Karey's Cookies Completed!

#73-100 Motif Challenge

Here it is!  Isn't it a treat!  
Such a fiddly piece (have I mentioned that?),
 but so worth it in the end.  

I just noticed that I am at #73-100 Motif Challenge.  I began this personal challenge on October 24, 2011, because I was tired of renewing my 25 Motif Challenge that Sharon holds over here.

So I set the bar higher and this is what has happened: nearly three-quarters of the way through.  Wow.   That is a lot of tatting!

This one is, of course, Karey Solomon's design. I used Lizbeth #40. The small, green, outer Delicas are from Tatting Fool. The large green beads are from  Crazy Mom.

Thanks everyone for your contribution!


  1. Really? You thought it was fiddly? I don't remember you mentioning that! lol... it looks great

  2. Wonderful, I like it with the orange beads.
    And great work with your challenge!

  3. Definitely well worth the effort! It's lovely!

  4. Wow!! This is an interesting pattern. Well done, Fox.

  5. Beautiful piece. Never mind the comment on the other post. You have answered my question here. Thank you.

  6. Fabulous! I can't believe how nicely this piece turned out... fiddles and all! ; )

  7. yum, yum, yum he he
    well done Fox. great job.

  8. Oh Fox, it is lovely. I am in awe of all your tatting. I love the fact that you share your frustrations as well as your triumphs. It gives those of us who consider ourselves novices at tatting the encouragement needed to keep going and try new things. Thank you for that.


    1. Sarah, Thank YOU for that!

      We are all novices at some time and even when we become a bit more proficient, there is always some new aspect to learn. That makes it challenging and fun. All tatters get the same frustration, of that I am convinced. It is the nature of the beast.

      So, happy tatting AND un-tatting to you.
      Fox : ))
