. . . luv 'n stitches for our tired old world

My Designs

As this blog grows, you will find my original knitting patterns and projects listed here. Many are literally heart-shaped by design. Others integrate heart motifs and/or evoke expressions of the heart apart from the appearance of hearts. Truly, regardless of shape or style, whether offered for purchase or free, my beating heart went stitch-by-stitch into designing each and every one.

My hope is that you will share the love and enjoy re-creating my designs…  🙂  ❤


 Knitting is in my heart… Psalm 139:13 

“For you created my inmost being; 
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

    • Hi Anna 🙂 Thank you for your kind words. Initially, my heart was ready to knit first—before my fingers finally “clicked” into gear. So perhaps sometime you will try it again and connect the stitches 🙂 ♥ ❤

    • Thanks MM 😀 I’ve not yet met Trini @WP, but my Bramble♥tini is named for the Bramble knit stitch and because it is tiny 🙂 ♥ ❤

      • Oh my gosh! So silly of me! I love that! I love that stitch name! I knit but nothing like what you do! I’m still knitting a blanket for my nephew I started when he was born. I’m embarrassed to say he’s 8. Oh wow! ❤ too funny!

        • LoL … no worries, MM 🙂 Blankets are major time commitment projects. I’ve yet to knit one. Keep stitching your nephew’s blanket… I’m sure he’ll love it whenever you’re ready—and maybe knit a little Sweetie♥Heart appliqué for a finishing touch, too 🙂 ♥ ❤

    Hi Jackie! I wanted to thank you personally for taking the time to read my post about my momma’s cancer relief crowdfunding campaign. It means the world to me and my brother that you took time out of your day to read it. If you are able please please please reblog our post or share our cause wherever you can. I know that just in simply sharing it you could make a tremendous impact on our small, humble family. Thank you for your consideration.
