Class Member Joyce has been tatting Hearts

In March my daughter ask me if I would ray her a heart and frame it.  Her birthday is Christmas Day, and I wanted to do something extra special for her.  I taught myself to needle ray about nine months ago, so  I took Joy’s Heart (pattern “Joy’s Heart” from Needle Tatting with Style Book 1) and decided to make two and try to interlock them.  Before I closed the second heart, I just laid it down and placed them together.  I stiffened them, and each one has a small heart shaped Schwartz crystal in the center picot of the heart.  I bought a double glasses frame from Michael’s and hung them in the frame so they look suspended in air.

The first picture is of them laying on a white cloth.
It is hard to see them in the frame below , as you can see through and see everything in the background.
I also made the Valentine Angel (pattern by Martha Ess) in Christmas colors and added gold glass beads.
