I have been crocheting some little hearts and it is a very nice pattern from Lucy from Attic 24...you may find her pattern just here! And then, I read a way to join hearts and make them into a bunting!
Bunting is very popular in England, you almost always see bunting used at fayres (fairs) and fetes (what we would call a festival, I suppose.)
I rejoiced at the words from the pattern...it said to keep connecting them until...
"All hearts are joined".
Oh, I really just loved that. I made one of these heart buntings...but I also made one as a giveaway, to honor all the hearts joined together in our blogging world and to also honor the Olympic spirit that I have been enjoying this week. So...please leave me a comment and you will be entered into my giveaway! Here is a photo of the heart bunting on my mantel....
It's just a little thing, but I have enjoyed seeing these hearts strung along my mantel! I have placed each end underneath the photo frames at the ends of the mantel and that holds it quite nicely.
Now, these hearts are not as perfect as Lucy's from Attic 24! Hers are very good. My hearts are a bit wonky but they look sweet if you don't look too closely.
Want to see some of the cards on my mantel?
The card above was from a co-worker today and I thought it looked pretty with one of my crocheted hearts!
This is a hand-made get-well card that was made in England and was sent to me from the Isle of Lewis! Those are Austrian and Czech crystals in the spoon, and it says "A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down"! Such a lovely card, I was so sick during the month of January, it really did help!! Doesn't it fit perfectly in my Valentine collection? Thanks to the sweet lady who sent this to me, you know who you are!
. Our son was always crazy about dinosaurs and here is a card that we gave him years ago, and I put it out every Valentine's Day, just because it reminds me of our son! (Happy Valentine's to our son and his girlfriend!)
Now, sometimes a piece of ice can look like a dinosaur...see what you think of the next photo...
This ice was on our ROOF! I told you we had an ice storm, didn't I?
Remember to leave a comment and let me know if you want to be entered for the "Until All Hearts Are Joined" crochet heart bunting giveaway! I will let you know the winning name by the end of next week! (Oh, and Richard took the first and last of these photos, and I photographed the others!) Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, with NO ICE.
