Hearty Crochet

My dears, hope you are doing great! I shall admit that I've been a little busy lazy in the first half of February. Perhaps the waning moon made me such, and  I hope it'll give a charge of new strength as it's in its growing phase now. I also put a moon phases widget on the left side bar. It is very useful for choosing the best days for planting. My little garden hasn't been productive so far, the beans didn't give any valuable harvest, and I'm waiting for this weekend to plant them again. 
I had pretty nice marigolds last year, so I sowed them again, but found out one sunny morning that the birds, who are living on our citrus tree, impertinently pulled out some sprouts and plucked first tender leaves from others! This was the moment when I turned to an angry bird myself... and covered my precious plants with thin cotton cloths. Now I do this every morning, and remove the cloth in the evening.
Hey, but I gave a crochet title to this post and still chatting about my garden issues. Well, to the business. Tomorrow is St. Valentine's day, and I just couldn't stop making hearts the whole week. After the first stripy heart, I made two more. I took the pictures in the morning. It was windy, and hearts kept on swinging, so I was able to catch only few still moments, when finally settled them on the cloth. 
This blue heart is filling my cupboard with eucalyptus fragrance... sorry, I don't have lavender in my stash now.
This one was gifted to my friend today. What I like the most in making of these hearts is that you can use leftover yarn, combine any colors - they seem to look nice together anyway. By the way, I made a pattern for these hearts as well. A Stuffed Cheshire Heart Sachet pattern is a free download which you can find here if interested.
So, this was my hearty crochet and hearty wishes of a good day to you, dears!
 Have a fabulous 14th of February (and other days too;)), have fun, Love and Be Loved!

  3. You have birds...I have ground squirrels that eat plants as fast as they sprout up. Am going to try starting Hollyhock seeds in peat cups before planting this year, to see if I can't beat the squirrels at their own game! Delightful little hearts in your tree - glad to see you are adding to Ravelry's patterns. LOVE Ravelry - Happy Valentines Day, Anna - Tanya
