Heart's Desire

Yesterday I finished Susan K. Fuller's Heart's Desire in Coral Reef by Tatskool. I love the way it turned out! I also made another Kumihimo scissors fob. This one is out of DMC rayon floss. I love the way it shimmers, and it is so soft!

I feel like summer is just flying by! Is it really Friday already? Dave goes back to work on Monday. Today Alison and her kids are driving down, and we're going to Fairoaks Dairy Farm. I hope the rain showers hold off!

Dave's been working hard in the garden. I guess I should take some pictures and share them!


  1. Hi Diane, Lovely Heart! I think the Hearts Desire is the prettiest tatted heart! It's so lacy and delicate looking. Nice scissor fob! What is Kumihimo? Is the cord similar to working a Lucet?
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hearts Desire looks lovely in Tatskool's Coral Reef!

    The scissor fob you made does look soft and shimmery. What do you use as your scissor point cover? Is that a point protector for knitting needles?

  3. This is beautiful! I need to find a teacher near me! Thanks for showing off your lovelies!

  4. I gotta tell you, between you and Tatting Chic I really want to learn how to tat! Love the heart-it's beautiful:).



  5. Nice colour. ANd beautiful heart. Mayb i'll tat one too, with my HDT.
    Have a nice weekend.

  6. ohhhh...Fair Oaks Dairy Farm! I've not been there but heard such good things.

  7. Oh pictures please!
    Sounds like you are having a terrific summer and your heart is gorgeous!

  8. Diane, What a great collection and the cabinet is simply lovely. I am a needlepointer but can appreciate the collections and art of other needleartists. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Ohh.... my favourite pattern...... looking very nice!

    Nice scissor fob. I can't use them as they always get in the way. I am much too clumsy!

  10. Hi Diane, love the heart! I also enjoyed your tatting shuttle collection - some real treasures, including the cabinets! I am glad you have had some time to enjoy your crafts over the Summer...only 5 1/2 months to go for me :)

  11. Love the beautiful blue heart and your scissor fob is gorgeous! I, too, would love to see your garden :)

    Jo :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
