She had a fantastic time! Of course she wasn't keen to be photographed when she got home - "Mum, I'm a mess now. I've been dancing for hours!"...but she smiled anyhow and let me snatch one photo.
After a good sleep she was excited to see that I was making her all-time favourite treat, Cinnamon Scrolls, for our Valentines Day morning and afternoon teas. Here they are almost risen and ready to bake...
...and here are the gorgeous pillows of strawberry iced scrolls before they were gobbled up!
I gave Mr Elefantz a box of Cadbury's Roses chocolates and he kindly shared them with me. :-) It's been ages since I had chocolate...mmmm, they were yummy!
This week I finished another new Dilly Dally Daisy design...
It definitely has a romantic air to it, don't you agree? It seemed fitting to finish it on Valentines Day.
How to display it has been holding me back from the final stitches lately...a wallhanging? A bag? Diary cover? I couldn't decide so it has been sitting for weeks now needing just a few green flower stems to be stitched, and all because I couldn't decide it's final home.
Today I knew...
The pattern is yet to be written up, but perhaps later next week.
I have more wonderful projects from gifted ladies who have used my designs in different ways.
..and Maribel made this lovely bag for her daughter using the *inspire*, *believe*, and *roses* blocks from Shabby Roses!
I pray your Valentines Day was one of joy at being with those you love.
