Motifs #3 and #4

Hello Everyone,
Well it has been a long work week. And as I figured no time for tatting during the week. Last night we had family movie night. My husband, Mark and almost 6 yr. old daughter, Markeia. So while watching movies I had a chance to tat a couple motifs. One is yet another snowflake, which I loved the idea of making a bookmark out of it like Gina. It is the same pattern as before, Myra Piper's Tatting book, #5. This time I used DMC size 80 color code 55. This the first time in a really long time I made anything with size 80 thread. I forgot just how tiny it was. I really like how this turned out and I think I will actually keep it for myself. That is something I very rarely do. ;-) The other motif from last night is a cross pattern from "Tatting Patterns" by Mary Konior. I used DMC Perle size 12, color code 316. I just love the color. I am going to try to take different pictures tomorrow as I really don't think these I took tonight do the colors any justice of either motif.
Until next time....


  1. These are both lovely! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. I know what you mean about size 80 being so small. I have only tatted a small wreath with some green I had and after putting the needle down my hands were in more knots than the wreath. LOL Your work looks great!!!!
