Heart Fillet Block

Good Evening my crochet friends!

I have been working like a mad woman trying to get this heart filet block done. I am not really into hearts but this one spoke to me.  I think I am going to make a couple of each one, seam them up and make a pillow or throw for Valentine's Day, not in red or pink but in a soft camel silk sock yarn.
Its a little delicate to work with but it was perfect for this project!

I got this pattern from I'm Hooked!

Here is the link to the first heart....

Here is the second heart block with the link...

here is mine!

It's not blocked and I just finished it and snapped the picture.  The block is about 10X10 which is a great size for the block alone.  It would be beautiful in a frame with a pretty mat, or as a doily or coaster.  Placemats or runners even.  That gives me an idea I didn't think of...what about connecting them and making a Valentine Day runner for my kitchen table?
I think that would be sweet. 

I will show the other when I get it done. 
This is my 1st attempt at this heart filet.  It took me all afternoon but I have a lot on my mind and I couldn't keep up with the pattern.  Its an easy pattern but one you have to follow or your heart will be wonky. 
I think I am going to really like filet crochet. I love how the pattern appears.
I am pretty proud of it. 
Now, I can link it up!

Have a good rest of the evening.
It's crochet time!
Happy Hookin!
