Happy Valentine's Day

Good Morning and Happy Valentine's Day! You guys are awesome and I hope you'll all be my Valentines!


I had some fun lately making a  little banner. I'm sure like me, you've seen a lot of banners/buntings out there on Pinterest.  I love the look of using vintage linens, just take a peek at this, this, this and this. But while I think they all look so pretty, I'm a big squeamish about cutting up pretty old things, even if they are damaged. I was cutting up some of my Heart Toile and thought gee, this is like the next best thing!  I used Elizabeth's Celebration Banners pattern, because that scalloped edge across the top is just so cute.  I think I'll add to this, but I need to pick up some Heat and Bond off the bolt which I can't find in town.  The stuff I can find, not so good.  I also like Steam-a-Seam but I can only get that in a package and these pieces are just too big. ANYWAY... wouldn't it be fun to adapt Suzanne's tag idea for this too? Buttons, flowers, you name it, not to mention something like Elizabeth did here.

While I was at CHA with Roseann, we came across the Pinhooks booth.  What a great idea, hangable push pins. Perfect for this kind of project (and a million other things).


This is Johnny, who is the President  of Pinhooks I believe! He was quite a good sport and was willing to ham it up for me. Thanks for the Pinhooks Johnny! They work like a charm!
