A little heart



Just feeling in the mood for small projects as I'm at that 'can't settle' stage before the trip over the pond!!!!

I thought I'd try the Flurry Heartache out to see if I could improve on it or even follow it myself!!!! This time I didn't use beads as it's for another project - perhaps and maybe that wouldn't work with beads. I MISS my beads.

    It looks very elegant, actually - no picots, no beads, let the design do the work.

  6. I like the flower that is created in the centre !
    But the sequence of elements baffles me. I need to stare harder and jolt my brain to rummage through my repertoire (still woefully lacking) of tatting techniques . Wonder if I'll be able to figure it out ?!
    Wish me luck ;-)

    1. Jane, this is just a game I play to challenge myself in my tatting learning process. It forces me to recall & apply that I've learnt and then check to see how far it is correct :-)
      Thank you - I've downloaded the pattern but have deliberately not read it so far. Will now sit down to try and 'solve' the puzzle .

    3. Dear Jane,
      This Really was a Very Tough one ! I even cheated - looked at the techniques you had used ;-)) With the SCMR, And the variegated colours as clues, I still could not decipher the sequence. Now, sitting with the image on a big screen, I have Finally 'cracked' the Jane Code ! It took me over 2 days ;-)))
      This is a Very Clever design, as are most of your patterns.
      I've said it before, but never tire of reiterating, that joining your 2014 TIAS was the Best learning experience in tatting - it leap-frogged to another dimension, with the techniques learned - a 'whole new world'.
      Thank you again, for sharing all your knowledge, skills, designs, ....
      I keep coming back to refer to your tutorials & many of my posts have a link to your Tips & Techniques pages ;-)
