1. I enjoy my first cup of coffee of the day
2. I enjoy walking outside with Gizzy on a cool, crisp day
3. I love the snow and hear it crunch beneath my foot steps
4. I enjoy crocheting very much!
Tag, you're it!
Speaking of crocheting: I'm in the process of making a bunch of heart ornament hangers for Valentine's Day or any occasion really... in fact, I've made a box full already, but am not tired of making more...here's a preview of the ones I'm working on. They need embellishments with either ribbon or beads and then they're ready for selling or giving away...
I like making these for several reasons 1) it's a great opportunity to use up scrap yarn; 2) I love playing/working with colors and the color combination on these are endless; 3) for some reason looking and working with heart shapes makes me smile and 3) it's almost instant gratification, because they don't take that long to make. When I run out of heart shaped bangle bracelets to use, I have some round shower hooks to make round frames like the purple one in the middle photo on the right (with my picture in it.)
Oh, and I should probably show you the backside of my hearts as well. They are so pretty from both sides, that you really do not need to add a picture...they can be just given away "as is" as Valentines...or you could insert a note (instead of a photo) that reads "I love you" or "Be Mine" or "Happy Mother's Day" ... whatever the occasion may be:
The hearts for the backside (as pictured above) were made according to the tutorial in my previous post here!
