Tu-Na Quilts: The Rest of the Story…

Earlier today I posted here about all the Valentine things I made this year from fabric and flour. I ended my post saying that I gave Tu-Na Helper (my husband) the mug rug and he gave me flowers. I did not know that there was still more Valentine surprises coming my way.

Tu-Na Helper drove me to the Sew and Chat Evening Session of my quilting group. I was the first to arrive and the room was still locked and dark. I could hear voices in the courtyard but didn’t really pay attention. I unlocked the room and turned on the lights. Tu-Na Helper brought in my sewing machine and supplies.

Soon the room was overrun with a dozen people carrying sheet music. I was thinking that the office had made a mistake and accidently scheduled the room for another group besides us quilters. Our quilting group’s President had now arrived and explained that they couldn’t stay because we would be using the room. The explanation came, “We’re here to sing a song to Karen.” They turned towards me and started singing, “Let Me Call You Sweetheart.”

After another love song, they handed me a box of  very delicious chocolates and a bright red rose.

What I Learned Today:

  1. I am loved.
  2. Singing Valentines are the very best kind to receive.

Question: What would you choose: chocolate truffle, raspberry cream, caramel, maple nut butter, or coconut cluster? I shared the chocolates with my quilting friends who came to sew and chat. The raspberry cream was delicious! And so was the chocolate truffle.

Thanks for stopping by and do come again.

Karen, Tu-Na Quilts

    Hi Karen,
    Awww, how sweet is that?! I can still here my dad singing that song in my head from when I was a child. That brings back a really nice memory, and now you have one of your own. Mr Tu-na Helper is a keeper but you already knew that! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Well, isn’t that the cutest thing ever? What a fun idea, and so great that he could actually pull it off without you knowing. He really is a keeper. I’ll take the chocolate truffle, thank you!

    Wow! What a great memory you now have of another sweet Valentine’s Day! So romantic and thoughtful of Tu-Na Helper! My chocolate pick would definitely be as much chocolate as one could get in a bit or two…the chocolate truffle!

    The two you mentioned would have been my first choices, too! What a true sweetheart you have. He drives you all over creation for shop hops and then is so romantic and has a singing Valentine for you. You made a great choice years ago. =)



I'm intersted in what you think. Thanks for leaving a comment.
