Tatted Lace

The Changing Hearts!
I was visiting Land of Laces that invites anyone to add a heart pattern, I sometimes have a hard time understanding the translator and so I think she wants you to change her heart pattern around, but not sure.

So this is her pattern if you click on her blog and the heart on her blog above, and I added pearls to the edge. 

This time I added all picots to her heart pattern. I think this was her challenge let me know what you think, when you go to her blog?
It is so interesting how color and picots and beads change things around.

So I added the 8 clover motifs, and so I won't get confused, I marked the right side (with ribbon) as to connect to doily properly, along with rewriting my directions as not to get mixed up with the 2 others!

One other tip I  learned, is to make the motif as much as I can, so I don't have to hold the entire doily while I work .

To show How quickly this grows in size 40 I laid it on top of the Daisy doily for fun!
FYI, I started the TIAS but don't have the picture ready yet :(

  2. Love the pics you've taken & the tatting you've done !
    I like your tip about the motifs. I do that too, whenever there are motifs to join to a larger piece, including in the crochet afghan. Easier to handle the smaller motif than manipulate the larger piece.

    Visited the site & it led me back to your Heart patterns ! Hopefully I can come up with something & participate too. I like her challenge :-)

  10. Hello!
    Great work! Hearts with picots or beads -it's good idea!
    In my challenge you can show any heart motives, if you make it between January 5 - February 14. As much of hearts as you want. Beaded hearts, crochet, any tatted patterns, cards, pillows with heart, or... whatever you want with heart motif :-)
    So you can submit these hearts too :-)
