One down ...

This little basket of scrumptious wool and jute string
will be my constant companion for some time to come,


as from these things, 
40 little hearts need to materialise.


They don't take too long and I have plenty of time as they are 
not needed until Megs wedding in August ...


.... but I thought I should make a start nevertheless.
Progress was slow with only one crossing the production line on Saturday,
but thanks to a cold and grey day, and a log fire being lit at 12:00 pm yesterday
 afternoon the grand total of 5 has been achieved !


And just in case I should have some time on my hands when I'm out and 
about I have a little bag of 
'hearts to go' all packed up and ready.

  2. We're on with saving tin can, jam jars, squirreling away large fallen branches in the woods behind us for collection later and purchasing wooden ladders from ebay to make an arch for Becky's wedding.

  4. They are lovely, I bet this wedding will be uber gorgeous. I have taken a leave from your book and took my knitting on a day out last week, when it lashed down I took refuge in a café and knocked up another 5 rows.

  5. No weddings (my daughter is only 7!!!) but I always have a crochet bag to go with a project I some description. I think this could be the perfect project for the next two weeks for me!! Best of luck with the remaining 35!!

  6. Its brilliant that you're making for your daughter, my 10 year old has just entered the "everything mum makes is naff" phase. I suppose that's it for the next decade or so. Oh well it was nice while it lasted!

  8. Oh they're gorgeous, they will look so beautiful all together. The yarn is scrumptious, such a delicious deep red, and you've stitched them perfectly. You honestly make the nicest things. I'm expecting to see at least twelve next time I'm here. CJ xx

  11. They're lovely Kate, gorgeous colour and the Rowan siena gives a lovely finish. I'm sure you'll have them done in plenty of time, remember how quickly all those pom poms multiplied for the lovely blanket you made recently! Happy heart-making.

  14. These are gorgeous, just adorable.Your tension is so neat and the heart shape so clear. You could maybe just hang that five as a little Valentine's decoration, to spur you on to complete the other 35? xx
