Heart Banner



Valentine's Day
is right around the corner . . .
so like everyone else I have had
 thoughts of hearts
dancing through my mind.


So I decided to make a new banner.







Have you had thoughts of hearts
dancing through your 
creative mind?

Keep Smiling!
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. I noticed that you still have snow . . . our weather is crazy. Yesterday it was 55 degrees around 6:30 A.M. before the sun was even up, today at the same time it is 32 degrees. I am wondering if the first temperature may have been a record beaker for February in our area. We sure enjoyed it while it lasted . . . Butchy played outside just about all day :)

    1. I think that if we believe in our dreams, they are more likely to come you :)

  4. That is SUCH a cute banner, Connie! I love it---and who says hearts should be pink or red? Love the blue ones here. All my Valentine Day stuff is packed away in a warehouse...sigh...next year! xo Diana

  9. Such a cute banner.

    I made a couple out of book page hearts, but maybe I should sew up a few when I get my sewing machine out today.

    1. I love making banners . . . you can use any scraps you have hanging around and they are so fun and easy to put together. They add a little charm any place you hang them :) Have fun sewing!

  10. Such a cute banner Connie. And since it’s blue I wouldn’t feel I would need to put it away after Valentine’s Day! I have a few hearts strung around, but they were all made in previous years. Nothing new to show for this season. Blessings, Betsy

    1. The reason it is blue is because I had these blue scraps setting on the counter out in the barn . . . I just wanted a little distraction from quilting . . . so I picked them up and made this banner :) They could have been any color, LOL

    1. I'm with you hearts are really for anytime of the year . . . there is no season for love :) That white is a stretchy lace for making headband and things like that. I had it left from another project:)

  12. That's so charming, Connie! I love that you went with blue instead of red or pink!

  13. The banner is so cute! It drives me crazy that I never come up with cute ideas for any holiday, until the holiday gets here. You always have the neatest and cutest ideas. Oh Connie, I have two pretty new tops, thanks to you and the Amazon gift card. I Still can't believe I won. Thank you.
