Hearts Entwined

It seems a bit early to post for Valentine's Day, but realistically if you are making something, you need some lead time to get it done. You've only got a month left!  Last year I posted a tutorial for this cute mug mat:
Lots of you have acquired the free pattern through Craftsy, making it one of their top downloads. With her usual energy and creative spark, Jeanne Kaye Speight of Federicton has taken the design one step further and made this adorable wall hanging - kind of a his and hers.
Jeanne Kaye writes, "I loved the heart you designed, so I enlarged it, and did it in opposites for a wall hanging inside my front door for St. Valentine's Day.  Love it!  Thanks for another great pattern."  It's just sweet!  I am not sure how large Jeanne Kaye made her hearts, but I am sure we could ask if anyone is interested in knowing.  Thanks so much for sharing this,Jeanne Kaye - you rock! If you'd like to make your own spiral heart, the pattern is free here.


  1. Your mug mat is adorable Karen. I heart it!

  2. That's a great design! I missed it last year - we were away for our son's wedding, which was a very romantic occasion too.
