Sneak Peek

This little motif is the start of a bigger motif.  It is from Karen Bovard's Illusions of 3-D in Split Ring Tatting.  These split rings are testing my ability to keep the rings a consistant tension.  Thread is hand dyed by me.  I am keeping a little tail for the time being as I am trying a different way to hide the ends.  They will all be cut in the end.

HDT and Motif

After starting this motif by Mary Konior many times, I finally was able to finish a square without it
looking funny.  It is called Masquerade from her book Tatting with Visual Patterns.  I may at some point add to it but for now, it will be set aside as I tackle other projects.

The thread is my latest dyes.  The bright green is called "Key Lime".  It is a request from Tat Days last year.  The other is called GEMS (a mix of Emerald/Jade/Aquamarine/Amethyst).  The picture does not do the color justice.  Both will be available at Tat Days.
