While looking at my blocking problem I've been trying to find a heart that pleased me for my granddaughter's wedding in June. I shrunk down the butterfly heart to 2 ds between all picots and changed the point to a Josephine knot. One heart as requested by my youngest granddaughter is right at one and a fourth inches in size. I attempted joining hearts by a tiny ring but decided I liked just joining third picots instead. (One done each way in the two joins in the photo) I am rather pleased with the result.
Anyway this will be applied over a round of lace made from her mother's wedding dress and a round of lace made from mine, ending up on her bouquet. Then 3 or 5 little hearts will be on picks in each bridesmaids bouquets. Ordered size 40 Elizabeth thread in natural today so I can get started on the real thing!!
Her dad is in charge of the flowers and has ordered 60 hearts. I have until June. At 45 minutes for a heart I shall be busy for awhile.
