25 Motif Challenge Motif #20

I did a little practicing on some new techniques the last couple of days. One I didn't take a photo of, just a bit of a piece trying to do tatted chain links. Pretty cool!!!,,, but I definitely
will have to practice more on that one. LOL I wish I could have taken pics
of my hubby, daughter and friend's reactions when they seen it! LOL My
friend had to have a magnifying glass, it was pretty funny!
Motif # 20
The second technique was my first try at covering a cabone ring. I used Jon's pattern where she used the Hearts Snowflake. I didn't get brave enough to
include the beads, as I was mainly trying to learn to cover a ring. Took a
bit of studying the pattern to make sure I had the right number of ds and
picots in the right places. But I did it! In two colors too. Just wish I had
thought enough ahead and did every other ring on the second round in the same color as my chain, so the hearts would have showed up better. Oh well,,,, live n learn!

Oh Shoot, I forgot to put in a link where to find the pattern! Here is the link with the pattern for the 'Heart's Snowflake itself: http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/2007/02/it-was-fun-snowflakes-in-february.html and here is the link for the ring part: http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/2007/09/wrapping-plastic-ring-with-double.html

Great motif! I'm sure you'll make another one with the inner rings in the color you want to show off the heart and it will be fun to compare them side by side!

Thank you VERY much Gina and Mrs. John! Yes Gina I will indeed make another LOL I think you know me! Cause it is bugging me about that very thing, the hearts!
I'm glad you like the slide show Mrs. John! I kind of last minute got the idea, when I did have some of my full moon photography in slide show there, and I thought shucks, I should do 2007 tatting beginnings. Now to do that on the other blogs LOL! Thank you both again for your wonderful comments!

The tatting in your slide show is really lovely and very varied.

Give yourself a huge pat on the back for achievement.
