Growing up, I learned to play the piano, taking lessons for well over ten years. I had a brief stint at learning the viola in middle school and sang in my middle school girls chorus. I continued singing in high school, auditioning for and singing with both Chauntaires, a mixed performing choir and Crimson Colony, our high school show choir.

I love listening to music and often do as I crochet. It provides a soothing, rhythm, allowing the fibers to flow through my fingers and off my hook. A spectacular form of meditation and mental health therapy.

We often think of February as the month of heart awareness and love. Children give out valentines and people spend a small fortune on flowers. But wouldn’t it be amazing to share something you’ve made with the one you love? Something that won’t whither and die. Something they can hang up and be reminded that your two hearts beat as one?

The Heartbeat Wall Hanging is made using a background color and a detail/border color, with the Bass and Treble Clefs coming together to form a heart in the center. Simply add dowels to the top and bottom, crochet a hanger and boom, you have an amazing wall hanging.

I am sharing the chart for the Heartbeat Wall Hanging with you here on the blog. The written instructions, along with my chart are included in the downloadable pdf in my Etsy store!
