February 1st, 1956......Whitesboro Elementary School......Whitesboro, Texas
Good Morning Third Graders! Gooood Morning Mrs.Alexander!
Who knows what special event we celebrate in February?
Ohhhhhh!!! MeMe!!! OK, Sue!
"My Mama's Birthday"!!!!
How nice that your Mama has a Birthday so close to another special day! Anyone know what day that might be?
Ohhhhhhh!!! MeMe!!! OK, Sue!
It's the day we get to take an old shoe box and decorate it with that wrinkled paper, red glitter, pink kleenex flowers, hearts and what ever else I can find in Mama's sewing box....and we get to go to Wackers and buy Valentines for our friends....and we get to have a School Party with cupcakes and pink punch.....and Mama said she'd make heart shaped cookies for the party!
It's February 14th....Valentines Day!!!
And you know what Mrs. Alexander? What Sue?
The Number 14 is my Lucky Number!
LOVE to make Valentine Boxes.
A few things have changed over the years.
One is the shoe box has changed to an Embroidery Hoop and glitter to Embroidery Thread.
The one thing that has always stayed the same is the 'Sewing Box'. But now rather than Mama's it's Sue's Sewing Boxes!
So, from the box of MisStitched Embroidery Designs comes the embroidered Heart. From the Button Boxes...Buttons! From the Lace and Trim Boxes....that stuff. And from the Box of Tools....The GlueGun!
Yep! It's a NoSew Valentine!
~The MisStitched Heart~
This is the result of flipping the hoop and not getting the second half of the pattern aligned with the first half. It is a built-in embroidery design in the Janome 10000 using the GigaHoop.
So, it went in the 'MisStitched' Box with all the others for use in a ..... Someday I'll Use It Project!
Someday is Today...Pink Saturday and Valentines Day.
I've pointed out the problem areas......
.....and how, with the aid of 'Sue's Many Sewing Boxes' and the Magic of a Glue Gun,
Box Hoop to Hang is Created.
And now it is time to see the Pink Creations from the
Pink Saturday List over at
