Pattern is Motif #19
Minitats by Patti Duff

This thread is a gift from Lace-lovin' Librarian, Diane.  Do you remember her blog posts of Stumpy motifs???   She tatted stumpy patterns in many thread colors from YLI and Sulky Blendables.   She sent some thread for me to try.   I practiced a bit with green, size 50 fiber (motif on the left side) before using the sample.    

Sulky Blendables is pretty skinny stuff (12 wt thread); however, the color is yummy.  This is color, 4088 (tatting on the right).   I think this motif will be used in a future jewelry project I've had sketched out on a sheet of paper.   I don't know how pattern designers can get the ideas out of their heads, tatted in fiber, and charted on paper!   I do admire their talents ; )
