I love romance and all that is good and lovely in the world, but I commiserate with those who find Valentine's Day depressing and manufactured. Sometimes you want a little tart to the sweet, you know?
A few years back, my two youngest were into drawing monsters, and made a collection of their drawings. Actually - they're still doing them and I think they're AWESOME!! I keep them all. I love the artistry of Tim Burton and like to think I've passed my affection down : ).
So today I am posting some embroidery work I did in 08 of some of their work. I am making a monster quilt. I tried to stay true to colours they drew with, and in the case of pencil drawings I asked them what colours they envisioned. These squares have been completed for over a year but since I don't know anything about sewing/quilting they've stayed in my closet. I have to get this project done!
Anyway Happy Love Day - whether it's romantic, platonic, or just lovin' planet earth - and all the magic and treasures that are here waiting for us if we just open our eyes.
