Flower Bouquet Heart from "Tat's Amore'"

Here is my rendition of Martha's Flower Bouquet Heart tatted in Flora size 20 and DMC Cebelia size 20. It isn't exactly like Martha's, of course, but I am proud of it. I learned three new techniques on this one! I will confess to pulling out and redoing the blue flower as my picots were too big and thus the flower was too big. I also had trouble sizing and attaching the stems. I made my first ever SCMR! Yippee! I never thought I would do it. I had always stayed away from patterns that used them, and now I wonder why.

I think when I get through making hearts from this book, they may all go in a frame for my Victorian bedroom.

These are gorgeous, fabulous and wonderful! Yay for Martha for creating such neat designs and Yay for you for learning new techniques!
Well done Laura!

Thanks! That flower bouquet one was a challenge, but we both like a challenge, huh?
Tag, is it? I guess I better check your site to see what you are up to!

WOW! I am so jealous... I've only looked at the book! I must get out of my funk!

Lovely hearts. You certainly know how to pick and match the colours.

Thanks Diane and Jon. Diane, get out of that funk and get busy! Jon, I mostly have to use what colors I have! Just dumb luck!
