Marriage is the best thing in my life. When we openly and privately express our love for each other it only serves to strengthen our relationships. When I am actively thinking of ways to tell my husband how much I love him, it makes me love him more. I realize how happy he makes me and I appreciate everything about him. I see things and think, "How can I use that object to tell him I love him?" This makes me think of him all the time. It makes our marriage stronger and it makes us both happier.

Valentine Mobile

I have this mobile hanging inside the front door of my house. I like it there because I see it often and am reminded that it is Valentine season. It helps me remember to be a little kinder to the people I love. It sort of drives my poor husband crazy though, because he is much taller than me and he bumps his head on it all the time. Oh well, at least it is soft so it doesn't hurt. (and, no, he doesn't need to be hit in the head to be reminded that Valentine's day is coming up).
Using a quilting pen (with disappearing ink), I traced different sized hearts on a variety valentine fabrics. I then stitched on the line, leaving a small space unstitched so I could stuff the hearts. Then I cut around the hearts, using pinking shears. I stuffed the hearts with fiberfill stuffing and stitched the opening closed. I attached the hearts to grosgrain ribbon and attached the top of the ribbon to an embroidery hoop. Then I wrapped the embroidery hoop with grosgrain ribbon, attached some more ribbon to hang it with and hung it up.
