Motif 21 - 22: Sad hearts

This morning I realized that it was Valentine's day.  I have some tatted hearts, and yesterday would have been a good day to show them.  Still better late than never.

The first heart is Tatman's 'Modern Heart', done in DMC 20.  The inward facing picots are straightforward, but I had to keep reminding myself not to flip the around.

Next are the is the Sweetheart earrings from the Yarnplayer's Boutique Tatting book, done in DMC cordonette 20.  These were an easy tat, and a great way to make use of my bead stash.

These are blue hearts, which I think is appropriate for today.  Today, the internet tatting community is full of sadness for the passing of the Tatting Goddess.  I did not know her personally, but I learned a lot from her web pages when I first started tatting seriously years ago.  Thank you Tatting Goddess.
