Heart Bomb.


When Meredith of One Sheepish Girl announced she was holding her second Sheepish Yarn Bomb, I knew I had to take part. You may remember my very first yarn bomb from back in September, and can you believe that it was still there after all these months??!!  With the Sheepish Heart Bomb now going on I knew this would be the perfect time to replace my previous yarn bomb... with hearts, of course!


I used two patterns to create my hearts. The small heart pattern is available in Meredith's post. The second pattern is the From the Heart Bunting pattern by Susan Carlson, which is a free pattern download on Ravelry. It was a lot of fun to do because it creates a heart out of two different colors.

I have to say that it felt good to replace the old weathered bows with pretty and colorful hearts for Valentines Day... 


I hope you all had a super Valentines day! We ate hot dogs, watched some of our favorite sitcoms and finished off with my husband playing guitar for me while I crafted and ate chocolates. These things, my friends, are the stuff true love is made of.  ;) 

What did you do for Valentines Day? 

P.S. If you want to participate in the #SheepishHeartBomb, there is still time.  More details here. And, if you already participated, leave a link below so I can check it out!  :)

  3. Adorable ones ! If I come up with an idea to place hearts (like clothing or something) I'm definitely keeping that two-toned in mind - so pretty. Your Valentine sounds the best kind of all. I don't need anything fancy or over the top, guitar and other goodies sound perfect. :) Although I've got cold and Samuli has been doing long evening shifts, so we didn't see each other all day. But we can have our own special date, any day ^^ About my wall art project, it's on the living room wall over the sofa. :) Thanks for the comment dear ! x Satu

  6. So cute! I've never seen crocheted hearts before. Your Valentine's Day sounds lovely! I had the day off and got to attend my girls' preschool party. The kids ate cupcakes and the parents helped them make heart crafts... it was so much fun!

  9. Oooohh so pretty! I wanna crochet some hearts too but first I gotta figure out where to put them (certainly not on our gate... the neighborhood kids will just take them haha)

    "We ate hot dogs, watched some of our favorite sitcoms and finished off with my husband playing guitar for me while I crafted and ate chocolates." That's simple yet so sweet! I agree, that's what true love is made of. :)

  10. Cute! That would cheer anyone up!

    Sounds like you had a great Valentine's day. We didn't really celebrate, but I did give him a kiss... We made a fancy dinner on Friday instead, and ended up watching Downton Abbey together - that is love! :-)

    1. The gate is on the sidewalk near an old historic church. It's such a pretty and peaceful spot. :)
