Three daisies were tatted first, then the bottom part of the heart frame followed by the heart border. This heart pattern is found in Teri Dusenbury's book Tatting Hearts. I love its name and how it looks in this thread Altin Basak Size 50 Col. 328. Have you tatted this pattern?
There were 13 participants in this giveaway. The three winners picked using the random number generator are Cassandra Ryan, Madtatter80 and Craftie Sylvie. Please email me with your mailing address and let me know which ice drop you would like me to send you. Thank you all for participating.
I am into green threads these days. This green is Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 681 Pistachio Green Light. The pattern is from Lovely Tatting Doilies for Spring and Summer by Lee Hye-oon. Many more rounds to go.
Margaret posted tatted hearts earlier and that reminded me of tatting some hearts for Valentines. This is one is called Gypsy Heart on page 23 of Tatting Hearts by Teri Dusenbury. I used Flora Size 20 threads in 3 colours - Col. 211, 224 & 234.
The black thread is the same Japanese Size 20 thread as Ice drop #1. I found some large glass drops roughly 3cm across. You can modify Diane's pattern to fit your glass drop. The first round of 6 rings or the base, should fit the diameter of your glass drop. I was trying to make a less feminine Ice Drop to hang on AAA's car rear view mirror. This one measures 6 by 11cm.
The main focal charm here is the artist palette pendant. Left murano is the Shoreline Sea and on the right is the Pink Butterfly Kisses. The two clips are the Dainty Bow. Also to the left of the Shoreline Sea Murano is the Abundance of Love charm. To the right of the Butterfly Kisses Murano, is the Dazzling Daisy charm. The bracelet is the Fancy Purple CZ Moments Silver with Signature Clasp.
This cool beauty was made with the blue pea flowers and coconut. Food at this vegetarian restaurant was also good. I especially liked the blue flower tofu with black truffle wild rice. I did not get a photo of that.
In the latest Pandora Valentine's Day 2019 collection, I decided on 3 items which are all shown here: Moments Silver Bracelet, Pandora Shine Heart, Limited Edition Arrow of Love dangle charm and the Gate of Love dangle charm. I am also using the Icon of Nature charm which was a Christmas gift from my sister.
From left: Seeds of Elegance clip, Vintage Heart charm, Arrow of Love dangle, Lavish Heart charm, Gate of Love dangle, Icon of Nature and Seeds of Elegance clip. Pandora Shine is perfect for the CNY week. I decided not to get the Good Fortune Coin because it was too shiny gold or the Carp because it was tiny.
