Well, I've got to say, this is mighty appropriate!
In the design course, we were to take a snowflake pattern and come up with a heart from the pattern. So, I looked at what I had dome with the pink motif and it was derived from a snowflake shape until I had to remove two of the repeats to make a square.
Using the square, I modified it furthur and this is what happened. No doubt this is beginner's luck, never to be repeated, as I knew exactly what to do and skipped the software stage entirely, going only to my shuttles to produce the heart. Sorry Sharon!
The software I have - for free - is for a PC and I find it too time-consuming and difficult to use. Until I a) get an Apple or b) find new software, I am going to have to use photos blown up or hand draw patterns. I just cannot take the time I need to use the existing programme, and believe me, I am NOT a quitter! I have given it my best, gung ho effort!
On looking at this design again, I think I might try it with the silver do-hickey in the centre at the top of the heart instead of so low... I think that would be better....
Miranda suggested I tat something in memory of Mish. Thank you, my friend, it did indeed help a lot.
