"I started photographing my domestic world and writing not just about what I had made,
but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

Take Heart with Teresa Kasner

It is a joy to meet new friends through blogging!  One of my first new friends is the talented artist, Teresa Kasner.
For several months I have admired the beautiful free crochet heart pattern Teresa has posted on her blog.
Over the last few days I gathered the materials to give the pattern a try, and really enjoyed the whole creative process! 
Although I made some mistakes, I am excited about the results of my first effort and
I have visions of making many more hearts!
Thank you, Teresa!!!

And thank you again, Teresa,  for these beautiful hand-painted cards!
If you haven't met Teresa, please check out her blog and enjoy all she beautifully and generously shares!


  1. Wow, Gracie! What a treat to see visit your blog and find that you have enjoyed the heart pattern and the cards you ordered from me! Good job on the heart.. you'll enjoy it when it's got a medium stiffening - your Christmas tree will love all your hearts on it! :-)
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Your pattern is so well written and photographed, Teresa! I was trying to crochet into a chain instead of around it at one point on my first try, but your good pictures are helping me correct my errors. I am up to 4 hearts so far. So much fun! (: Thanks again!

  2. Hi Gracie! YAY! I'm so happy to be discovering your blog. :D I just adore that crocheted heart. I'm learning crochet right now and that's motivation. I can see myself wanting to make a whole garland of red and pink hearts like that. :)

    1. So far I have made four red ones, and am learning more about crochet structure in the process. Teresa has done a fabulous job for me in printing the directions as she has. Her pictures of the different stages on lined paper helps me understand what I need to do and I can lay out what I have done on my print out of her pattern and it is the same size!

  3. Your crocheted heart looks so pretty! And right in time for Valentine's day :)

    1. They are fun and beautiful, Rebekka!I hope you will enjoy making some. (:
