Button Heart in Easter Egg HDT

I have tatted Susan Taliaferro's button heart again using Lady Shuttle Maker's Easter Egg HDT in size 20. The button is a pretty pink antique one from my grandmother's collection. Sorry it doesn't show up so well in the scan.

This is proof there is no such thing as a mistake, just design variations! At the bottom center chain on the first round, I was supposed to tat 5-5-5. Instead I tatted 5-5 leaving me one picot short of joining two rings on the 2nd row. So... I had to design a new point. I don't know why it decided to come out with frilly picots. I guess I was thinking how pretty it would be in a baby girl's room and it just morphed into frilly! This one may go into my Etsy shop, which is almost empty now if I can decide how much it is worth.

Oh, the pattern can be found on the Tatting Pattern Calendar on February 20th. Thanks again Susan.
