Happy Valentines day

Thank you all for visiting my blog and wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day.

























I’m sending you all my heart.

Angel and me arranged some Valentine flowers for you too.


























































As you can see the winter was rather generous on snow this year.

























It makes it so much fun to travel to nursery these days.



















































Finally I have finished my knitted heart shawl. The length is 150cm/60’’and height is 90cm/36’’. It was big challenge for me since I’m really not a knitter, but I liked it. I even think I may do some more knitting in future, but crocheting is crocheting, at least for me.













































































Inspired by all the heart business around me, I made my own pretty heart.






































Pretty heart pattern





























1) Crochet 17 sc’s around 2cm/0.8’’ ring. (I used simple key ring). Slst to finish the round
2) Ch2, dc in the same stich//4tr in next // tr in next // 2dc’s // hdc in next four //dc-ch-tr-ch-dc in next //hdc in next four // 2dc’s in next // tr  in next //4tr in next // dc-ch2 in next // slst.
Leave a long tail so you can add a bead, bell, or anything else you wish to decorate your heart with.

And I also found another lacy heart chart, which may interest you.
