Happy Valentine's Day!


I started the day off with some friends - we took a little field trip to Carnegie Natural History Museum in Pittsburgh.  We enjoyed a visit in the gems and minerals room, highlighted by the exhibit of Madeline Albright's pin collection.
The exhibit runs through March 4th and is a fascinating glimpse into the diplomatic world and the subtle ways that diplomats have of communicating.
After a few hours of relaxation, my Sweetie took me out to dinner at Red Lobster... for this....
  
and this....
  
and altho I didn't get a huge bouquet of flowers... I did enjoy browsing through the selection at 1800Flowers... and found this:
 
and I didn't even have to clear a space on the coffee table to display it!

I hope you all had a lovely, loving Valentine's Day as well.

Although I did not make a special Valentine's Quilt this year, I do have a sweet one that I made a couple of years ago that I still have a picture of...
