Valentine's Day is almost here.  I think we should take a walk around Market of Choice and see what they have going on.

 Chocolates...

...and flowers.
What more do you need, really?

The problem challenge would be in choosing.

So many scrumptious things.

Including sweet primroses.

Take a chance - kiss a frog!

Amazing cakes...

Pretty flowers...

Chocolate dipped strawberries...

Cupcakes...

Daffodils...

Cookies...

Tulips.  
In 2004 I was in London on Valentine's Day.  This display reminds me of the floral display in front of Liberty's.

Here's one side of the Liberty's floral display.

And here's the other side.
Amazing!

Oh I simply love Valentine's Day! I agree, it would be hard to choose between chocolates or flowers. I think both would be good and one of those frog cupcakes too!

I like the look of the strawberry topped cake - so many sweet things. The flower displays are so colourful.

I'd take the chocolate dipped strawberries. Two food groups in one go!

Can I have one of each? Lovely walk through Market of Choice. That place must smell amazing!

I really like the Love Grows design too.

I love your project . I have never stitched on such a dark linen. I'm thinking it is good that I don't live near that market- too many yummy things!
