miniature heart garland: tiny love part 2

I was so impressed with how excited you were about my "tiny love" project for my children. We all love little things so much! Well, I have enlisted the help of Grandma Bunny as I squirrel away diminutive gifts and decorations for this year's Valentine's Day. Don't you think she's the perfect partner? Why, you're not familiar with my daughter's dear rabbit? Please read her history right here.

I know you'd like to string some mini hearts, too... a medium sized child would be a perfect helper. It's quite simple. I cut out pink and red hearts from a catalog (just the right paper weight) and put a single stitch through each one with red thread... well actually, Grandma B. helped me whip it up. Her sweet flannel paws wield a needle better than you'd ever imagine!


You might be curious about what she's got tucked in her wee bucket... first the tiny package, now the bucket! I'd be curious, too. I'll see if maybe we can show you the contents of each next time.

I'll also share the lovely woman who inspired this miniature collection. Some of you have already guessed. Her initials are T.T. More soon! Pin It

  3. I love the garland, but, oh!, the bunny....she reminds me of my "Emily-rabbit" that I had growing up...and still have, although she's not in near as fine of shape as she once was.

  11. I've been reading the Knitter's Almanac, and you sound so like Elizabeth Zimmermann with the lovely familiarity of this phrase:
    "I know you'd like to string some mini hearts, too... a medium sized child would be a perfect helper. It's quite simple."
    Thanks for sharing your sweetness with us.
