make, give-away

Snowed-in Saturday sewing
Yellow block finished!
and put together with its friends:
Bought the fabric for a 2 1/2 inch white border today, then a scrappy square border.  I'd like to add my inspiration ric-rac somewhere.  Maybe by the binding?

I also finished the tiny totes.  Picture coming soon.
I'm also excited about this scarf:
I'd ordered a jelly roll of Delilah fabric.  The colors are so peaceful and springy- florals, small stripes, polka-dots.  With the pop of red, it makes me think of Valentine's Day.  I used daisyjanie's boho chic scarf pattern.  It calls for 2-inch strips- I just used them as-is, so mine's a little longer.  I left on as many selvages as possible and added one strip of small red gingham.  It took all evening to make- many many long seams- but totally worth it.

I had 12 strips left over that I'd like to share so you could get started on your own scarf
or some other cute thing.
To enter, leave a comment answering this Valentine-y question:
What do you think of Valentine candy hearts?

We're using them tomorrow for a math activity.  
My opinion:  They taste like Pepto-Bismol, they feel chalky, but are fun to read.
I'll randomly pick a winner on Tuesday, February 21.

Those are very cute little stars. Very pretty scarf too, springy!

My Mom used to put a little box of the hearts into my lunch on valentines day. Have not had them in years but they do bring back fond memories.

Great looking stars! Eating candy hearts is a little like eating chalk, but sometimes the sayings make it worth it.

I love your blocks so far! Which other colors are you planning on adding?

Valentine candy hearts are nasty. They are fun to read, though. lol. I'm not much of a candy eater. I prefer dark chocolate any day of the week! :) :)

Candy hearts are something one doesn't eat for flavor, but for effect. The old-fashioned sayings are my favorite.

I love tradition so, for that, they are a must. However, I don't eat them because they remind me of the tums I had to live on when I was pregnant! Thanks for the chance to win.

I love your stars, and your scarf is gorgeous, those fabrics are just divine!! I agree, they look so cute but I don't like eating them!
