Heart No 4

HAPPY VALENTINE"S DAY everyone!! Hearts rule today!

Today's heart is another small one, a compliment to the Antique Rose Heart of yesterday, It's name is Mini Rose Heart.

It's good practice for anyone who hasn't tried making the Rose motif found in many patterns.
Very easy to make, just lock joins into lock joins and good tension.

Practice version is in the same dull pinkish thread as before in size 10 Flora.

Now for a fancier version in my favorite deep pink Flora 20 with beads added to the picots as well as some from Sh2/ball thread.

You all enjoyed seeing the possible colours of the Tiny Scallop Heart so let's try it again with is one. The deeper pink colour enables me to get more jewel like colours this time.

Aren't they just gorgeous? Lots of potential for this design.

MY Thread amounts:-

Size 10 Flora Sh1 1.4 metres, Sh2 or ball 2.75 metres. Heart measures 6cm.

Size 20 Flora Sh1 1.2 metres, Sh2 or ball 2.25 metres. Heart measures 4cm.


  1. What a lovely little heart...many times over! LOL!
    Happy Valentine's Day to you! :)

  2. Very pretty hearts! Happy Valentine's Day to you too!
