Hello dear readers,
to celebrate it being a month closer to Spring (well, I certainly hope so) I have decided to share my new pattern with you! I made these cute crochet hearts last night, while watching the TV. They are cute/quick to make; and great little stash busters. Especially for small left over bits of yarn!
