Remember the hubbub of not being able to find the kind of "old fashioned" Valentine book, I wanted? Well in the end, we did find one on-line, but as usual, I waited too long for that option to be of any use to me this year.
So I have been stewing about sending Valentines to the two sweet little girls who are now part of our family. I didn't want to send the usual type, I tried to make some cards, but I didn't like them at all, then I thought I would crochet some hearts - naw... that's cheesy...
Then I remembered a pattern I had made an angel bear with last year for Thomas. It's done in felt, and terribly cute.
Adapt it to a Valentine Bear! Brilliant!
I love the cute little bear that I ended up with. I decorated a couple of envelopes and now the Valentine Day drama is over!
I am sure you are are so relieved to hear it!
I am going to pop these in the mail today, and hopefully the girls will love them!
Now I have to get back to finishing the baby blanket for a new baby who should be arriving this month. I have almost finished knitting all the squares, and then I just have to put them together and that project will be finished too.
Guess I should start thinking about Easter now, so I don't run into the same quandary as I did for Valentine's Day!
