As discussed, I added another row of chains around the Daisy Heart as I felt the flowers were quite bold and required a stronger outline, in my opinion. As Gina said, I would have made the first row of chains without picots but I didn't want to redo the whole thing so I just carried on adding the last row. I'm happy with that.
On another note, I love getting things in the post - don't you? So yesterday I had a nice envelope arrive from Canada and it was from Fox. In it there was a card and also this lovely bookmark:
Thank you Fox!
This bookmark will be going in my holiday book.
This is an interesting pattern which has pretty hearts in it. Because Fox used two colours in a particular way, you can't see them so well but I think it would look really nice with the colours used differently to highlight the hearts - can you see them? We had a thread about a similar pattern at In Tatters not too long ago. Fox often uses beads on joining picots and I particularly like the little silver ones in this.
