My little medallion


Yay I finished something!
I'm finding that I really need that sense of "Job well done" to keep me motivated sometimes, and this actually turned out better than I thought it would.
It's my take on this weeks lesson from the Online class, a motif from the Boucher book project that is in the works, the lesson can be found here. It was suggested in class that it would be easy to turn the original example into a square, but you lose the josephines in doing so, and I really like the josephine knots. Anyway, I was doing so well with the frontside/backside on this one, until I figured out that when I redid the second round I joined it on backwards (GO ME!)
And, if I did it again it could use a little adjusting. Most of the kinks got worked out in the convincing ..... er, I mean blocking process. :-) In the end, I think this one might find some use after all. I just happen to have an empty acrylic coaster that is crying out to be utilized. That shall have to wait a few days unfortuanately, I'm booked up through the weekend at this point.
Goodnight to you all, sweet dreams and happy tatting!
