On the bright side

I've been having some issues with my left foot lately. At first it was just kind of a whimpering now and then but has been becoming more frequent. Last week while at my parents my dad asked if I wanted to walk around the block - I didn't know he meant a two mile block! I didn't have my regular walking shoes (I just wear them to the gym because they have a big hole in the toe) By the time we got back that whimpering had turned into an all out tantrum.  I could barely put my foot on the ground. I had on sneakers but they really aren't good walking shoes. I have an appointment with the foot doctor tomorrow, but in the meantime I ordered me a new pair of walking shoes!

Not a lot of stitching going on around here but I will be sittin and stitchin this afternoon! I'm going to ignore the stack of papers that need to be shredded and the one that needs to be filed and just stitch!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

I don't have  a lot of Valentine decor but I thought I would show you what I have

Just a few little hearts in glass jars

Some rag balls. If you look in the mirror you can see the balls hanging between the kitchen and breakfast room. The were actually Christmas ornaments that I bought on sale several years ago but they are white and red with hearts on them so I use them for Valentines instead

I finished the (Lizzie Kate - from 2005, I don't exactly get in a hurry sometimes) February stamp just in time to put it in a frame
This is the wall that angles beside the cabinet and is where the rest of my Valentine stuff is. Told you I didn't have much. 

I'm stitching on the March stamp now - I would like to get them all done this year which would be no problem if I didn't have other things that I need to get done. (I've already signed up for one ornament exchange for this year)

Oh well, if they get done, great, if not, there is always next year!
