|Tatted in #20 Flora, Navy Blue, plus iridescent #11 delica seed beads.|
Of course this is not the only possibility. The number of repeats of the hearts could be anything between 2 and 10! I must say I'm pretty happy with this motif now. Have to now think of a name for it, as is the tradition. (My brain cells are getting a little hyper being worked so hard. LOL)
I have to confess one thing though: I added the beads because I saw how Fox's motifs and pendants turned out so much more refined with beads. Thanks, Fox, for the inspiration. Although, I do have to say that I have an inherent fear of using beads in tatting.
I really had a lot of fun designing something around this 10-point doodad. Was challenging but I'm glad I did it. I'm probably not going to stop here, as I found more doodads (but in a craft store, of course!). OK, I'll leave you now with these...
