Some of my readers asked about the basket full of crocheted hearts
in the background of my last post photos.
(I did a post about these a couple of years ago, but it's time to do another.)
These pretty hearts were originally used as pincushions or drawer sachets.
The largest was probably a decorative pillow on a bed.
Some are in good condition and still have their satin ribbon.
Others are rather old and tattered looking.
But I love them all.
A few were found at estate sales stuck full of hundreds of pins and needles.
And I pulled every single one out.
Let's just say it was a good thing I was up to date on my tetanus shot.

I did not make the hearts in my collection. However, I do have a pattern for
crocheted pineapple hearts from an old issue of Annie's Crochet Newsletter.
