St. Valentine's Day Review

I hope you had a great Valentine's Day. It ended up being a pretty good day for us.
Last week I received a awesome envelope full of fabric scraps from Bethany at Vermillion Rules. For her birthday she decided to do 31 Acts of Kindness and I was lucky enough to be the recipient of one of those acts.

I just had to use some of the fabric I made Valentine's gifts for the boys. I got the pattern for these adorable guys at The Long Thread.They were SO super easy. I added a pocket and their names on the back of each AND I finally learned how to do a slipstitch so you can't see the seams at all.

Nox thought his heart was super yummy.

Monkey Munch wasn't being a good I had to give him a good tickle.
I also made cookies...which WERE all hearts when I put them in the oven....
Didn't seem to turn out that way though. Hubby thinks the sprinkle ones...which were double hearts...look like butts. Oh well, they are still yummy. (Even if they aren't exactly on my diet.)

The stained glass cookies turned out great...which is all I really cared about.
You just put hard candy, like Jolly Ranchers in the center and bake. Pretty, right? I'm thinking about making some for St. Patty's.
