~*Another Valentine to Share*~

Patti sent me an email yesterday to share another Valentine ditty! Lookie Lookie Lookie! Another fabulous finish indeed! Patti offers her wares on TDIPT Mercantile. This will be one of her offerings at the next update ~ February 1st. Be sure to swing by if you are interested.

Thank you, Patti, for stitching & sharing. I love how you add the olde key! AWESOME!

An update on my crafting day... well, it didn't go exactly as planned. I had a catastrophe with my refrigerator that required immediate attention! It felt like a major horror at the time! I had put a bag of chicken legs in the fridge to thaw... stupidly thinking the bag would not leak ~ it was sitting safely with the opening upwards. Well, the chicken thawed... but somehow escaped the bag. I had a mess of... well, I'll just call it chicken juice so as not to gross you out too much... all over! I was so worried this would make us sick... with all the news about salmonella poisoning lately. Cleaning the refrigerator has been on my To Do list for a long time & really did need to be done anyway... just not on my day of crafting! Aggravated, stressed, and just plain irritated as I was... I managed to clean the big ol' box. Amazingly it looks like new again! Yipee! BUT... crafting didn't get started until later in the evening. How did the fridge take the whole day away from crafting? Arrrggggghhhhh.... maybe today.

Many warm smiles to you....



  1. Betty,
    Her pinkeep came out fantastic. Oh, too bad about the chicken, what a mess. I don't like unexpected surprises like that, especially when I'm all ready to craft.


  2. Love the Valaentine ditty, the added key is awesome! Don't ya hate when things happen in the middle of your plans, and you never get back on track. Glad yu were able to get that chicken under control though, lol.
    Have a Great Day! Hugs, Bren

  3. Thanks for the kind words Betty! So sorry to hear that you had to spend precious crafting time cleaning... Hope that today you have time for fun!

  6. Love the pinkeep and so sorry about the frig least it's done now:)

  7. Love the pinkeep. I saw some keys today, was a bunch for 12 dollars, so good deal, but they were silver colored, so wasn't sure if they were the right ones.

    What a mess, I don't blame you for cleaning good, that is nothing to mess with.


  8. Hey Betty,
    Do you sell any kits...punch neddle or rug hooking for beginers! LOL!
    I love all your work!

  9. Beth... I don't have the supplies to offer up any kits. Sorry sweetie.

    :) Betty

  10. Betty, Have to tell you how much I enjoy seeing how people are finishing up your designs! Please keep sharing and designing! I treated my fridge to a thorough cleaning last week..inside and out, under and on did take a long time!!!

  11. Betty,
