Motif #25/25! I did it! :-D

Definitely planning on starting up a new 25 Motif Challenge but I want it to be more focused (all crosses, maybe?)...  Anywho, here's today's tatting.




This is one motif from the "Wild Rose Tray Mat/ Luncheon Set" on pp. 55-56 of The Tatter's Treasure Chest edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep.  It's done (predictably) in Lizbeth size 20.  The center is color 644, Boysenberry Dk; the outer round is 131, Vineyard Harvest.  I was happy for a while that it had a pretty uniform look, then the last two went completely off of that *rolls eyes* (Look at the chains that connect to the middle... left side.).  It measures 5" unblocked.


I'd been looking at this pattern and had a bookmark in it since I got the book, but I don't really like the look of the motifs attached... I wanted to see how just one would look... Ya know, pretty decoration or glass mat.  ;-)  I think this would also make a lovely snowflake!  I'm already thinking about grabbing some white thread and pearly beads and seeing where it leads me. :-)  


Sooo... tomorrow (if not tonight), I'll start working on my next 25 ...just need to think of what to do...  


Thank you all so much for reading! :-*  Love, hugs, and happy tatting to you all!

oh, congrats!!! that is a nice accomplishment :) and all crosses would be neat :) I am thinking of an "all" theme for my 3rd one, but I have to finish this one yet, so it will be several months before I get to it, lol

Congratulations on completing the challenge! I think this motif looks fabulous all on its own. And you know...this is how designing starts...take a little of this and a little of that, put it together in your own unique way..
