It has taken me a little while to actually intentionally get some motifs done for the 25 Motif Challenge..
This is Motif #2/25 it is Frivoles Leaf pattern, made in Lizbeth size 40 – Blue River Glades
The next is Motif #3/25 which is another of Frivoles patterns, this one is her Small Rainbow Motif made in Lizbeth Size 40 Natural and Charcoal (just thread I had prewound) I experimented with right and wrong side only to realize that the last round should have been done as normal for better results. Oh well that’s why I am doing this challenge right?
And finally Motif #4/25 is from Judith Connors Contemporary Tatting Book this is one of the Capella earrings i thought it would make for a good lesson in adding beads, I am fairly happy with it except that I would have been better off to add a larger bead to the center. It is Lizbeth Size 80 Spring Garden and misc gold and silver beads that I have had for donkeys years. This motif does still need to be stiffened and pinned out, its a little bubbly at the moment.
I love this thread colorway, but I think I should try some of the others I have bought on the next motifs, definitely pleased that my tension and skills are getting better.. I do have number 5 completed but am still finishing up the split chain I have on it.
