Motif Challenge #25
This was murder to tat! Most of the problem was caused by the fact that I was using some thread that I had wanted to try from T.T.E. and it ended up being WAY thicker than the beautiful #40 Chocolime, by Tatskool.. I should have realized that at the onset. But... well....
SO, when I added the beads (on the backside, where I had a big , thick, thread to tat through) the process became unwieldy.
Crazy Mom, along with the red ones. I like them a lot. The outer beads are copper metal ones that I am also rather partial to. I liked the colour of both of these beads with the thread.
This design completes another round of the 25 Motif Challenge for me. I highly recommend this brilliant ongoing participation, courtesy of Sharon, for those tatters who are looking to stay motivated. It has really kept me tatting and on track when I felt like throwing my shuttles out the window and picking up woodcarving tools instead!
Actually, I would NEVER throw my shuttles out the window...
(I have word that I am still on the Most-Wanted : Lace List in several states and provinces for unprovoked shuttle abuse during several tatting ...ahem... episodes in the past year. Beware: The Tatting Police are everywhere. Tatting is NOT dead.)
This should prove challenging to put on paper... I am greatly 'afeared!
