Valentine Banner

It was January when I was binding my Hallow'een pillow cases, but I've got this one on time! Yeah for me. Unemployment does not work well for me, I just can't seem to use my time wisely. Plus my Valentine takes a big chunk of my stitching time....but he's worth it!


I only have one or two evenings alone at home when I can sit and stitch, so it's been slow going on my BTCT. Hanging my head in shame, I'm still stitching the binding on my Sisters Choice. I have about 25% left on the binding and a label.

This banner was from a panel that I got at Fabric Etc.   You have to scroll back to Jan 16th post to see Carols, she used bright green and it is really great.   It makes 18 flags so I have two of these, but only one with lettering. I used double folded bias tape, (the packaged pre-made kind) and added little yo yo's. I had the perfect fabric for them, a mini pink and red check from years ago. Yeah for a stash!

Hope you have time to stitch this weekend, and for those being hit by cold and snow, please stay safe and warm.

I wonder how it feels to get holiday decor finished before the actual holiday. What a novel concept! : )
I really like your banner, and you have the perfect place to display it!

Cute banner and Yay! for getting it done early! As long as you're making forward progress, it counts. Don't be harsh on yourself. Besides, you need to enjoy your sweetie and your free time right now. Have fun!

What a fun banner - our fireplace is going constantly or I would have something festive up too. Also still quilting away on the BTCT quilt - i keep telling myself it is not a race but would love to have it done in time for Christmas, 2014. Can you believe how fast the time has gone though since we all started that first block!!??
