5 Things You Didn't Know About Valentine's Day

    1. St. Valentine Wasn't Just One Person
    2. Valentine's Day Became an Official Holiday in the 1300s
    3. Cupid Has Its Roots in Greek and Roman Mythology
    4. Americans Send 145 Million Valentine's Day Cards Each Year
    5. Nearly 6 Million Couples Get Engaged On Valentine's Day
If you didn't send a card I probably have you covered.  I love sending cards.  They must have a cat on them of course to make them "sendable" from me =^.^=   I really looked hard for a 1st Valentine's card for Greyson, but no luck.  It was a big disappointment for me.  Perhaps if I'd been able to get to all the stores where the cat cards are in abundance it would have been there for me or should I say Greyson.
This past week I finished all three of my planned Valentine's projects.  I was very excited this could happen.  All three are in need of Kerry's Quilting touch.  Each will be ready for future Valentine's Days.
Stitches from the Heart (yet to be named) by Fat Quarter Shop (this one was completed last week)

Kupid's Kisses, Crazy Hearts by Karla Alexander of Cut Loose Press

Cupid's Bow (yet to be named) by Fat Quarter Shop

More of my online shopping arrived that allowed my third project to finish.  This is the back, background, and binding fabrics.  The pattern designer was pretty gracious with fabric requirements.  I almost have enough for a second project. 

I'm not sure how long it will take me to get back in the black.  I was good this week and only ordered one FQ bundle of solid pinks from Fat Quarter Shop.  Crazy Hearts project depleted all this particular shade of pinks.

My shopping arrivals this week included a fabric kit for Little 4 Patch.  

Kellie Willey of Little Quilt Creations was Sunshine Quilt Guild's guest speaker on Tuesday.  She was really great.  All things miniature.  The Mice Fabric Kit was too cute to pass up.  Kellie does have an online course that you might want to check out on the making of her miniature project.  I also purchased two of her "must have products for miniatures".  The first by Acorn - Easy Precision Piecing Starter Kit and Schmetz 70/10 machine sewing needles.  The needles arrived yesterday and the Acorn product is on its way from Stitchin' Heaven.

No other fabrics arrived, but they have all shipped and should be arriving this week.  I need a BIG project to help get out of the red.

So for my stash report this week all stats change...  Tomorrow I'll be sharing my It's A Mystery project.  Come back and check it out.

Greyson is trying so hard to be self contained and not let out a big " Please send a card" adorable.Love all the fabric goodies that have arrived. we are not in a severe lockdown here, Auckland has a higher level, but even so I did shop locally for a metre of patterned white as a background for some more Daddy Hex applique motifs.
