I tried working with the basic Ice Drop pattern and picots.
I tried a variety of chain lengths,
trying to find a stitch count that enhanced the shape of the acrylic heart.
I can't say that I'm happy with any of them. In fact, looking back on the heart designs I've tried, I think I like my first one the best, the one that reminded me of Minnie Mouse.
I'm getting kind of tired of hearts. I may do some more experimenting, but I think I'm ready to move on to other things.
