Nectarine Heart - Motif #11

I finally had a chance to tat with some of the new (HDT) Hand Dyed Threads I got from Yarnplayer (Marilee). The color is Nectarine and the thread has such pretty colors in it. I can't wait until the Nectarine set of solid colors arrives, I bought some of these too!

I found the prettiest Heart to tat with this thread. The Heart was designed by Sandra. Sandra has a slide show of some of her tatting on her site and there are some lovely crosses and bookmarks, earrings and two snoods. If you get a chance, check it out.



I've been going through all my tatting books, mostly the really old ones, looking for something different to tat. I saw many edgings that would look nice as bookmarks and littls tatting bits that would look good for earrings. That's what I do when I am too tired to tat, I'll just look at the books for a little bit and dream about what I could tat.

this little heart is very pretty. I have some Nectarine, but haven't used it yet. I guess I better get busy!

I love your heart, Carol! I saw it on eTatters last night. Sandra had emailed me the pattern, too, and when I saw yours I had to tat it, too! So this morning I did. I love the Nectarine. Good job!

Hi Tattycat & Tattingchic! Thanks for your compliments on Sandra's heart that I tatted. Isn't that Nectarine color awesome. And the heart is so pretty. It is a quick and easy heart to tat. Please post your heart too, Tattingchic, when you finish it. It's fun to see it tatted in diffent colors of thread.

So pretty! I get a big thrill when I see what people have made from the HDT.
It's great to have tatting books, isn't it? Not so long ago, all I had was reprints of very old books. It's so wonderful to see all the new ideas people are coming up with now.

That is so pretty, Carol. The HDT really comes into it's own in tatting!
