Depending on Your Perspective...

#54 and #55-100 Motif Challenge
Pattern by Irene Woo
HDT by Karey Solomon - #30

Frivole has diagrammed Iren's pattern beautifully - here. I had never seen this lovely pattern before, but since I relentlessly follow Frivole's blog and am enamoured with her design work and her amazing tatting, I didn't miss this post!

Isn't it interesting how colour can so completely change the feeling of a design?

I take this for granted most of the time and do not even think about it, but when I re-experience this truism, it is like learning something for the very first time.

It was fun tatting these.

  1. I have to admit I still love Irene's heart the most in a solid color. It's a beautiful design.

    1. I might just agree with you, Gina! I had thread left on my shuttles, and I liked the combo, hence the two shown. However, I think I will try it in just one colour today... ; ))

  2. Interesting how the eye focuses on different parts of the pattern according to the threads used.

  4. I like this pattern. I'm usually partial to the solid color on the outside so it looks like an outline. Do you have plans for these hearts?

    1. Hi, tattrldy, I thought I might give them to the Toronto kids on "Valentyms Day!" The Boss loves the tatting. Her Bro, not so much, unless attached to a chisel, mini-train or hammer... You get the picture!

  5. Hmm- the way to do comments is different. Did you do that?

    I really like them and the colors change it so much. I did the heart in a solid color last night (at a meeting!) and I don't like it nearly as well. I might follow your lead!

  6. The color effect really is different on each one. At first glance they looked like 2 different patterns. Beautiful job on both!

  7. I actually really like the one with the red on the inside. Definitely gives a different perspective. In fact, unusually in this case, I prefer the multi-coloured to the uni-coloured pink one!

    ... and thank you so much for the nice comment!

  8. My eye was drawn to the one on the left. I think it's having the solid red close together that I focus on. Funny how much difference it makes.
