Well I have my 1st motif finished! I chose a simple snowflake pattern from Myra Piper's book "Tatting". It is the #5 snowflake pattern. I shuttle tatted it in Olympus size 40 thread. The color code on the ball is M9. My 5 1/2 year old daughter Markeia has a white Christmas tree in her bedroom with pink lights and decorations. Right after I got done taking pictures of it, she added it to her tree.
