#17 Motif Challenge
I love the curves. This leans toward the onion dome shape that I adore. This pattern is from one of Judi Banashek's books and she designed it in 1997.
But there is also the matter of "catching" the bare thread at the back of the work, at the end of a chain, as you complete the final join of the four rings. That final join is the tricky twisty one... I have not perfected that move as you can see. I can do the join fine on it's own, but adding in that extra move - nothing doing!.
Much as I do like the look of this, it seems like a lot of work for a border and it would be waaay to slow going for someone of my experience. I think I have given it a good try and will now bid it adiew, at least for the time being.
I may have soured on the pattern for another teeny little reason...
I will not be posting next week as I will be visiting my kids.
