  2. Really beautiful heart. I love all the different elements that add a lot of visual interest. Call me crazy, but in the first picture outlined in green thread I see the face of the Grinch. In the second pic I don't see it so much, probably because the green blends more with the background. Would love the pattern.

  3. Hmmmm, so interesting ! I saw that 'face' too ;-) In South India, there is a dance form called Kathakali, where there is elaborate face makeup & costume (with symbolism attached to colours, placement,form, etc). At first glance, I was reminded of it : https://www.google.co.in/search?q=kathakali+makeup&client=tablet-android-samsung&espv=1&tbm=isch&tbo=u&sboxchip=Images&source=univ&sa=X&ei=Dy_gVL4907e4BKG6gsgL&ved=0CB0QsAQ&biw=962&bih=601

    Trying to count the numerous techniques you've used .... JR, JK, SR, Tallies, encapsulation (?)! Besides the usual chains, picots, rings !!! Wow. Have I missed any ?

    2. I think you got them all I had the inter part done then I saw your blog, and thought, I better finish it.
      I checked out the face and wow I see what you mean, I guess this gives way to a new project huh?
      I kind of liked the using of different techniques because it is so small and felt like it was not a chore to finish. I love the brown monster doily but not sure if I can make it :) it takes too much time hard to delegate and go on to something else.

    3. I am in a similar frame of mind wrt large doily projects. I want to learn so many techniques, try out so many things, that starting a large project, howsoever tempting, is a no-no at present.

      I felt the same about using techniques in the heart projects, Carollyn ! They are so tiny, that one can easily experiment :-)

  5. So pretty. Love in a garden. Yes, good idea to use a lot of techniques on a small project so they're not too daunting.

    1. Yes and the heart shape is good too, because you have to go back up the other side.

  6. Very effective - phew but such a lot of work, sort of see a face but really flowers stand out the most.
