I hope your Valentine’s Day is full of love and joy. To help you celebrate I have created this fun little crochet pattern and a new coloring page.

The PDF of the coloring page can be downloaded from my blog, I have also included it as the 3rd page of the PDF version of the “All My Love Heart” pattern available in my Ravelry Shop.
I colored my page with my Staedler Noris Club colored pencils. I have found these to be a great inexpensive pencil for coloring. I also really like the Anti-Breaking System these pencils have. I can get super sharp points without losing chunks of the lead.
All My Love Heart Motif Pattern
This little heart is a great way to add some love to your crochet projects, or work a bunch up in a variety of colors to decorate handmade cards. Needing only a little over 8 yards of worsted weight yarn to make, they are a prefect way to use up those bits of yarn scraps.
