Ohh... New Round; First 4 motifs of 25! :-)

Yup, still around --and still tatting!  :-D  For my second round of the 25 Motif Challenge, I decided to go with 25 Heritage Crosses by Dee Powell from Tatted Bookmarks Needle and Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster.

I really love this pattern.  I think it's probably because it's a steady 5-count all the way through... everything is either 5-5 or 5+5 and, well, for a person with a "numbers quirk" like me, that well-rounded 5 makes it a happy pattern! LOL.  ;-)

The final two rings and chains continue to trip me up a bit, but I've been working right through that... (Well, except for the last one that's still waiting to be completed...).  

I've made 7 so far and set a goal for all 25 to be done by the end of July.  Should be easy, right? *rolls eyes*

Left: Motif #2.  Lizbeth 651, Size 20.
Right: Motif #1, LizBeth Gold, Size 20.
Left: Motif #3.  Lizbeth Seashells, Size 20.
Right: Motif #4.  Lizbeth Peacock Blues, Size 20.

And, here is #4 with some added decor!  :-)
She'll be heading out to Hawaii in the coming days!  I really hope it holds up and doesn't fall apart...  *worries*

Well, I hope that all is well with everyone... Hubby busted a blood vessel in his eye, so I've been living with a man that looks like something for a horror movie!!!  No really....
Lovely, right? 

Happy tatting and love to you all! :-*
