More hearts

 Flower Heart from Kelly at Tatfully Yours

I’m still making Kelly’s Flower Heart earrings.  A few days ago as I was leaving the house I had another thought, what about putting a doodad in the center?  I think they came out very well. This pair is in Lizbeth #644 Boysenberry dark size 20. I wore a pair of them to work one day and two people asked if I would make them some.  The only real question then was “what color?”

I tried a pair in Lizbeth #123 Grape Pizzaz in size 20.  I don’t think they look as pretty as those in a solid color.  In fact I had to make two pair because these hearts use so little thread that only a little of the color change was seen so that the first two I made didn’t look like they belonged together.  One was mostly pink with very little purple and the other was mostly purple with no pink.  If I hadn’t known better I would have thought I used two different color of threads.  I made two more hearts paying close attention to the color change so they would look like they belonged together.  Then I only took a picture of one pair before I gave them away.
The only other tatting I’ve gotten done is Jane’s TIAS.  I still don’t have a clue as to what it might be.  My husband saw and thought it might be a baby carriage and I know several other people doing the TIAS has had that thought, too.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.  Jane is posting day 7 tomorrow.

I have a lot of fun reading every one’s comments as they participate in the TIAS, both about what they think it might be but also about the weather they are having, where-ever in the world they are. It’s hot and wet in Australia and cold and snowy in England.  Here in Kansas we’ve had a lot of ups and downs in the weather. Yesterday it was 75° F, today it’s about 40° and a chance of snow tonight.  We definitely could use the moisture in whatever form we can get it! 
Enjoy your day in whatever weather you may be having, along with a little tatting if you can.

  1. I have dooddads just like that, and some with "diamonds" in the center, they would work perfectly for earrings like this, thanks, yours are great.

    good luck on the moisture, we got 10+" of snow last night, so no going to work today, it is too slippery underneath as we had freezing drizzle yesterday before the snow.

  2. Your Kelly's Flower Heart earrings are all so pretty (with or without doodad). As for the weather, I agree with Mr. Longfellow. *grins*

    Hope you enjoyed your tatting today!
