#6 Motif Challenge
Oh, la-la! Pretty Altin B! This is yet another of the patterns in the Myra Piper book - they are such fun to tat; just demanding enough to be challenging, yet not so difficult as to frustrate.
I am not sure what happened here. I was careful with the picots, trying to make them larger than joining picots so that you could see them in the cloverleaf joins as in Wendy's work, but the chains seem longer in the pattern picture than in my tatting and the short chains pulled everything tighter than the book photo.
Although this is pretty and the tatting is an example of improved Fox Fingers, I am puzzled as to why the finished piece is so cramped. Both threads were A.B.#50. ?????
This is another sample that came in the mail from Margaret. I have one more sample colour-way to tat, but have not picked a pattern yet.
I'm off to recuperate from the Royal Wedding watch...
