Christmas Medallions

Here are some Christmas Medallions. They are designed by Nancy Tracy.  She has the  Be-stitched web site.  I tatted both of these medallions for Christmas swaps.  I hope the recipients like them as much as I enjoyed tatting them.

The thread I used is Altin Basak 50, equivalent to about 20 in other threads.  I find the gold filament running through the thread breaks very easily when drawing the rings up and is nearly impossible to untat.  So, if you tat with it, concentrate on the chart and don't make mistakes !!      
It looks very pretty though and is worth the effort.
