Yes....are you thinking valentines yet. I know some of you already have some projects going. I went through some of my stash to see what I had. Not much here, but enough for a project or two. My only problem ....I'm ideas....nothing comes to mind!!!

STAR PROGRESS: go over and take a 'look-see' at some of the stars the following ladies have been busily creating...

True Blue Nana

Rhonda at Ravelly 1
Lynne at Patchery Menagerie.....and here

Posh and Trendy
Joann from Pieceful Afternoon

Wendy at Swirls of Fabric

I have been awarded with some honors lately. Many, many thanks go out to Julia at Creative Ribbons...Shari at Mumsy Blossoms...Mikki at Irish Muses. Go see what these lovely ladies have been up to. A big thank you also to Dionne over at Sew Many Quilts for inviting me to participate in an interview on her blog......but, alot of you know me, I declined. I'm kinda shy about those things, but go check out her blog and see her projects.
Thank you to everyone for making this blogging so much fun. I really appreciate the honors and generosity, and especially for all the wonderful friends I have made!!!!!!

  1. Oh my but you've got a bunch of us making stars now :)
    I love the way Swirls of Fabric made her stars with all kinds of fabric prints.. I've got to make some too since my basket of squares is a mixed breed with not too many that are the same.
    Thank you again for sharing with us.

  2. Be still my heart! I LOVE hearts and haven't even been thinking of Valentine's day yet. Now you've got me thinking............

  3. I've been thinking valentiney things, too! I have two crates with Valentine fabrics, so I have plenty to a large quilt or several smaller projects.

    I decided today that I am going to make a table runner out of Terry Atkinson's Out to Lunch book.

    The rest of the valentine fabrics I may make a Yellow Brick Road, another one of Terry's patterns.

    You know when I saw your stash of fabric someone sent you the first thing I noticed was the valentine fabric!

  4. What fun - all those hearts. I have only two fabrics that are even slightly valentine. But then I don't do much theme stuff. But yours are lovely.

    And look at all those stars - you are a good teacher.

  5. after making my heart block...i'm a little more in the valentine's mood. love your valentine's stash!

  6. Thanks, I have made two stars so far. I can't thank you enough for sharing your talent. These are so primitive. Thanks, MJ

  7. ooow that is some great fabric, i love the black and pink one.

  8. Hia again Belinda, yes I'll be making stuff for Valentines on the actual day at Patched Pumpkin. I'll also be taking the rose wreath I made last year out of the cupboard later today.

  9. I have to admit.. I have hardly given a lot of thought to Valentine's Day. With the Tea Swap.. it might just pass me by this year..

  10. Aren't there some fabulous valentine's fabrics out there? I love love love them. I made one of those bulls-eye quilts last year with hearts instead of circles with a lot of my heart fabrics.

    I love your blog. I think I'm going to change my design back so it looks like this.

  11. Nope!! I would love to make some valentiny stuff but like you I'm not sure what I want.
    A wall hanging?? centerpiece?? small quilt?? placematts?? my mind is flitting in 50 different directions at once. I'm going to cheat and wait to get "ideas" from you...*lol*

    ~~Fran...:c) the pretty fabric:)

  12. everything is just so colorful...lovely to look at

  13. Boy, you got me thinking of Valentine's Day...I think that I will machine embroider some hearts onto definitely got me thinking.
    Thanks for the mention in your post.

  14. Thanks to this post I decided to make some Valentine pot holders using your star pattern and Nanette's cottage pattern. Their on todays blog if you wish to see them.

  15. Hi Belinda.
    Sticking my head in to say 'gudday' and thanks for stopping by and commenting on my kitty cat and quilt.

    You have a great day!

  16. OH you have got some gorgeous valentine fabric there, have you thought of anything yet?

  17. I did already start a Valentine project which is kinda odd because my husband and I don't celebrate it at all. Any excuse for a pink and green quilt really.

  18. I do Valentines day all year......right...just came about your blog and it is so sweet...I have a little valentine day blogintine going on if you would like to go look...I will be back and really do love your blog....Lani
