New Year Bag Exchange from Usha, Tatted Hearts Paper Clips

Having previously exchanged with Usha, I know she is an accompolished crocheter. So when I received this crocheted bag, it was no surprise. Besides this pleasant blue-toned bag, Usha also did a set of 6 coasters and some pretty roses and flowers! Thank you, Usha! I would have taken ages to crochet all these! But they really make me very tempted to take out my hooks to try those crocheted flowers.

I have been working on some new ideas for a while, but have not reveal them so far. It's hard to keep secret. Last year, Georgia asked if I could do a project with paper clips for the Online Tatting Class. Now, this is the first of the series - Hearts for Feb 2009.

Check out Wally's beaded version - stunning! Wally also tied the ends of the interlinked hearts into a bow, that sure save the sewing. Great idea, Wally!

I hope all of you had no problem following the patterns and the diagrams. I'm not too good with doing up the diagrams, just trying my best. Watch out for the next post for a little clue on the coming paper clip patterns!
