From my crochet design room rises another creation...
The HEXED HEART
THIS PATTERN features my Perfect Heart SUSPENDED in a HEXAGON. It is the natural progression from the Perfect Heart CAPTIVE in a square. I know, I know, I can't help myself, these crochet hearts are all consuming. OBVIOUSLY, I am having LOADS OF FUN playing with all the ideas. Sometimes, the ideas are flowing fast, way too fast, for me to keep up with crocheting them.

AND then of course EASTER is just around the corner, and Easter treats are constantly on my mind.
