Daisy Heart

I liked this motif (blue square motif) so much that I decided to get the book which I was luckily able to find second-hand on Amazon.  I have carried on with the blue motif and made many more since the last photo.  But in the small book, there was also this Daisy Heart which appealed to me:

Daisy Heart tatted in Lizbeth 20, "Pink Parade"

I only realised after I had completed the two-daisy center that I had missed a petal on the flowers - there should be 8 petals on each and I only have 7.  But strangely, the whole thing worked out anyway and it still looks like the picture in the book so I'm not sure where I would have squeezed in the other petal!

I think this would also look nice with the flowers in one colour, the leaves and stems in another and the surround in another.  What do you think?

This is the book that the patterns came from.  
It is a reprint of patterns from Workbasket magazine.

I have just found out that this lovely heart
was actually designed by Martha Ess
for Workbasket

Best wishes,


  1. It's a pretty motif and I like it in the varigated thread. I think having three different colors might be too busy, but I'd really have to see it done that way to know for sure. hint hint ;-)

  2. The blue snowflake motif is beautiful - as is this Daisy Heart. I love them both! I have to look for more Workbaskets . . .

    I like the idea of the flower/leaves & stems/surround in different colors - do you plan to try it? Would love to see it!


  3. Why is it when I look at the same books you do, I never see what you do? The blue motif is gorgeous and I love this little daisy heart. Plus your tatting is so lovely!

    (I had to find this post- it didn't come to my reader...)

  4. I love this pattern, it is a gorgeous heart and I think it does not matter if the flower has 7 or 8 petals, it looks lovely as it is. well done,
    I am going to have a look for this book,

  5. Das Occhi-Herzchen sieht wunderschön aus.

  6. Thanks for the information you sent me. I went looking for the book, but it is WAY to high in cost for me to purchase it. I will try on my own to figure it out. Wish me luck. I like it the way you did it.
