I have been crocheting some little hearts ... a very nice pattern from Lucy from Attic 24 .... And then, I read a way to join hearts and make them into a bunting!
I rejoiced at the words from the pattern ... it said to keep connecting them until... "All hearts are joined".
Oh, I really just loved that. I made one of these heart buntings ... as a giveaway, to honor all the hearts joined together in our blogging world and to also honor the Olympic spirit that I have been enjoying this week.Guess who won Kay's giveaway?
Her package arrived yesterday - a little package filled with big love. Inside were a beautiful card, the cheerful heart bunting, and a lovely little pale green doily (with pattern).
The heart bunting now hangs over my crafty side-table:
And the little doily came just in time to put under a tiny vase holding the first geranium blossoms of the year (which were knocked off the plant by accident - I would never have picked them!):
Hearts are joined. Isn't that one of the best parts of blogging?
Thank you so much, Kay. Your lovely and loving gift was just what I needed this week.

And very sincere thanks to all of you who sent kind wishes for my dad's health. He was released from the hospital Monday and is now at a skilled nursing facility for therapy. He's very weak from all he's been through; we hope and pray that he can rest up and recover enough strength to enjoy life once more.
