Last Minute Valentine

Somehow February had snuck on me and before I knew it, Valentine’s day was here! I completely forgot to get Valentine’s for Little Duck to give out at her babysitter’s. I have no excuses, it wasn’t a terribly hectic month. I just have developed a terrible memory and general lack of awareness for what is going on around me apparently.

So when I didn’t realize my error until 10:03pm on February 13th, I panicked. Walmart had closed and there were no stores in our area that stayed open later than that. I ran to my craft cupboard and found some white and pink card stock and pink Bernat cotton 4ply yarn. I could save this. Luckily I had just pinned a post by http://www.kundhi.com/blog/2010/01/22/tiny-crochet-heart-pattern/¬†on crocheting little hearts. I whipped up a few pink hearts, Cut and pasted some cardstock together, and Voila! It looks like I planned this all along!

Phew! That was close!

I left the ties long on the back. Come some the kids tied the hearts on as a braclet. I used it as a hair tie for Little Duck.
