Cross stitch hearts pillow

A lovely cross stitch pillow with 12 hearts finished. Each one is different. Easy, fast and nice to do project.

Be careful to measure enough allowance around. I let about 15 points – pattern is 153/153, I calculated 183/183 and after another 2 cm all around. I started from left side down, made the frame first and then the heart. Colour is dark red 814 from DMC . I think that cream on white will look great too, or black… it will be a repeat for sure.

Beautiful pattern from

Thank you Marie.

I have a heart pattern collection and yours is on top.Good for Valentine gifts too, one heart for a small potpourri or a pin cushion.

Still have to do the actual pillow, now is just the front . In fact 3 or 4 ready to be done pillows wait on “to do“ list. I am at work from 7.30 to 17.30 and “to do“ list is loooong.

Have a nice day ladies.

Original hook for Romanian Point Lace

If you have difficulties to crochet the cord for Romanian Point Lace the problem can be the hook.

As you can see from photos the hook is very thin all along length.These are the original hooks (from Romania) used for RPL. Small number crochet hooks from England or Italy (no 0.75 or 1) are small only at the end.

Try to find hooks similar to these, very thin on all length. Even here, in RPL country, only one factory still  produce this kind of hooks.

Have a good day ladies.
