I came home to a package from Japan!
I had some Paypal credit and couldn't think of what else to spend it on, so I ordered some Daiso shuttles. These were repackaged, but since they were for the collection, I don't mind. I went back to working on hearts and the next one on the list has clunys in it. Ugh....This one is from Elisadusud . I tucked the clunys that were uglier to the back. Then my white thread snapped. I took it as a sign to set this aside.
I'm going to have to tat up a few more and tweak the pattern to get that heart in there as part of the pattern itself. Also, to make adjustments when working with size 20 thread. This was made with size 50. Moving on from that, I went in search of a simple pattern I can join in multiple elements. I didn't want to do a magic square type of pattern though. I found this snowflake pattern from HandyHands. It's an adaptation from Sandy. It's a simple stitch count I was able to memorize quickly.
