Valentine’s Hearts

I made some Valentine’s hearts for my daughter and granddaughters. Using a Floral Heart Motif pattern I saw on Pinterest (check out my Crochet Hearts Pinterest board) I made two pink and white hearts out of yarn for Miss Munchkin and Miss Wiggles.

I also made one in red and white for my daughter. These were all quite large, about 6 inches across, as I used the size G crochet hook and medium weight yarn that the pattern suggested.

While making them, I began thinking how they would look made from thread. So I dug out some size 10 thread and my size 2mm crochet hook and started in. One heart measured slightly less than 3 inches across, so about half the size of the yarn hearts. Before I was halfway done with the first heart, I was already picturing several joined together to make one Valentine’s Day Circle of Hearts doily.

And here is the doily with a bud vase in the center, along with a Valentine’s Day rose.

This sits on the counter between the kitchen and living room and I get to look at it every time I stand at the kitchen sink. It probably would look better if I took the time to block it (wash, pin, starch), but I was in such a hurry to use it. I quite like it the way it is! And can you believe I actually made something for myself? I am getting better at doing that!
