Motif 13 - 25 Motif Challenge

I can't believe we're nearly half way through August!  Where have the year gone!  I am still working on my Craftree Mystery TAL but took a break to do some test tatting for Elaine P Gan (Tatting Box).  Elaine's first doily pattern is made up of seven motifs.  Here is my first motif for the doily.  Now to tat the others :).

To see another version of this motif, have a look at Sue's gorgeous motif on her Tatting Lace in Grace blog.

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Pink Chrysanthemum Doily

Recently I bought some gorgeous solid coloured thread.  My only problem was that I found I like tatting with sized 40 thread and most of my new purchases were in size 20 thread!  Luckily some of them were sized 80 thread :).

I was keen to tat in a new colour so decided to tat this gorgeous Chrysanthemum doily from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson.  This was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  Will have to tat this pattern again in two solid colours or a smaller sized thread :).

Pattern Name: Chrysanthemum
Book: Tatting Patterns and Designs
Designer: Gun Blomqvist
Thread: Lizbeth
Size: #20
Colour: #617 Magenta Medium

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).
