Surely we have plenty to celebrate this month. I think the four I will celebrate the most are:
National Cherry month - I'll eat a lot of cherries...cherry ice cream, cherry coke, cherry cupcakes. I know I can think of other ways as the month goes by.
National Embroidery Month - I'll cross stitch something this month and I'm working on my red snowmen embroidered quilt top.
National Snack Food Month - enough said!
National Wild Bird Feeding Month - I just bought a 30lb bag of bird seed. I'm ready!
I put up my February decoration that are of course Valentine's decorations. These pictures are not very good, it's been so cloudy and my interior light is just not good for photos.
This was the first small quilt I made to hang on my door. I went to a free demonstration on how to make the hearts with Log Cabin blocks.
This small quilt hangs on the inside of the front door. It's a Bargello pattern. I took a class at a local quilt store and made this one.
My garden flag. How appropriate, since this is National Wild Bird Feeding Month!
My cross stitched four-letter word pillow LOVE with hearts, flowers, and envelope buttons!
Just a couple of my Boyd's Bear figurines. My son gave me the one on the left and my husband gave me the snow globe.
This beautiful pottery heart has a special meaning. We made a trip to the city where my Father was born and raised. We were able to see the house that he was born in and visit with the couple who now own it. They have a pottery shop beside the house. This is one of their pieces.

a basket full of hearts
and Wellington. My daughter gave me this bear several years ago. He loves to dress for the season! I wonder who the flowers and candy are for!
Love is in the air!! Are you ready for February!
