The first tatted heart (left) is a pattern by Ruth Perry, entitled Yellow Heart. The smaller heart is a pattern by Birgit Phelps named Sweetheart. I find them really sweet and absolutely love to tat them. The hearts were tatted in Milford #40 variegated pink/white.
In the last couple of weekends, I did some lessons with a lady who's very talented at beading. She taught me to wrap beads around a carbochon using peyote stitches. Something very interesting and a little challenging for me but this is the result of those sessions. I'm totally blown away by the outcome (and no, the image below doesn't do it justice!).
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. XOXO
