Motif 8 - 25 Motif Challenge

The Heart's Desire pattern by Susan K. Fuller has been on my "To Tat List" since I saw it shared on Facebook.  I finally had some time and decided to tat it as my 8th Motif.  I tatted this using the pattern shared on Le Blog De Frivole (all the way at the bottom of the web page).

There are a few mistakes but hopefully they are not noticeable as I tatted the same mistake on both sides of the heart :).  Now to block and stiffen the motif for my 7yo daughter :).

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Jenn :). 

P.S. for more info about the challenge, please visit 25 Motif Challenge blog :).


  1. That heart looks beautiful to me!!! :)

  2. Great job on the heart. Just say it was an unintentional modification ;-)

    1. Thank you :). LOL great idea! Must remember that phrase for my next tatted project :).

    2. 'Hearts Desire' by Susan Fuller has become a classic pattern, and a 'rite of passage' as a tatter! I finally tatted it about a year ago after seeing it on so many blogs, especially Tatskool's blog (Tats a Kool Challenge) where she has done it in many, many colors using her own hand-dyed threads. (Use the search box and type 'Hearts Desire") Frivole's diagram really helped me a lot! Yours looks just fine to me!

    3. Thanks Kathy :). I will check out Tatskool's blog. Would love to see this pattern in other colours :).

  3. Great job Jenn! The color is so deep and rich. It is so pretty that I didn't notice any mistakes in it at all.
