Design by Karey Solomon #29/100
Thought I would see if muscle memory had assimilated this pattern. With some trepidation I pulled out Karey’s booklet and ... YES! I sailed through it this time! (There is a MAJOR error, but this does not even bother me as the heart LOOKS all right. I will NOT get upset...I will NOT get upset...)
I used Valdani #12 as a break from all the #80 thread I have been tatting with lately. Love the colour.
Months ago, I was given some marvellous tips from Victats and Martha about this pattern, and was able to cobble together the first hearts, after way too much wailing and gnashing of teeth. This one - not so bad!
I found this in a shop while visiting a friend and returned to see it three times before I finally succumbed. It is the perfect container for all tatting gear and more refined than the very small Altoid tin that I have had with me constantly for the past year.
The old holder did not have room for scissors,
so I am super pleased with this:
How perfect is this!
