** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

  12. I stumbled upon your blog through SU and really love your Valentine hearts. I shared it over at our Ravelry group for the Valentine swap projects. I thought a person could use a six-pack plastic pop ring for the base if you didn't have a dollar store bracelet.
