Motif challange #2
Dylan's HDT, he's 6 and loves doing crafts with me, I let him dye thread one day and showed him twice how to do it so he took over, when it was all done I asked him what he was going to name it?  He looked at me and as a matter of factly said Ampie, hummmm, Ampie?  You need another name, and again with the matter of fact said it's my thread, I dyed it and I get to name it and it's name is Ampie, so thus Ampie thread was born.  Size 20  I still have more to post and more to do.
These three pics. go together.

Motif challenge #3

 My HDT size 30 just chains and flowers or loops.  These three pics. go together

Motif challenge #4
My HDT size 30



Motif challenge #1
Kaleidoscope came to me one row at a time, these are threads by Jess (sorry don't know the color names) they are my first attempt at smaller size they were done in size 40.  I was feeling crazy oneday and decided to see what I could come up with using each one that I had.  My husband said this was one he really likes, he's never said that about tatting as he doesn't get into it, although he did say he's going to make me a glass case with mirrors all around it to really make the Kaleidoscope affect, I can't wait for him to get back home and make it.  This is by far my favorite.  I have other items that need to be posted too, that'll come later, just had to share this one...NOW. 

The last of my 25 motif challenge

Just going through my finished projects in tatting, or knotting.  Figured I needed to get back on my feet and post some more of my designs.
  # 20 done with my HDT size 30 then using a side can opener I glued it on then put glow in the dark paint and a magnet on the back.  It's my Springtime with a field of flowers, and rainbows, and a butterfly.  Just another of my ideas come into play.

# 21
This is another of my HDT didn't come out the  way I had seen it in my head, just another atempt.  Size 30

My own HDT and just playing around came up with this.  They say pratice makes perfect.  Size 30
Now this heart was so much fun to make as it's done in size 30 my own HDT only with a twist, I used majic markers (perment) I just put dots all the way through the threads, it was pretty enough, but when I sprayed the secented ironing stuff on it it exploided with color, I think I just may be onto something here.

This is my HDT I call it our colors do run because once I rinsed the thread the red and blue ran like crazy.  This is also size 30.  My six year old grandson (Dylan) likes the star.
This was done with a do-dad that I received in the mail, don't know how I got it to come out just the way I wanted guess you don't look at it that way, you just say great job and move on.  My HDT size 20

This is done in 3D effect, just playing around with some crazy ideas.  This is Red Hearts size 10

Also a lid from tomato can, HDT black and white Size 20

60's Blast, & just thrown together, & truth and lies, thread. Heart

60's Blast
My tie dyed by me, named by my husband.
Comes in size
10, 20, & 30
I just sat and started tatting to show what this 60's blast looks like done, the top is like that for a place to hang up, wish I'd have done it like the rest, guess it's not to bad.
This is done in size 30, my tye dyed 60's blast, with a little do dad that I received in the mail
This is also my thread,
Truth and Lies
From a line that I'm going to start of things
My Daddy's taught me.
I Love my Daddy!!
This comes in size
10 & 20
He always said to tell the truth so you don't have to remember the lies, also that you're as good as your word.  Look at how the black runs into the white, showing that lies spread faster than the truth.
The heart is to show how a lie can turn the best heart black with hate.
Thank you daddy for all you've taught me, I Pray that you can teach me some more before it's to late.
Motif #22? 
(Guess I need to go check)
I really like not having my picots even it gives it a frilly look.  Done in size 20, and my tye dyed thread of truth and lies.

My grandson, Dylan age 6, he's going be my little tatter, his dad says NO!!  We'll see bout this.
This is a project I started but didn't like the way it was looking so he took it over, kept showing me (with loads of excitement) how good and how far he'd gotten.  He loves doing crafts, wouldn't it be cool if he does get into it?
