Be My Valentine Pincushion

I want to wish all my friends the happiest of Valentine's Day!  I finished my little heart pincushion by Brenda Gervais but I ran out of time to finish the little heart box that goes with it.  I do wish I didn't have to sleep, eat or go to the bathroom because I could get so much more finished.  LOL  For those who haven't seen these new M&M's in the store they are cherry chocolate.  Needless to say I bought several bags to keep in the freezer for emergencies.  You never know when you might wake in the middle of the night and have chocolate withdrawal and need a quick fix.  This happens quite often to me as my waistline shows.
I had the little JAB stick pin with the birdhouse on it and I think it's perfect.  Well back to the Victoria Sampler Ort Bag for Rhonda.  I'm working on the second side but I really didn't get much accomplished today.  Vallie decided this was going to be her "needy" day and want to sit in my lap every time I sat down.  Bless her little heart...............sigh
Blessings as always,
Barbara

The pincushion is lovely! I'm very acquainted with your M&M problem. Often the peanut version speaks to me!

M&M's are definitely dangerous during the holidays - Beware - lol

I love those M&M's. The raspberry ones are pretty good, too. Great little finish.

Thoeria said...

That is just so cute - where do you find the time to finish all these lovelies! I love M&Ms - but we only get the normal ones out here so no cherry or nothing! I'd have a problem keeping them in the house though - my body knows when there's chocolate within a metre of the house and then I get a craving :) So the emergency supplies would be gone before you know it!

Such a sweet finish and the birdhouse sets it off lovely. Great idea on the m + m's for an instant quick fix, have noted that down lol.
I to hate when mundane chores get in the way of stitching ;)

Chocolate cherry M & Ms?? Oh my, I'll have to look for them next time I'm in the grocery store. My problem is I can't stop with just a few :)

Pretty pinkeep Barbara! I saw this on Brenda's blog and thought it was gorgeous. You've done a lovely job on the finishing.
Hmmmm, chocolate cherry M&Ms? I don't think we have those yet in Canada. They sound delectable!
