I'm going to tell you two things:
1. I'm of the mindset that Valentine's Day is a silly Hallmark holiday.
2. I don't care and totally love it.
Now that we are clear on that...I have some good news, and some bad news. (I guess that makes a total of four things I needed to tell you)
I like going with the bad first so:
1. Production of the new pattern is on hold because I broke the computer that I make the patterns on! My husband is a genius at that sort of thing though, so once he spends his entire weekend off of work fixing my mistakes, I should be back in business. I'm thinking the pattern will be out early next week.
2. I have some new shop items! Since I can't draft, I can sew-right?!
I really wanted to use up some pink beads I've had in the stash for a long time and thought some Valentine sugar cookies would be nice.
And they couldn't just go on an ivory cake stand, noooo, a pink one! I almost put hearts on it-almost-but I love the simple detail of the design and the hearts were just too much for me. Don't they look so sweet?
While I was baking, I made up some jam thumb print cookies and regular iced heart cookies.
And then, I still wasn't done so I made some yummy heart-shaped pancakes with whipped cream, fresh berries and strawberry syrup. Yum! I think I will have to make some real ones for myself this weekend!
