#8 Motif Challenge
After all the dragons, the fancy motifs, Clunies, onion rings, the beads and the fine threads, there is one pattern that has forever stumped me: a little Iris Niebach freebie. I have tatted it several times before and it looked fine. I have posted it and given it away as a gift. Only I knew that I did not really know HOW to tat the pattern!
That is correct. I just followed the directions, and in my own head pretended I really knew what I was doing, knowing deep down I did not!
There are some different directions to do in the pattern and as you all know by now, directions kill me. Dyslexia Rules! Also, I do FS/BS tatting and added to the directional challenges, I really was at a loss with this one.
This weekend, because I am practising with the Valdani thread, which I love, by the way, in spite of its thinness, I decided it was time to really understand that pattern as I want to do it with beads and in the red and green Valdani.
I think this will be fantastic with beads in the red Valdani ( double-stranded, of course). Stay tuned...
