Motifs 23 & 24 /25

Ya know, I started a "large" project and decided not to count the motifs of that toward my count... Now, I'm wishing I had!  I'd be at 25! LOL.  But, methinks that project will end up taking forever and possible being 25 motifs all on its own!

First, I want to thank everyone for their comments and support!  I'm horrible with actually remembering to respond to e-mail which is horrible, I know... but I read every one!  *blushes*  On top of that, I opted to take a day away from the computer yesterday --which I enjoyed much more than I'd ever imagined I could! :-)

I remembered what I forgot in the last post: 
It's another "Heritage Cross" by Dee Powell from Tatted Bookmarks Needle and Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster.  This one is done in Lizbeth, Size 20, Color 131, Vineyard Harvest.  It's been sitting around for a bit (balled up at some points), so it drastically needs to be pinned, but I wanted to share it. LOL.   I'm leaving it without a tassel for now just in case it gets used in a different way...

I went on a little spree of finishing things that I'd left with only a ring or chain to go and then started hiding ends.  (Facing fears is a good thing, right?).  In the process, I found myself hiding the ends of this doily...  Guess what happened next...

I decided to revisit the pattern!  :-)  It's "Small Round #11" by Kenna Prior from Ultimate Book of Tatted Doilies.  It's tatted in Lizbeth Size 20, Color 157. Raspberry Frappe.  I was pleasantly surprised that the actually thread gives off a more pink appearance than purple.  It didn't scan very well --and I had to put paper behind it.  I definitely need to adjust something on my scanner.  Blah.  

I really can't believe I'm actually hiding ends! LOL.  I'm pretty sure everything will fall apart rather easily, but at least I'm finishing, right?  LOL.  

I had something else to say and it's gone now... I hate when that happens!  *rolls eyes*

Hope all is well with you and yours!  :-*

Oh! I remember!  I was surprised to see the similar size of today's doily and the older one.  There's very little difference even though that one was DMC Cebelia size 30 --which going with my theory that there's not much difference in size between that and Lizbeth 20...

You know, once you start hiding ends on a regular basis, you really don't think about it. You just do it. I've gotten to where I can't stand to leave them too long as I'm tatting. I hide most as a I go but there are usually 1 or 2 still to hide at the end. Both the cross and doily look great!

I love the doily! The thread color is super.
