CAL A quick Valentine Update

Hello to you...
Hope you're all well?
I'm much better now after my week of lurgy.
Its very wet and wild here at the moment and brr so cold!
Some poor people have experienced awful weather - my heart certainly goes out to them.
I thought I'd hook up a quick valentines treat for my fire place.
The pattern I used for the hearts is here from Attic24.
They were quick, easy and lots of fun to make.
In my last post I mentioned I had a few birthdays to make for this month, so I thought I'd show you what I've made...
Lily pad brooches.

A never ending Granny stripe snood...
and an alien gadget case.
Hopefully all of them will be gratefully received. We shall see.
So what else have I been doing this week? Hmm...
I know...

 I hooked up a cushion for the kitchen.
I used my Drops Paris yarn for the stripy front and Style Craft Grape for the back.
It's a lovely shot of colour for these grey days...
My garden this week...
wall flower,
seed head,

Hope that you've enjoyed a lovely week?
Now I'm off to see what everyone else has been up to this week....
