If you've been reading here for a while, you know that ever since Colleen went away to college, I've sent her a stitched Valentine. My first Valentine was very Valentine-y, but then you'll see that I went with designs that could be out year-round. I'd choose something with a heart theme, though.
Anyways, this arrived in Colorado yesterday and...Yep. She liked it. The design is by My Big Toe and was published in the 2011 JCS Christmas Ornament issue. Back before Christmas, another blogger had stitched it and I knew right away that all it needed was a bit of recoloring to make a perfect Valentine. So right away I typed it into Evernote so I'd remember it when February rolled around.
|FYI - it's not very small if you stitch it over 2. If you want it small, either use 40 ct fabric or stitch it over one.|
I have to tell you, ever since I found out about Evernote, I'm a whole new woman. I don't know if it's that I'm getting older or that there is SO MUCH MORE to remember, but let me tell you...that tiny little app is a tremendous help to me.
I write everything from grocery lists to sampler sayings I want to remember. From lists of books I want from the library to a list of the quantity of food I ordered for a holiday luncheon. I list charts that I'm getting ready to stitch and I make a list of the supplies I need to buy before I get started. LOVE. IT.
Maybe some of you have a favorite smart phone app. Why not tell us about it in your blog?
