100 crocheted hearts for a very special birthday.

I've written about Aunt Grace before and how Frannie and I decorate outside her front window.  Aunt Grace celebrated her 100th birthday this past Sunday, so the two of us surprised her with all of these hearts.  When she looks out her living room window (far left in photo), this is the happy and colorful sight she sees.  Aunt Grace was a top-notch crocheter and seamstress herself.  She has given me so many vintage sewing supplies/ribbon/buttons/etc. over the years that this is my way of saying thank you.


P.S. - The crochet heart pattern is from Pink Fluffy Warrior.  You can find the tutorial here.  All the hearts are crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver and a size "H" hook.  This yarn can withstand any weather and it does not fade!  I strung the hearts together with a clear nylon thread.
