Went to Woodlawn...

Went to the Woodlawn Needlework Exhibit on Sunday. It's smaller than last year, but needlework is very much a leisure-time/good-economic-times activity, and we're not quite out of the economic woods just yet. Lovely, lovely things inside, though. Managed to *not* buy anything in the gift store this year, though. Thus, on Tuesday, whilst I was going through my craft room, I found the 2013 Woodlawn program - and the kit I bought then. So I started it: I'm about halfway through the Pearl Cotton #5 rows now. Yay?

... and a White Lies Designs Shapely Tee (free pattern!) from the orange Chantal (not pictured because I already bought it):

I want to make this!

... and this!

Also funny (and I should get one):

Here's mine at this point. Since I'm doing the laceweight version, I'm the most behind:

Granny Square Crochet Hearts

Did you know you can make Granny Square crochet hearts? I didn't either:

However, it's pretty easy. Make a granny square....

... then add some bumps...

... and ta-dah! Heart!!

Add a picot edge, and they're really pretty!

(Yes, I realize I should have put these up a month ago, but it's up now!)
