If you wondered what the heart looked like on Christina's Heart, a link I got from Bellaonline, which is overseen now by Georgia Seitz, this is it! I used the shaft of a crochet hook as the picot guage and since the picots are only 1 ds apart, I just left it in place and made continous picots which keeps them all the same size and creates this sort of figure 8 in the picot when you slide the hook out. Blocking it would take care of that but I kind of like it. I was tempted to crochet around the edge but kept forgetting and cutting off the thread. Maybe another time.
Crazy Mom posted the link to this heart yesterday but I'd already tatted it from a printout I had from last year. It was only when I went to block it last night that I found my mistake. Do you see it?
Hint: It's leaning to the left because it's a bit heavy on that side.
I have a binder full of heart patterns from the Internet. I've tatted most of them but there are still a few I want to tat. Nell's Old Glory Heart is one. I even bought red, white and blue sewing thread for it. I have no clue why sewing thread unless that was the fastest way I could get the right colored thread in 2001. Martha Ess's Two Hearts as One pattern is the other one. This is the link to one of the hearts. You'll need to visit the 2nd link to make the complete heart. Both patterns have been around since at least 2001 and I wanted to tat them from the get-go but I haven't. Why? Because I will have to really concentrate and sit still! LOL! And I'm making them for ME so it's like...no hurry...I'll get around to it! So if someone would please send me a Round TUIT, I'll tat them! It's been TEN years, for cryin' out loud!
I only need to hear from two more winners from the Blogaversary celebration with their mailing address and I'll be wrapping up the OWOH tour on Thursday/Friday so then I can get back to the 25 motif challenge. I've been eyeballing it but not too closely or I won't get everything sent out in a reasonable time! I already started knitting something last night to get my hands busy for a bit. It might turn into someone's birthday gift so I don't want to post it. But you all know how SLOWLY I knit so maybe it'll turn into a Christmas gift instead.
Take some time today to tell those you love that you LOVE them and for those you wouldn't feel comfortable saying "I Love You", then tell them something nice about themselves that you like or admire or deeply respect. We should let people know we care about them. It makes them blossom!
