Tuesday's Treasure with Melody and A New Little Book & Valentine's Winners.

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone in my time zone and early wishes to those of you who are not.
The beautiful graphic above is from Mo at Rose Petals from Heaven.
How lovely that Tuesday's Treasures falls on a day that represents love and affection as it is what we all feel for our gorgeous hostess MELODY. Why don't you visit her wonderful blog and see what treasure abounds.
My treasure today is 2 little 'furry' girls from my Cherished Teddies collection themed for Valentine's Day. I loved them the minute I saw them way back in 1993 & 1995. They have between them a little stitchery heart that I bought at a craft fair many years ago. I don't know who the stitcher was but it is such a sweet and simple little thing and I treasure it. It has hung on a cupboard door handle where I see it everyday for a very long time and still reminds me more often than not 'simple' is beautiful. My two sweet girls are sitting on a beautiful milk jug covered crocheted by the very talented Marina from Maisie and the boys. I treasure this as it was a "just because I liked it" gift sent to me from Marina. I do use it for what it was intended but with it's lovely heart design I just had to share it again.
I have finally finished another little book of stitchery drawings as everyone seemed to love "Christmas Fixin's". This little one has drawings you can use to stitch for friends or loved ones when you want to express that special little sentiment or add to another gift. I have loved doing it and I hope you will enjoy it too.
As it is Valentine's Day I have decided to add the little book to my giveaway and also to giveaway an extra copy.
"Stitchery Keepsakes" $14.00 Aus. Paypal excepted. Email me to secure a copy.
Well I suppose you would like to know who the winners are:
The winner of the Valentine's day giveaway is Jeanette from Jeanette's Place.
The winner of the extra little "Keepsakes" book is Marcia from Daisy Jane.
Congratulations to you both and I hope you enjoy your little gifts. Thank you everyone for continuing to play along with me and participating in my little giveaways.
"If you think there is no 'one' special person in your life you are's you."
To my Valentine. You know who you are...............
Blessings Michelle xx
