In honor of Valentine's Day
(one of my favorite holidays dating back
to elementary school),
I am sharing a February Fancy Nancy Original
each day until the 14th.
I loved the shaded thread and the dainty button
on this very February-ish needlework!
The beginning of February always seems to mark
the turning point of winter with hints of warmth
and the pastels of conversation hearts
on the grocery store shelves.
I would alway read each heart
and carefully select just the right sentiments
for each class member.
I'm not sure how many fellow classmates
were even aware of my efforts but it mattered to me
to make sure that 'True Love'
did not end up in the wrong envelope!
