Stamping for Safelight

Valentines day is this week, and of course that means stamping time!  I like having a place for my creativity to go, so again this year, I decided to make little bags for Safelight like I did last year - Valentine Goodies for Safelight   I cannot imagine what this day must be like for …

Stamping February

Stamping in this Valentine month naturally centers on hearts and love, and I am so lucky to still have my sweetheart.  But, for many, Valentine's day isn't a day to celebrate, particularly those who have been betrayed by one they loved.  Perhaps, though, if I could make something small and inspirational, the day might be …

Valentine Decorating

Valentine hearts finally came out over the weekend. I haven't done anything new quilt-wise for Valentine this year, unless you want to count the red and cream Scrap Dance Waltz.  But I did put up a couple of things from years past. The pink candles came out to replace the Winter White of January. I …

Valentine Projects

I have been so involved with the mystery quilt, finishing some charity quilts, and a quilted art project I'll be sharing soon, that I haven't done anything new for Valentine's Day this year.  I did bring out the wall hangings and decorations, and I'll give you some links to where these were done last year …

Valentine Hearts Wall Hanging

I thought I'd bring this project forward from last year, since it uses the same hearts as the Hearts Around Table Topper.  When I showed it last February, there were only about a dozen people reading my blog, so most of you haven't seen it, LOL!! It is a bit bigger since I put three …

Valentine Breakfast

Since I decided to do breakfast instead of dinner for Valentine's day, the tablescape is simpler.  What better way to put a little romance on the table than with these pink depression glass dishes, a pattern called Cherry Blossom. Aren't they sweet on the pretty white placemats? There are paper heart napkins under the red …

Popovers with Black Cherry Creme

Most years the focus at Valentine's Day is on dinner, doing something special, whether going out or having a nice meal at home.  This year, we have a party to attend on February 14, so I thought I'd make a special breakfast.  I have a lot to show you, so settle in, and enjoy my …

A Cozy Valentine

February is the time our thoughts turn to chocolate, well for some of us. Others like a little romance. But for those that like a little mystery in our lives, cozy mysteries give us a little of both, and sometimes some chocolate too.  This would be a great time for Chocolate Covered Oreos!  Oreo molds …

Quilting Hearts Around

Quilting the Hearts Around Table Topper took longer than I thought.  Click on Hearts Around to see the construction phase.  The main issue was I couldn't decide how to do it.  After taking several free motion longarm classes last summer, I have yet to actually do an entire quilt with free motion.  So, taking a …

Hearts Around Table Topper

Scrappy reds are so pretty, and I really like these fabrics with their burgundy and cream colors.  What better motif for scrappy reds than hearts?   This table topper with its hearts facing different ways makes a wonderful centerpiece and everyone has the same view.  Its finished size is about 28 inches square. Start by cutting …

Wool Work Valentine Penny Rug

I enjoy all kinds of needlework, but there is a special place for wool work.  I don’t really know what it is about it, maybe because it is so easy and fast, or maybe it is the charm of it.  Either way, it is fun to do.  I wanted something with hearts for February to …

A Valentine Wall Hanging and a Table Topper

It is still deep winter in the mountains in February, but I am usually in the mood to bring in some color.  Seems like red and pink abound at this time of year, and that is what I am craving.  Or is it chocolate covered cherries?  Hmm, maybe both. I like to change the wall …
