Valentines Day stories please...

This thread is about happy valentine stories connected to
woodturning...
Please contribute.
Let me start with my own, it is not really connected to valentines day,
but since it is really near my wife's birthday - I guess it fits.
Anyway for a birthday present I just bought my wife a sawing (sewing?)
machine, it's a nice machine, from the Bernina brand, the only
non-digital they currently make (Bernina 1008 if you're interested).
Why is it connected to woodturning you ask? well since I gave her the
present, I get to pick the first thing she made - and that is going to
be a very neat tool-roll for all my carving and turning tools (actualy
a couple of them...)
I'm to cheap to buy them (they are so highly priced for a piece of
cloth), so this is my chance. Next project a working outfit for me so I
don't ruin any decent clothes.
On with your own stories...
Oh and before I forget, I promised pictures of my new setup at home so
here goes:

My wife looked at the price of a leather tool roll from Lee Valley, and ordered me two of them. ;-) Couldn't get onto her 'to do list'.
She DID appreciate the new machine this winter, however.
Thanks for posting.

Hi Moshe
I don't know how most see this, but valentine day is just a bunch of commercialism, just as what now is Christmas day, IMO. It's a NoGo here.

Greetings Moshe, Thanks for sharing your happy St. Valentine's Day story. It cheered all of us. I had a happy experience also. This year I sent the family some hearts made from George's suggestions instead of the usual cards. They were fun to make and give and apparently to receive. There is nothing that's worthwhile that can't be spoiled by crass commercialism, but it would be a sad world if we let the spoilers win.
Wishing you and yours a safe and happy St. Valentine's Day and all the days to follow. We want to see a picture of you in your turner's smock holding your tool rolls.
Turn to Safety, Arch Fortiter

What kind of tree is that near your "shop"? I can remember having a shop even smaller than that, and had to store the lawn mower in it too!

Five years ago when Mildred and I had our first St. Valentine's Day together. I made her a heart shaped pin and a pair of heart shaped earrings. This year I found the bag with the purple heart ring in it and cut off some more hearts for another pin. This time they were linked hearts with a magnetic hanger (one magnet in the pin and one on the back side of her blouse). She wore it to the Valentine's Dance at the Senior Center on Saturday night.

Go order your wife some flowers. She'll be surprised and I guarantee you will enjoy the payback. Of course she may wonder what you've been up to!

OK
Seems like I'm the COC today,No I'm not against the "valentine" idea but all the BS surrounding it, if you know what I mean, not a conformist I guess.
YOU'ALL HAVE A HAPPY VALENTINE !!!!!!!!!!!
Have fun and take care Leo Van Der Loo

Leo, I'd rather get her some roses than try to explain all the other stuff - or cause her to have to explain. 'Sides I get her flowers other times as well so what the hell. TomNie

It's an olive tree, actualy a pretty old one (I wish it many more years), we have a lot of them in the garden since the whole village is like an immense olive grove, they are beautifull. The "shop" (I like the way you write that) is 2.5 X 2.5 (meters, which is about 8'X8' feet I guess) not tiny, but certainly needs to grow :-) I will probably have to move in the Washing machine :-(

Yep, don't have to have Hallmark prompt me. I know what I pearl I found, and a gift or two, including flowers now and then, seems appropriate.

reminds me of an old joke.... a lady was across the street talking to a neighbor when she saw roses delivered to her house...
she said "damn... roses! My legs will be up in the air for days.."
Her friend said "Don't you have a vase?".... *drum roll*
