Valentine Love



Hello Friends! Today we have more vintage Valentines.





So sweet!




I hope you are finding uses for them in your crafting.



I've still been crocheting madly and have whipped up another afghan. This one I did in red, pink, grey, white and black.




It's just a stripe pattern worked in half double crochet. It makes a thick, warm blanket. It looks perfect for Valentine's Day.



Spencer likes to help mommie every chance he gets.


Thank you for joining us today. We always enjoy your visits!
Have a wonderful day!
Twyla

I have a mad crush on Spencer! HA! :) What a cutie! Red Heart yarn -- love that stuff, but can't get it in Kuwait. Boo! Have never done an afghan in half double crochet -- think that is next on my list of things to try. Love the vintage valentines and will be printing some of these out soon for crafting! Thanks for always sharing your lovely collections. Blessings for a wonderful week. Tammy

Aw, Spencer! He looks so precious! Do you crochet blankies for the puppies? I think he's trying to tell you he wants one with the stripe pattern. ☺ Great job, Twyla!

Thanks for sharing the cards. The owl pun is great! ♥

Love the afghan what nice colors for Valentines! I just started thinking about Valentines and I was looking for a heart shaped form to make a wreath and can you believe it everyone is out!

Mrs Twins said...

Your cards are lovely, I really love these old ones.
Your afghan too I'm pleased I stopped by. The colours go great together.
I too was looking for a heart shape foam, I can't get one either. I can't do the project I wanted to do.
Well done, keep up the good work!
Hugs and Love Suex

It's been years since I crocheted an afghan. I know I still have some yarn here somewhere. Any easy patterns to get back into it with?
