Queen of Hearts

I'm beginning to feel like the
Queen of Hearts.
In the last couple of weeks I have made more
knitted & crocheted hearts
than ever before.
And I have loved 
every single stitch!
I had a little help with this one.
Mercedes jumped into to help when it was time to make the rose :-}
This is my Valentine to my sister.
Bridget loves Valentine's Day.
I found the link to the pattern
on Attic 24.
The sweet little rose is Lucy's pattern for 
May Roses.
You can find it 
Another new pattern I have fallen in love with is this 
Rosy Heart
This crochet pattern can be found at
I am working on a hat for my friend Erin's little girl Eliza.
Miss Eliza and I are good buddies :-)))
She was born one day before my birthday.
This June
she will turn 3
& the next day I will turn 50. 
Friendship is always a matter of the heart;
not bound by age.
I will show you all the hat when I get it done.
It's my current WIP.
Erin and her family live across the street from me.
She has 4 daughters {Eliza is #3}.
For Valentine's Day 
I crocheted each of them a small
heart-shaped washcloth.
I used Queensland BeBe CotSoy for these on a size 6 needle.
They are so soft 
and just the right size for little hands.

I have been blessed to be on the receiving end of a couple of gifts myself.
This darling red crocheted heart was made for me by my dear friend
Mary Anne.
She made one for each of us in our little Monday night knitting group.
Another very dear friend
gave me this fabulous jar with a heart on the front.
I love both of these gifts so much!
{I must confess ~ I bought the mini rose bush while grocery shopping this morning.
 I can never resist them once they hit the market.}

And there's one last heart I have year round that I must show you...
Miss Phoebe
{a.k.a. The Spotted Beast}
has a heart on her side.
She is all heart!

Remember the 
Heart Bunting 
I made for my granddaughter
This is how the conversation went when I gave it to her yesterday...
I said,
"Do you like it?"
"I don't like it
I love it!!!
It's Beautiful!!!"
you can't ask for more than that!

Whatever this magical day holds in store for you,
I wish each & every one of you
