I usually make a lot of Valentines and this year was no exception. I tend to put it off and then eventually I get started and then I can't stop. I like Valentines better than Christmas cards because there's not so much pressure to send them. Also it's sort of a dark, melancholy time of the year and when I make them I think about all the people I am going to send them to and it makes me happy. And they are really fun to make! Good old cut and paste.
I also embriodered some Valentine shirts for some friends and family. Didn't use a hoop, just have to be careful with the tension of the thread.
