#24 Motif Challenge
Susan K Fuller's "Heart's Desire"
I tatted this in Omega #30 thread , which I received in an exchange from Martha ( I hope that is correct - I mixed up Jeff and Is'Dihara in the previous post!). I have never used this thread before and it is a great find for me, since I will not be getting Lizbeth again any time soon.
Martha had a good post on how far the twelve yards used in T.T.E. lasts. Here is what I have done so far: the heart, a mess up of a motif and the motif in the process - and I have enough to finish the motif and then some.
Oh yes, as usual, when tatting this pattern, I get about half way through and discover a fatal error - happens every time and not at the same place either. That used up a bit more thread....
Received in the the mail today from Poland, after a LONG wait for the mail delivery: Jan Stawasz Shuttles!
I have been lusting after these for a while - since I began tatting with beads so often. Is'Dihara was the catalyst. Thanks Is'DIhara!
Inside the envelope there was this lovely tatted motif of Jan's. I feel honoured to have it.
