Queen of Hearts


It's getting to be that time of year... hearts and flowers for Valentine's Day! I was looking back in my blog, and I haven't attempted Mary Konior's Queen of Hearts from Tatting with Visual Patterns since April of 2010. This is the first time I've come close to tatting this heart in a way that pleases me. I guess having more tatting experience pays off!

I greatly admire those who can design heart patterns. I've tried with no success. Hearts are hard! This one is in size 40 Lizbeth Poppy Red #669. 

I haven't done much tatting since Christmas. I needed to give my hands and wrists a rest. I also find that it's more difficult to tat in the cold weather. So, knitting and crocheting have been my go-to projects.

Daughter Carol bought Wally a teepee. He really enjoyed sitting under the Christmas tree, so this seemed like a fun idea. Carol put the teepee together several days ago, but Wally resisted spending time in there until last night. He looks quite content in his special space!


  1. Gorgeous heart. Good to feel that your tatting has improved over time. Someone admired my crochet tension the other day and I thought well, that just comes with practice. Wally looks very contented there!

    1. I'm glad I finally tatted this heart well! It's a beautiful design. Yes, indeed... practice, practice, practice. Wally does look content!

  2. Great heart!! :)
    Interesting cat home!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
