25 Motif Challenge

Here is some new stuff for my Motif challenge! Hope you enjoy them!
2008-Motif #05 Challenge (1).
Finished WIP. I made this using Rubi Thread in Black for chains and Variegated Orange for rings. The pattern I used is "Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set" found in 'The Tatter's Treasure Chest' edited by Mary Carolyn Wathrep. My daughter just loved this doily so she is now the owner of it LOL!

2008-Motif #06 Challenge (5)

This is another finished WIP using what I believe is a 6-cord size 30 thread, I think by J.P. Coats. The pattern I used is "Lacy Medallion Luncheon Set" found in 'The Tatter's Treasure Chest' edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep. This is the first time I have ever done split chains and split rings for climbing out round by round. I have done the split rings before, just not the split chains!

2008-Motif #07 Challenge.
This is a little project I was working on, more information will come later. I can tell you though, the thread used is DMC Cebelia size 30. The white beads are Mill Hill seed beads, the Other angel has Czech glass beads. The pattern design is by Eileen Stafford "Leens Tatted Angel"

2008-Motif #07-a Challenge.
This is an angel I made for a friend, again using the same thread and beads. The white thread came in my tatting exchange. THANK YOU Dr TLT (Tammy). The pattern is (besides the goof I made in the wings) by Eileen Stafford "Leens Tatted Angel".

2008-Motif #08 Challenge.
This is a pair of turtle earrings I made back when I went on a ski trip last Christmas with a girlfriend. I came down with the flu, so needless to say, I didn't leave the room. I still had a blast anyway. The pattern is from some cards from Palmetto tatting days, if I remember right 2004, but can't remember for sure.
2008-Motif #09 Challenge.
This is part of a round robin project I am participating in. The top one is a goof I made in the bookmark, making too many chains. My daughter LOVED it though, and wants a bracelet made like it. The bottom is actually what the bookmark is to look like, only I used a green for the chains. In both of these I used Rubi thread, a variegated purple and a variegated green. (quickely running out of my rubi threads LOL) Sure enjoying them though! The pattern design is by Gale Marshall - "Tatted Linked Ring"

Hi Connie. Thanks for your comments on my snowflakes. The book is by Denise Munoz and I bought it from Handy Hands Tatting. There is a link to them on my blog. I hope you can get some of the HDT. It is wonderful. Your tatting is beautiful and your choice of colors is nice. Keep up the good work.
