#7 Motif Challenge
Tussie Mussie by Rosemarie Peel
Okay - I have had enough of a break from tatting the border.. .grrr. I will not post anything new before I get that finished. Actually, it is pleasant to tat and is looking good, so I am not sure what the problem is. I think Spring is beginning to weave her wander-lusting fingers around my soul!
The bright, but cold mornings bring warm, sunny rays through the window, and The Cat and I are definitely feeling the change of season. Finally.
Now, about the Tussie Mussie. I loved the picture in the 30th Anniversary Book of Patterns published by the Ring of Tatters. It is a lovely design. For me, however, I find this type of work to be much too fiddly and I like designs that are more... solid. Heavy. Gothic. That much I have discovered recently.
It has sure taken a lot of time and effort to see what I really enjoy! I would have thought that my personal preferences would be much more defined after two years of tatting. I am the same way after MANY decades of buying my own shoes, deciding on my footwear!
