Stitchy Update and Pretty Pink Crochet Heart

I was pleased to get just a tiny bit of stitching done on Christmastide. It was enough to make me realize I DO want to continue with it. Sometimes I get an itch to just abandon a project, and I did with this one too, but I have persevered!

Doesn't look like a lot, but those swirls gave me a fit. You gotta think about where to put the stitches, or just do half the stitch, so you can circle back and complete them. Can't wait to get this top done and move on to those cute little reindeer and house!

I also wanted to crochet something pretty for Valentine's Day. I started a pattern called Grandma's Heart, which you can find HERE.

I gotta tell you, this has confused me SO much. I don't think I'll be able to finish it based on my current level of confusion, but I thought the beginning of it was super cute!  If you happen to try it, I wish you luck, and maybe you could let me know what you think of the actual written pattern, and what I may be missing. I'm a pretty experienced crocheter, but this one may have bested me. I'm not giving up/in just yet. But I'm close. :)

This week is Valentine's Day, and I hope everyone has a good one-even if it's just by yourself. Sometimes, these holidays can make a person feel very lonely. But grab a friend and have a "Galentine's Day" lunch or take yourself to a movie!  By the way, my mom and I went to see Knives Out last week and I HIGHLY recommend! We loved it!

Until next time,


  1. I think Christmastide looks great.
    That heart is so pretty, thanks for the link.
    I wish you a great Valentines Day also, & a great week!

  2. I am glad you will continue on with the Pineberry Lane stitch. It is looking good. Pretty heart! My Mom and I will be in Williamsburg at a stitching retreat while the husband and dog will be home together. Enjoy your week!

    1. Thank you Robin! Ooooh, I hope you have a wonderful time at your retreat! It sounds great!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
