Valentine Swap Goodies

I received the most wonderful box in the mail yesterday......my swap that Parsley hosted recently. Here's what I got from Sheila B. from Sheila's Stitches n Stuff. She sent me all kinds of fantastic goodies.... I already found a place to hang this wood plate.....you will see in the very near future where I put it. tee hee~ you will just have to come back to find out where it went. LOL

Some much needed, oops, I mean wanted candy. ha ha
My very favorite scent.......... a cinnamon spice candle.
Pink heart socks and a magnetic memo pad.........

A LK Summer ABC's snippet graph........

And last but not least, the handmade item...........here's the back of it.......my very first Biscornu!
I tried taking lots of shots w/and w/out the flash, but couldn't get a good close-up. I want you to notice the SHEEP on each corner.......
The fabric is really a bit more light tan than it's showing.
Her stitching is perfection and I think she did a wonderful job on it!

Thanks again Sheila! I love everything you sent me and the Russell Stover's candy didn't last long ~ tee hee.

Still working on finishing up some more Val. things, so will be back again in a few days. Until then, stay warm and safe! Have a great weekend everyone!

Here's your quote for today ~ "Meeting a new friend is God's way of asking us to open our hearts a little wider, make a little more room to be thoughtful, and take a little more time to express His love."

What great swap goodies Tanya,
Beautiful stitching-love the little sheep:)

Enjoy your weekend-we have a house of sickness here from last weekend and no signs of a letup:(
You know what that means....no stitching:(
