~ Happy Valentine's Day ~

 I know I should be thinking about hearts, flowers and love ~
being St. Valentine's Day and all.
so I will try.

but my thoughts keep being derailed to.....
getting back to my embroidery!!!!

so I'll combine the two ~

ah, yes, love....
{of needle and thread}

the sweet sentiments of flowers...
{and satin stitches}

 the allure and coyness of innocence ~
{and embellishment}

 head-over-heals in LOVE!
{just can't get enough}

I'm blessed to be married to my soulmate ~
whom I believe is the only one on this planet that 'gets' me
and my need to consistently create something...
{he kinda is the same way, so....}

and he knows I love him.

So whilst my head may be full of threads,
 there is plenty of room in my heart for him.

"Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, 
when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; 
especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts 
~ than while so occupied."
~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859

this is my brain on thread.....


Blessings from the Farm
