  1. What a LOVEly post! You have some wonderful love tokens and pretty quilts to remember your journey of love! My favorite would be the little fabric envelope on the back of your first ever quilt you quilted yourself (20 years ago!) Happy Valentines Day, Elizabeth!

  2. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your best valentine, Elizabeth. I love the label you made for your Twisted Threads quilt. You are always so creative — a real inspiration. Hope you are recovering well from your surgery and that you are back to heavy duty stitching (or, I should say, medium duty, which is probably wiser. Are you still getting lots of rain and lovely garden things?

  3. Elizabeth, what a great post! You never disappoint! The word quilt is especially nice – what a treat to read this…Happy Valentine’s Day!

  4. I have always always wanted to make the Hearts in the Pines quilt. I have had the pattern forever. And your spelling bee quilt is going to be so great!
