The above courtesy of my favorite thing on the internet, Teen Girl Squad, episode 12, I think. It’s basically the best thing ever.

So today is Valentine’s Day! Happy Valentine’s Day! Not that I need a special commercialized holiday to celebrate my love for my SO, but I did anyway, in the form of presents! I posted a teaser a couple days ago, and here’s the finished embroidery piece:

It’s stretched around some cardboard, framed, and everything. I think it came out super well and my boyfriend loved it. : ) The quote is from a They Might Be Giants song called “Birdhouse” and it’s completely adorable, and you should listen to it:

CUTE. Here’s a close up of my bird:

I also made Joe a pretty pretty card:

It’s frilly and lacy cause that’s what I like, damn it!

Joe wrote me a jazz ballad for Valentine’s Day, cause he does that, and it’s wonderful and romantic and pretty. It also uses rhythms and melodies from the Valentine’s Teen Girl Squad, which I linked above (and you should have watched already, but I’ll wait while you do so now) and I wish I could share it with you, but I can’t. But know that it’s great. : )

So yes. Happy Valentine’s Day! Go forth and say lovely things to people you love.

Sorry I’ve been rather quiet on the blog front recently. I’m still working on the red socks from the last post (except now they’re just twisted rib socks because I apparently can’t read directions). I’m also making shark mittens. Nothing that fascinating.

I did recently finish a thing, but I can’t show you yet because it’s a Valentine’s gift for my boyfriend and it’s meant to be a surprise and he reads my blog sometimes. I can, however, show you a couple teaser pics cause he knows the general category of thing that it is. I’m super proud of it, but more on that after the 14th.
