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!
