Hello everyone out there in tatting blogger-land. I just wanted to say thank you for being so welcoming to a fairly new blogger. I've only been blogging for just over 2 weeks and already I feel like I've made some new friends. So, as a way to say "Thank You" I am posting a pic of one of my favorite tatted heart patterns.
This particular heart pattern is from an old Workbasket (Feb 1985 - a reprint from an older Workbasket). I did it in DMC cotton perle size 12. I did a bunch of these so I could practice doing the Magic-Thread technique to hide the ends. My tatting pal, Doretha Albee, taught me how to do it. I sometimes like to put this heart on the front of a card to give to a friend. So this is my "card" to all of you.
Here are my favorite friendship sayings that go well with this heart/flower pattern.
"Friendship is the blossom of one's heart."
"If friends were flowers, I'd pick you."
"If friends were flowers, then I'd say, 'I really cherish my bouquet'."
"Friends are the flowers in the garden of life."
Thank you all for being so friendly to me. I'm really glad I started blogging about my favorite hobby. As always, your comments are welcome and don't forget to do the poll at the bottom of the page.
