...

Beautiful stitching. I love daffodils too but it will be at least 2 months before we see any around here.

Ranae said...

Great finishes for you! They are lovely.

Kathy Ellen said...

Every time I visit, Deborah, I am amazed at all of your beautiful creations and wonderful finishing. Those three little Valentine designs are just so sweet....love them. Daffodils are one of the 'happiest' flowers I can think of, because they just brighten up a room!

Gorgeous finishes! Has anyone told you that you're a serious enabler, lol?! I just ordered Endless Hearts after seeing your finish and now I'm seriously considering the wordplays.
I finally have my Quaker Valentines finished up but I haven't had time to post yet. Next week I'll have a pic.

Suzanne said...
