And ………. I have completed motif #2 for the 25Motif Challenge. YAY!!! *Clap Clap Clap*. 😀 The pattern is Anniversary from Tatting with visual patterns – Mary Konior and I have done it in Coats Chain Mercer Crochet No. 20.
This is my second motif and I think I should keep track of what all I am learning from each motif. What did I learn from this motif? Well, I managed to get the rings and chains right. I have perfected the joining and I learned to attach new thread when my shuttle ran out of thread. I think, I also understand more clearly now as to how a pattern is worked.
I like Mary Konior’s style of tatting and I like the book, Visual Patterns. I guess, I’ll be tatting from this book again. 🙂
Reply to Comments on Previous Post(RCPP):
I am sorry for not being able to reply to your comments. I am a new mom and have a six month old baby who is crawling these days and so I am always so running about. I only have a few minutes through the day to check my mail, blog or comment and some days, I don’t have time for even that. It is amazing how I get time to tat but more on that some other day. Please bear with me if I don’t post or reply as often as I can. 🙂
