#2 Motif ChallengeSometimes beads just are just not appropriate. This pattern is so small and delicate - especially in #80 thread - which I rarely use - that the beads overtake the tatting. I would call this beading instead. Not my fave.
I DO however really LOVE the two colours of beads I used in this motif - especially the teal, which is the reason I tatted this in the first place; I think the colours are splendid!
The pattern is Myra Piper's. You can see I am into the little motifs at the moment. This fact can be directly attributed to the fact that I am working hard on writing up the second design - the one done in Tatskool's hand dyed thread - usually called HDT, for those of you who have asked.
Writing it up is stressing out my creative tatting muse.
