25 Motif Challenge
I have been so busy with other stitching recently, that I have been neglecting my 25 Motif Challenge, so here are five more motifs, to catch up a bit. The Angel is 'Ruth's Angel' from Mark Myers' book a 'Tatted Gathering of Angels'. I tatted it in DMC 40.
The other motifs are from Patti Duff's book 'MiniTats' The variegated blue ones are tatted in Coats 20. The white one is tatted in DMC 40.
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
