25 Motif Challenge # 6 & 7

25 Motif Challenge #6

 I had to have a chain for my Dacolores Cross so I went to Walmart and bought two white (pearl) necklaces and tatted the chain.  I used size 10 Lizbeth Scottish Thistle, I didn't care if it twisted in fact that's what I was hoping for.  I made this in three days, Oct.13-15.

                                                            25 Motif Challenge #7
                                                  "AMUSEMENT" DOILY
This is a pattern that Sue (God's Kid) gave me to do to learn patterns.  Okay, for the pattern I was working on, ta-da, here it is.  I started out with Lizbeth size 10, Ocean Sunset for the first three rows, then I messed up and didn't relize  it until I was 1/4 of the way in it, then it hit me, the whole row was smaller, yes, I grabbed size 20 of Lizbeth Spring Flower, guess I may have to make another one and do it right.  Thank you Sue.  Yes...I still have to do the ends.


  1. I love your DeColores chain!!! And Ma does too!!! :)
    And your doily actually looks pretty good considering the mistake-and the colors actually are almost the same from what I can see here. Good job on your first try!!! :)
    We will have to choose another one. Hmmm....maybe we should both work on that second one I gave you since I have never done it yet, and we can compare whenever we get together. :D
    Oh, and just so everyone knows...Cheryl is addicted to tatting!!! She takes it almost everywhere with her(I am not even that addicted) :D
    There Cheryl, I told your secret!!! :)
