I am planning to make a little memory quilt from these lovely little squares. Once I've joined them up nicely, I will add some embroidery, decorative stitching, embellishments, and a few other surprises...which no doubt will come to me as I work on it...I hope!
I feel a little lost this year, as I normally do something special around Valentine's day, but the time and the inclination just failed to find me this February! Hubby had to work, and the kidlets and I had a quiet night in in front of the box. The UK weather has surpassed it's soggy reputation this winter too, and the general mood at home has been equally damp because of it! So, what does one do in the middle of a windswept, cold, sodden winter? One has an ice cream party of course! That's what we did, by candle light, in protest of the weather!
It cheered us up no end! I think it also has something to do with the fact that I'm longing for summer to burst through the door with warmth and lazy, hazy happy days! But, for now, I'll leave you all with a few tempting ideas to host your very own ice-cream party...even if the summer is still a little way off...

|Pretty paper cups|
|Print your own pretty labels|
|It's a wrap!|
|Wine glasses and silver spoons|
Roll on summer!
