Valentine sweetness from a dear friend

On Valentine's Day, I received a manila envelope in the mail from my dear friend J. What a creative little gift she put together!

First was this adorable felt heart, trimmed with embroidery and reading "Friend".

When I asked J. where she found the pattern for this, she told me she just made up this craft out of her head. I wish I had gotten a less blurry photo, but was in a hurry. Maybe I can take another picture later. Those are tiny embroidered roses up by the top of the heart. Isn't it adorable? I would love to make some of these for gifts for next year.

And then there were these three crocheted coasters in such Valentine-y colors!

Aren't they just beautiful!? I can see these done in fall colors, Christmas colors, even blue, white and gray for winter.... I will definitely be making some of these! They are made with cotton yarn like one would use for dishcloths, so are easily washable.

This thoughtful surprise surely lifted my spirits this week! I am so thankful to the Lord for my dear friend J. and her thoughtful ways.
