all heart garland


One wee - or not so wee as it took a lot longer to actually assemble if not crochet - project I've actually managed to both begin and complete as lately. What begun with a wee single heart...


Turned into lots of tiny hearts with many loose ends...


The loose ends got tied and turned into...


... the heart garland.


Ever since I saw the sweet idea and pattern at cute Yvestown blog past Valentine's Day I've been meaning to make one myself. As the heart is one pattern-symbol-shape I adore (much like acorns...).


Even if the pink-red colour palette is my favourite I wanted to make this tad more summery and fresh, with a feel of green grass and blue skies with woolly white clouds. So I went with turquoise, apple-green, teal and off-white instead. I am pleased with end result and yes there will possibly be more such hearty garlands made by me (ah the colour combinations are endless and alluring...).


For now though this summery garland will adorn my kitchen window with its hearty, summery and hopefully brimming with good vibes appearance.

Hi Pia, such a pretty garland. Right for the garden, for a little celebration, heart to heart or tete a tete. (the French sign language is missing on my pc. Anyway hearts are always welcome. Have a very nice week. The pictures are very pretty.

That's a cute project! I might see if I can manage a heart and make some for the girls' rooms.

While I was in Germany last week, I spied a pair of El Naturalistas and thought of you. Then I bought them. Perhaps I will find a few moments to take a Pia-style photo of them.

Imagine that. You could probably find matching colours for any situation. And always remember - more often than not, the loose ends are what makes life captivating.
