#43-100 motif Challenge
Thread is vintage Coates #30, from Kelly at Tatfully Yours.
You would never know that I used a picot gauge to tat this, but honestly, I did - in spite of the fact that I think I do worse in the measuring department when I hold the thing; I am a very clumsy tatter. Those picots are all different lengths! I don't know what else I can do about that, except perhaps to try it without the gauge...
It is interesting to note how variegated thread works so well in this small motif, but was so totally wrong for this one, even though the pattern by Frivole is brilliant. In this case, only plain thread would have been appropriate - dit moi!
I did give the aforementioned motif to a friend over the holidays, after adding a little silver chain for hanging purposes. She loved it and so did her husband. They don't know a thing about variegated versus non- variegated threads, but they do know about Swarovski crystals!
