Hooking love this Valentine!

Morning all, I missed a post yesterday, whoops....had a bit going on.  An appointment first thing which I can share more on later and then a whole day of excitement with my iron and just had to be done.
In the evening I managed to get my heart bunting finished.  I had originally started it with cotton yarn and a 3 hook but changed my mind, as us girls can, and used pure wool and a 5 hook.  This made for slightly bigger hearts but I found it a lot less fiddly to crochet.

I have used teal, red and cream for my combination as they're my favourite colours.  Here's a picture of it up on my mirror...all ready for Valentines Day next week.

Not the best of photographs....I was trying not to get myself in it!  LOL. Difficult with mirrors!
If you would like details of the pattern you can catch the link in my earlier post here.  With thanks again to Happy Berry for sharing her pattern.  x

What have you got planned today?
I have one of my boys off again today....I don't know what it is about this time of year but it seems to be one thing after another just now.  Still he seems to be a bit brighter than he was first thing.  
I have some Valentine card ideas I'm wanting to have a go at, the usual jobs and maybe even some baking today or tomorrow.  It only remains for me to wish you all the best this Thursday.
I thought I'd leave you with made me smile!

And some times neither do I!
