I have been busy making hearts. I saw this pattern on Pinterest, which took me to Craftsy, and frankly I am not sure how I found it on that site. It was designed by Luba Davies. You can find her on Ravelry here, but this link takes you to her etsy shop and I am not sure where the pattern is on that site. Lots of help aren't I?
You can whip one of these out in minutes, they are very fun. I learned the magic loop thingy with this little project. I have to say I am not that found of that loop at all, but it does make a nice, small center.
I thought I would make little heart pins for teachers and therapists for Valentine's Day. Make a quick heart, sew on the pin back and there you have it. A great way to use up stash yarn that is for sure. I made 15 red hearts and 3 variegated with some old washcloth yarn I had on hand.
I had all the yarn, I had the pin backs, and I had these three key chain holders, so I was out absolutely nothing for this little project, that makes it even better. I will pin these to a little card with a Valentine's message on it and Little Buddy can take them into school next week.
Speaking of working out of my stash, two more hats were made this week for Taci. I am going to get these out in the mail today or Monday. She has already received a few which is so much fun to see. I think it will be great to see how many people contribute to her project to take hats to Brazil for little ones in need. Of course it will also be fun to see all the varieties of hats she receives.
Here are my five before they have been packed up. Hope your heads stay warm little ones.
Look the lettuce is growing in my EarthBox!! I am so excited things are growing.
My tomato plants are growing, too. It is so fun to watch.
The strawberries are growing, but not as fast as the others. I hit the very end of strawberry growing season so we will see how they work out.
Here is my gorgeous Max, deep in thought looking out at the pool. He is a beauty inside and out.
We have family arriving from Wisconsin today for a few days. I will pop in when I can to visit. Now I had better get cleaning!
