Hearts Galore!

Holidays always seem to sneak up on you, don't they? I always have good intentions of making holiday items for my crochet shop, but as soon as I start thinking about it, the holiday is peeking around the corner at me! 

Now it's Valentine's Day that's peeking around that corner, and I'm busy making hearts!



  
Just finished up these three cuties....
Small, medium and large



In the past, these heart cookies have been successful,
but I'll be changing to a cotton yarn this year since I prefer making my foodies in cotton 
for less fuzzies!


These puffy hearts are cute and I have to share a couple of stories....



One red heart was a part of a marriage proposal.... helping to guide his love toward her ring. Is that one sweet guy, or what?!!




Then, a set of two hearts, one pink and one red, went to a little girl whose mom wrote to tell me that her daughter sleeps with one, and the other goes to school with her "to comfort her when she's anxious, overwhelmed or stressed." 


I love it when customers share with me! And I love it that my puffy hearts can bring smiles, happiness and comfort to others. 

Guess I'll be making more hearts today!

It's hard to believe Valentine's Day is just ahead...but it is!

I always wanted to learn how to crotchet and never learned. What sweet stories you shared!

I'm liking your 'strawberry' hearts. "Keep on keeping on" as they say.
Mom used to crochet. She made round and oval rugs out of discarded clothing, colorful rags.

Those hearts are so cute. I thought that was so sweet the way the little girl sleeps with one and takes one to school. Just today I was organizing my craft closet and came across my bag of crochet stuff. I've tried a few times to learn, but I need to find the right teacher. I need someone that will let me hold it and do it rather than watch them. I thought about tossing it and then decided to hold on to it a little while longer...just in case.

I love that idea of little girl with a red heart and a pink heart to help her when she feels anxious.
