...you can hang ALL your hearts!
I first saw these hearts at Pammy Sue's blog, Scotty's Place, and was immediately inspired to get out my yarn and hooks to make some of my own!
I crocheted a total of ten of them... at least so far; and basically following the patterns found HERE. My own variation was to whipstitch the hearts together, rather than single-crochet around the heart. Then I decided to add lace, ribbon, and pearl strands, to give just a bit more of a Victorian look about them. I gifted one of them to a friend this past weekend, and Dear Daughter will pick whatever she wants from the bunch, later today. From there I'll share the rest of them with others for Valentines Day!
In what little free time I've had, when not crocheting, I did a couple of quick junque/art journal pages. This first one is a paper doll of sorts. I did not sketch it... Nor did I paint it. I felt like paper-piecing this little rag doll together one night... Just cutting and gluing, and a little magic-markering! So simple, but she definitely makes me smile!
Then, another night, I played with Martha Stewart's new circle edge punch! I have to admit, I messed up the first circle, not following directions properly. But the second one, which looked much like the sun to me, came out perfect...
I really LOVE this new punch set, because now I can make all my own paper doilies, myself, instead of having to buy them every time I run out! "It's a good thing!"
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
