I should have known this before; I spent a part of my Friday nigth looking for heart crochet patterns on the internet (and found one, but didn't make a single one though :-( ). These ones really look cool, I love the 'edge', making it a real heartshape. I have to get myself familiar to the English words used in crochet! The vintage heart shaped cards are so lovely, thanks again. Have a lovely day!

Sweet little hearts, and I love the colors that you used! I'm still looking for the perfect patient person to teach me how to crochet, and hopefully these hearts are relatively easy to do for a beginner!
Have a great day!

Hi, Twyla!

Oh those hearts are so cute! They would look very sweet hung together!

Wow that's kind of a racey "burning up" Valentine, huh? ☺

I love your heart Valentine. I wonder how much I have forgotten about crocheting. I will borrow some of hubby's yarn. He won't care as long it is not a color he is working with. He is making an afghan, but for some reason he is ripping out more then he is knitting. It keeps him occupied and that is the main thing. I am borrowing one of your Valentines for my blog, I hope that you don't mind. You all take care.

Madison said...

Those crocheted hearts are adorable! And thanks for sharing the adorable cards!

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hugs...Tracy :)

Hi Twyla...
Your hearts are darling!!
Isn't it amazing what can be created with left over "scraps"?? I agree, they'd look so cute strung together as a garland/banner... or scattered on a table or dresser... or in a pretty glass jar... or, or, or!!!
And you know I'm lovin' the Vintage Cards... Thanks for sharing so much of your world 'n heart with us...

~ hugs 'n love ~
