These 3 hearts flew off to Judy in celebration of her birthday last week. I'm afraid it is very much belated but better late than never. Top left was done in Flora Size 20 (Col. 41); Top right tatted in Yarnplayer's Peace HDT Size 20; Bottom tatted in Ladyshuttlemaker's Weeping Cherry Size 20 silk HDT.
After I sent those hearts off to Judy, I continued tatting more. Above in white Anchor cotton threads Size 2. Yes 2 not 20. Compare the size of the heart with those in size 30 and 40 threads below.
Bottom left tatted in Yarnplayer's Garden Afternoon Size 30 and bottom right in Milford Mercer Indigo Size 40. I always thought that indigo was more blue than purple but the label for that thread says indigo. It does look more purple to me.
