Valentine's Day around here was fun!
First of all, I made cookies and I took them to work. These cookies are a family recipe that I thought was lost years ago when my Aunt Rody passed away. Fortunately, another aunt had it and gave it to me -- these cookies are awesome and disappear quickly whenever I take them to work.
I made three sizes so people could take whichever size suited their appetite (the big ones went first):
In the afternoon, I got to hand out everyone's valentine mailboxes -- they were all really full and people seemed super-happy to get them. There was a very nice happy feeling all afternoon after everyone shared the love. Awww.
Check it out -- here's mine:
And when I got home, Bill gave me a gift! I didn't even expect one, so that was a fun surprise! And you know what it was? It was that awesome tote bag I wanted made from a recycled sail! It's perfect -- I carried it today and I love it! It's really well made and has pockets inside. So nice!
This weekend, I hope to finish the tote bag I'm making for my friend. It's so different from both the pattern and fabric I originally showed you -- you won't even recognize it.
