Well, next week is Valentine’s Day and there are all sorts of ways to surprise your loved ones with a little something and it doesn’t always have to be the traditional flowers and candy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy receiving flowers, they brighten up any room and make us remember that spring is coming! There are so many different gifts to give! With the continued cold weather and snow, warm hats mittens, and scarfs would be greatly appreciated. I am busy knitting some small gifts for the people in my life. Pictures to follow. Below are some ideas that I have found:
When I purchased the shawl project from Jimmy Beans Wool the package came with a JBW Project Pack #13, The Piece of My Heart Pincushion pattern. The directions might be hard to read, but all you have to do is use your favorite red fabric, cut out a nice full heart shape, sew the two pieces together, stuff with fiberfill and finish with embellishments. It’s a great little project and should work up real quick!
For knitters, I found this cute Heart Mug Hug from Red Heart. What a great way to keep the person you care about thinking about you each time they have a cup of coffee. The pattern can be downloaded for free and should only time a short time to complete!
Let’s not forget my love for sweets, for sure! How about making some chocolate brownies, heart-shaped cookies, or yummy chocolate candy?
