Tatting about

I cannot share my bobbin lace projects at the moment, suffice it to say there has been lots and there will be something worth waiting for soon :)
Meanwhile, I have been doing a little bit of tatting in the truck this last week or so.
Motif number 13 for the 25 motif challenge is not one of my favorites, but here it is anyhow.

Here is motif 14 - I like this one :)
Number 15 is simple, and probably my favorite from this batch.

Number 16 is kinda cute too.

All the motifs so far have been made with DMC cordonnet special 20 shade 554.
When I have finished the 25, I am planning to pick the best 15 to write up the patterns and put together in a booklet. Have you picked your favorite yet?

Finally, I have completed 4 dragon wing doilies by Anne Bruvold. You can find the pattern here.

I usually make large doilies, but these will make fantastic coasters for my SIL.
I will try to take pics of the 2 larger crotcheted blankets for the next post for Kathy and there will be some more glass to share too.
Until then, thanks for visiting, don't forget to say hi before you go and I hope your days are filled with lots of love, lace and laughter...take good care :)

I like all of your motifs! Anne's Dragon Wing doily is fun to tat, and I agree... they will make great coasters!

I have to say, I LOVE #13. I really love the 'askew' of it...I suppose you didn't intend it to come out that way and that's why it's not your fav, but maybe just a little change in stitch #s on the bottom left/top right chains would make it pop even more in the askew-ness. Could just be me though :)

Thanks Diane, as I think your tatting is amazing, I will consider this high praise. Hi Red, most of these designs have no real direction until they are there! (Although if I did the detested blocking before I took the pics, I think that it may be just a little less askew?) I just jump in the truck and tat...the results have been a surprise for me too. Hi Shannon, I really like number 10 too...Number 2 on my favs list atm I think!!
