I seem to be stuck in a rut because I did the SAME center as last time but with a different outside round. Somehow it feels done but not yet done. Does that make sense? Like it can become something more or bigger or maybe I just don't know what I'm going to do with it. The thread is Sherry's Autumn medley and Middle earth.
This heart was done in Granny Delicious. If you look at the arches of the heart you'll see that they're ruffled.
I got this effect by doing an altered Victorian set (spiral chain). The left side is done by doing 3 1st half, 1ds and the right side is made by doing 1 ds 3 2nd half. This makes it so the ruffles all face inwards. The benefit of the ruffle is that the chain curves, Victorian sets don't naturally curve. I haven't written the pattern out properly yet but the rosette is standard with the chains being 6 ds on the inner round and 8 on the outer. The rings are all 4-4-4-4 and there are 17 sets on each side of the heart. The chain on the bottom is 6ds. That's practically the pattern!
