Heart No 8

No 8 is a cousin of No 7 the Smallest Crewel Heart and goes by the name of One More Small Crewel Heart!! They are very close these two!

This heart has exactly the same lattice centre so practice has paid off!! But this little madam likes the good life and the more frills the better for her!

First one uses the Flora 20 variegated for the lattice and a mid pink flora for the frills.

In her full party clothes in paler pink with with her silver lattice, isn't she a beauty?

Aren't the crossed picots very effective?

My thread amounts, lattice the same as No 7,

Frills.. Sh1, 1.0 meters. Sh2, 3.5 meters, the small picots all measured with a gauge are 6mm and the crossed picots are 17mm. the finished heart measures 5.5cm.

Which lattice effect do you like the best, sparkly silver or neater, more square cotton thread?


  1. Nice work! You like to play with your picots, don't you! :)

  2. I like the cotton lattice! - Really enjoying this project you are undertaking, tackling a whole book at a time.

  3. Oooh! 1 for the silver one for the cotton, both so different.

    Me play with picots Chic!! I play with anything!! but these are pure Martha.

  4. I vote for "silvery" model. They are both beautiful. I've looked at that pattern but haven't been 'brave enough' LOL
    If I ever tat it ~ Ill send you my results...
    hugs, Bev

  5. They are both beautiful. Since you asked, I like the Flora one better. It is more precise and not as much contrast. It would depend on the application. There are times when only silver or gold will do!
