my creative space - heart bunting

My friend Elizabeth was admiring my tiny heart bunting which is strung across one of my wall units and wondered if I would make her some to hang in her bedroom.

I have a little box of crochet hearts that is so full the hearts are spilling out - in quiet moments the thing that pleases me most is hooking another heart! What a quandary - I have hearts a plenty, no project planned for them, I would happily make something for my dear friend but (it's a big but) can I part with my tiny cute baby hearts...........

I have decided that as today is my linky post with Kirsty at 'my creative space' I am going to put my Billie blanket to one side and make some bunting for Elizabeth. I'm going to stop being a mean girl with an unhealthy attachment to cute little hearts - but they are so lovely.

I spread them out across my table to decide on the colours, should they be random or in a more orderly sequence - I think order won.

The next thing is to crochet all the tails into little loops. I will then crochet a long chain and attach the little loop hearts as I go.

It will take longer than I thought to complete as it takes quite a lot of time to crochet the loops and I think I might need to make a few more pink hearts to fit with my sequence.

When it's finished I think it will look adorable -  this is going to be very difficult to give away....................
