Fully Finished Gallery - February 2024 🖼

I really didn't get to much finishing this time.
Two kitties have been keeping me out of my craft room because they aren't allowed in there and cry when they can't come in!

Sadly, this is all I have.
I'm not quite sure if it will stay in this frame or if I'll be changing it out monthly.

Culprit #1, Maverick - Likes playing with my floss and too cute to leave alone.

Culprit #2, Mia - Also too cute to leave alone!

Be sure to take a look and see what others have finished too.
And next month will be much better!

A Weekend Getaway in February 🍻

In early February, DH and I were invited to a wedding for my BFF's son. He thought we should make a weekend of it, what a nice surprise! So we went to Lititz, PA, on Friday to spend the night before the wedding in Lancaster, PA.
It was the perfect little town, we were able to walk everywhere! Our first stop was at Bulls Head Public House for a drink (Shandy for me) and lunch.

From there we went antique shopping, DH's favourite... not! I did see this sweet piece in one of the shops.

Oh look, another bar! Too bad this one wasn't actually available, but I liked the sign. The locals were all so nice and friendly, and we ending up at the hotel bar with some of them that we had met earlier at another bar.

We stopped in at the Wilbur Chocolate shop since it was right across the street from the hotel, how could we not?
We hadn't heard of this chocolate before, but they have something similar to a Hershey's Kiss, it's called a Wilbur Bud. It's a little harder than a kiss and not as sweet. We liked it enough to get some! I also found some dark chocolate orange truffles, so that was a must. And the hotel left a little pouch of them in our room, nice.

It was chilly that night, maybe my hand was shaking and that's why it's blurry? Because I really didn't have "that" much to drink!

On the way to the hotel for the wedding the next day, my treat was stopping in at Stitches Unlimited, which I have been to a few times before.

Here's the happy couple coming into the reception after the ceremony.

T and I, we've been BFF's since 1st grade. My mother used to call us the terrible twins when we would have a spat.

A fun photo with her sister, and their cousin joining us whether we liked it or not!

It's always fun getting together with these two.

Oops, we almost forgot to take a photo together.

My purchases from Stitches Unlimited was approved by Maverick. I really didn't need anything, but of course wanted to support the shop!

It was a great weekend away together and we are trying to make plans with friends to stay in Lititz in the future since we had such fun there!

The next week I had my yearly mammogram and thought I deserved a visit to the thrift shop afterwards. I found a few treats.
I might be stopping by there again tomorrow since I'll be in the area, who knows what I might find?

What kids really think of Valentine's Day...

"It's like where it's basically you give people cards, and it's "be nice to everybody" day. Like if you see a stranger on the street, you can say, 'Hi.'" — Aki, 7

"It's also known as St. Chocolat Day." — Gabriela, 12

Saying hi and having chocolate? Yes, please!
And remember, smiles are free ~ share some today. 🥰

Thank you, Jo. For another year of sharing our love of stitching with each other. 🪡❤️
