25 Motif Challenge #10


The pattern I used for this doily can be found in "Easy Tatting" by Rozella F. Linden. I found it a little confusing in the beginning as it refers you to about 3 different pattern pages. The first round being really simple of course. I don't why I had such a problem on the second round, could be because I had a lot of distractions too (1 1/2 yr old grand daughter).The variegated thread is J.P. Coats Cotton Knit-Cro-Sheen Color # 165 Pastels, and green is Aunt Lydia's Size 10 Color # 154 Frosty Green. I would liked to have used a darker green, but just didn't have one. But I think I'll see if I can find some, (if nothing else in my 'Unidentified' threads) and do another using a darker green. I really do LOVE the way the colors turned out on this though, especially the pastels! Once started it actually does go really fast.

I love this pattern! I made it for my friend Denise for her birthday last year in white. I love the way yours turned out with the variegated thread! Now I'm inspired to make another!

Very pretty! It reminds me of flowers on a trellis.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments on this doily/motif (depending on size thread used). I have a second one I am currently working on. LOL should have had it finished by now, but got busy building a greenhouse and starting seeds. I do have it half done though, using a turquoise colored thread in place of the really light green.

Snowy, I LOVE the way yours turned out. I would love to get some valdani thread sometime. Such GORGEOUS colors!

Thank you again ladies!!!
