I couldn't do it!


Yes, I'm weak. I had to go to the craft store today for a completely unrelated project, but of course wandered into the thread aisle. Sigh, it's only DMC perle cotton, but I just needed some new color! It's much brighter and cheerier in person.
The motif is AnneB's. http://nuperelle.blogspot.com/
She made a little challenge in her post so I printed the picture and dissected it best I could. It helped me with a few things, I finally got all the right side/wrong side correct, and I even remembered to put that darn magic thread in at the beginning. The only thing I'm not keen on is the first inner ring got pulled too tight as I was so busy tatting over ends and loops all over the place. I need to do 5 more to make the little doiley, so I' can get that right next time I suppose. It's such a cute little motif! We shall call this (and it's subsequent counterparts) number 10 for my challenge. Thank you AnneB for your lovely ideas!

It's so pretty!!! I may have to do it too. Hmm... SO you are already getting into the TAS (Thread Acquisition Syndrome)? Welcome to the club! lol

All your work is lovely! Such good attention to detail. I agree that is a cute little triangle.

Thread acquisition syndrome......there's a name for it lol! Now only if we can convince my poor husband that it's a legitimate condition that requires constant threadication....I mean....medication!

Hi I saw your stuff on the 25 motif challenge page and I had to leave a note. You tat beautifully! The stitches are so even. Not to mention the colours! I'm always apprehensive about using multicolours as I'm scared about the ends!

Thanks Wickedtats! I really only got better at hiding ends working on that motif. It's all about doing it over and over for me :-)
