Unconventional Valentine's

In honor of St. Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share a pic of one of my oldies but goodies, stitched many years ago for my sweet hubby...

Better Homes and Gardens
America's Best Cross Stitch

This piece was originally charted to be a sampler but I substituted the Japanese verse for the alphabet and it became an unconventional love letter to the hubs.  If memory serves me correct, I gave it to him just before we were to move into the house we built together out in the woods.  It represents the country setting of our place perfectly.

To this day, I feel the same.  We all need very little.  But to love and be loved, there is nothing better.  I'll close by wishing each of you a heart full of love this St. Valentine's day.
