While I was making the Morning Sun Doily I could see where I could easily turn this idea into a heart shape. So when I finished that one, I started this one. Not my usual type of doily but I really enjoyed making it. It was one of my easiest designs as I knew what I was going to do before I ever picked up my hook. Minimunal frogging on this one.
It is done in size 10 in White and Burgundy. I used my size 7/1.65mm hook to create it. I added the dagger beads as an accent. The rose is sewn on at the end. It measures 13 and 1/2 inches tall but 12 inches wide. Eventually it will go to my granddaughter. She loves frilly things like her Nana. I am calling this one Heartfelt. Hope you enjoy it.

Now I am off to start a bedspread, so don't expect to many doilies here for a while. Just had to do this design though while I was feeling inspired.
Oh yeah the bedspread will be done in thread. 2 strands held together, but thread my favorite......

That's a nice variation of your pattern, although my preference is still for the original "square within a square." I love that one!

P.S. You finish a huge tablecloth and you start a bedspread? :faint

Amazing! I look forward to seeing what you've got brewing!
