Motif #9, 10 &11
If you have read my blog in the past you will know I'm a up beat person. So I'm sorry this entry is a little cold. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF SNOW. UNCLE ALREADY. I would have loved to have so much more to show you in tatted items but I have been busy shoveling snow. Even my dog has had enough. Here she is looking for a spot to pee.
My husband had to snowplow a path in the back yard for her.
I think I may have broken some tatting rules when tatting little Ringtrim here. I have never tatted with two colours before and being a needle tatter it was a little harder to follow the pattern. This guy will be motif #9.
He still turned out pretty good. I used DMC size 30.
This pattern is from Debbie Arnolds site ds9designs. He is going to be a birthday gift for someone who is from the U.S. and now lives here in Canada. I made him in size 10 thread.
This is motif #11 and it's Nancy Tracy's pattern and made in DMC size 30. I like to call it my heart of gold.
