Little Bit Of Love

I know Valentine's Day is a a few weeks away yet, but in the spirit of this lovely holiday I am sending a little love your way! That's right a free pattern for adorable little hearts! 

Confetti Hearts

In a magic circle ch 3, 3 treble, 3 double, ch1, treble, ch1, 3 double, 3treble, ch3, sc. That's it folks, fasten off yarn and make up a bunch more. These hearts have so many uses string em' together for a garland, make a lovely little pin, or use them as an applique! Hope you enjoy!

How time flies....

Has it really been that long since I last wrote? Oh my, it has!  The end of last year was a bit hectic to say the least, but onward and upward. Hope you all enjoyed your holidays and spent it with the ones you love!

One of my many New Year's resolutions is to blog more, Oh and Happy New Year by the way! My, my I am terribly behind. 

I have a few new little ditty's to show you since last time! As you well know I LOVE color, so I pushed myself to create a not-so-average doily. This one may send your granny running for the hills. It's bold and colorful but I am smitten with it!

 I have also made a few little trinkets to adorn my new antique finds! I just love antiques, don't you? 

Lastly, I am working on a beautiful baby blanket commissioned by my Aunt for her expecting niece! It's just lovely and a very easy pattern! This one I can do whilst I sit and watch the tube!
