Victorian Hearts



I had intended to finish tatting this little, red heart and post it as a Valentine's wish. Obviously, I didn't make it. Here it is anyway along with a picture of the two I tatted last year. Last year's are both in size 20. The red is size 80 on the ball thread and size 20 on the shuttle thread. I'm not sure if I am happy with it yet. I wanted a little variation in the color, which I got. I also thought the bigger ring in the middle would take up some of the negative space. I think I'm okay with that. I believe I might use the larger ring at the bottom to hold a tassel for a bookmark. This one measure 1 1/4" across and 1 1/2" top to bottom. The others are about 2" both ways.

It is difficult to choose which one I like the best of the three but I am going to go with the variegated one. All are very pretty.

Creative experimenting - very cool! I like the idea of adding a tassel.

Hee hee....are you and Pam going from snowflakes to hearts now??

Does this pattern represent almost a year since you started designing?

I hope my memory isn't's just that this post reminds me how proud I am of you!

Thank you Madeline. I like the pink one best!
Thanks Yarnplayer. I believe I will add that tassel. Experimenting is fun.
I'm so glad you like them Tattingchic. They are very easy.
Yes, Lady Shuttle Maker. I guess we are - for a while. I actually have a special doily lined up for my next project. You are right. This does mark about a year. I need to get busy and design some more! Thanks for being proud of me.
