To continue with my 25 motifs
in a year (challenge) ....
Here is motif #20 from
I used a beautiful fiber from
The rings are separated by ONE ds on the chain -
this is a beautiful fiber to tat with and interesting motif.
A tatting friend, Marlene (w/o blog) showed me a
tatted butterfly she made - with two fibers wound on the same shuttle.
The tatting was so interesting to look at! Especially using a fiber
with multiple colors and a solid color. So I gave it a try with size 20 (Lizbeth):
I made this with two different fibers wound on the same shuttle.
They are color 115 and color 621.
It is pretty THICK - and the colors are interesting. The fiber
looks like it has highlights!
as for the yellow ....

This is a variation of motif #21
from Minitats ... to send in with my subscription renewal:
I pulled out 2 size 80 fibers and wound together on shuttles:
I like it! Using size 80, the motifs are not as thick and
the color changes are very interesting to look at.
Each side looks a little different + fun to try.
Motif #23 from MiniTats
using Lizbeth size 80 --- colors 100 and 696.
Now, I need to go back to motif #22
