This is Karey Solomon's pattern from Hearts Belong to Tatting. It is my newest favourite heart, for it is fun to tat and pleasing in texture, especially with beads. Also, it is not tiny, being about two inches or so across. I am happier with a bit of a larger pattern, for I find the small ones often to be frustratingly fiddly (descriptor of the week!).
I just realized that one of the three threads - and all were leftovers languishing on bobbins - is the very last of her HDT. It is fitting that her pattern it is tatted with the last of her thread.
There are two variegated and one plain green thread here, all #40; it is amazing that it works! You just never know.
The beads are well matched to the odd bluish undertones of Kareys thread, and are from Crazy Mom. Perfect!
