crochet, Other nutty stuff

Sharing hearts!

I had the most encouraging encounter not too long ago. I met a lovely lady that is spreading love by handing out hearts. ❤ And I got one too!

Anneke from Hartedeeltjes has made it her mission in life to make a difference with something small. She makes small cards with a little crochet heart and she leaves them in the train, in shops, in parks, in the library, anywhere and everywhere for total strangers to find. She has left over 6000 hearts in random places over the past three years. It’s a small token of love to make the world a better place.

But it does not stop there, Anneke has set herself a goal, a bath tub full of crochet hearts so that everyone can literally “bathe in love”. How cool is that? Needless to say Anneke can not make the 100.000 hearts needed to fill the bathtub all on her own. That is why she has help from people all over the country to help her making hearts. On the Hartedeeltjes Facebook page you can see the progress of making those thousands of hearts!

Would you like to contribute to Anneke’s cause? There is a little heart pattern on Hartedeeltjes to make teeny tiny hearts between 2cm and 5cm, like small water droplets. You can make one or more small hearts and drop them off at one of five places in The Netherlands or Belgium, or contact Anneke for her home address to send them to her directly.

It’s the small things in life that make all the difference. Have a blessed day.

With love,

Esther

    1. Hi Esther,
      I’m Anneke, the initiator of ‘Bathe in Love’. I’m very sorry that I didn’t answerd your question yet. I hope that you still want to crochet hearts for the project. Here is the information.
      Unfortunately can’t upload the drawing of the pattern. On my website (www.hartedeeltjes.nl) you can find the drawing).
      If you have any questions you can email me contact@hartedeeltjes.nl
      Lots of love, Anneke

      Crochet Hearts to fill the tub.
      Just a few points for clarification:
      – Color: The color of the heart is free, all colors are welcome, even hearts of course yarn.
      – Material: cotton, acrylic, wool is all ok.
      – Size: between 2 and 5 cm (about 1 and two inches)
      The hearts are basically the same as water droplets. Many hearts fill the tub with love.
      – Timeframe: There is nog ending of the project, you can crochet hearts whenerver you
      like. I hope in Sept 2017 I will get off with the tub fort the first time. There can, while
      touring also be hooked even more delicious.
      – Address: If you send me an email when you want to send the hearts, I will pass you the
      adress.

      The Patter:
      Magic ring
      Ch 3
      3 TR in the ring
      3 DC in the ring
      Ch 1
      TR
      Ch1
      3 DC
      3 TR
      Ch 3
      SL in the ring
      Stretch the wire, cut it of and tighten it.
      Tighten magic ring
      Pull the two wires tight and put in two knots.
      Now you can cut off the ends.

      Thank you very much for your support!!

  4. Esther I was wondering if the crochet along videos for the Nuts about Squares project will be taken down from YouTube when you begin another one? I will print out the instructions if that is what will happen so I can complete it. And not be rushed Thank you so much for all the work you have done ,the videos are amazing.
