Bree's Sassy "Shaded Sun"

 Gina's said:
I got to tat Bri's doily and used size 20 Coates variegated and size 20 Lizbeth dark purple. It's easy to tat but I had to pay attention and make sure I joined in the right places.
Well, it's not a difficult piece to be sure, but I had terrible trouble in the beginning!  I found it fiddly and a bit challenging to tat, but really only because I was trying to do what the pattern did NOT say to do!  There you have it:  my confession. I cannot follow directions!

My version of Bree's motif in #40 Lizbeth and Milford:

#24 Motif Challenge

Shaded Sun is a neat pattern.  Isn't it pretty?

I had trouble with the thread twisting on the longish chains, but I find that always happens with Lizbeth.

Thanks, Bree! I am so glad I got to test-tat it and will try it again in other colours, this time following the directions as they appear!

  1. you did a beautiful job, and I truly appreciate the input you have been giving me through emails, and I am taking all the input I am getting to heart! I do admit, it is quite unruly until it is pressed out, and I am thinking on that, I am just not sure what to do about that yet... but you did do a beautiful job!!!

    thank you for being a tester:X

  2. Hi, Bree! Actually, it is only twisty till you get the first one or two repeats done. Then it lies quite flat.

  9. Lovely, Fox. I'm behind in my blog reading. I need to go check out Bri's post introducing it. It is nice to get the story behind a pattern.

  10. Yes, the colours are very nice. I find my chains twist, too, sometimes, but I never thought it might be attributed to the thread type. I'll keep that in mind.
