Cute, eh?! Imelda had made the same heart ornament last year and gave all of us a little kit with the wool and embellishments we needed. I'm not sure if anyone made it then, but I know I didn't have time, and I had completely forgotten about it until Gran brought hers out to work on. So Monday I packed up what I needed and took it all to work with me to work on during my lunch hour. Here it is, a few days later and I too have a finished heart!
I hung mine on the cafe curtain rod over my kitchen sink, but I knew it wouldn't photograph very well there at night--I'd probably just end up with a reflection of me taking a photo!
The pattern for this heart was in the January/February 2012 issue of Create & Decorate. Designer Tracy Souza of Plumcute Designs published different patterns in each issue for a year and called them the Bent Spoon Collection. I think I'm going to have to pull out my magazines and make a couple more! The hardest part is using only my mind and powers of concentration to bend the spoon.
