Holiday Tatting Number One


Today I am showing some of the holiday Tatting I did while I was on holiday in Crete.
They were all tatted with Lizbeth no 20 white thread,  there will be some more over the next few days/week
This is one I have done a lot of and is a pattern from the Anna magazines dated December 1991,  its one of my favorties.
This one if the middle of the be-stitched pattern called Tatted 10 point Snowflake,   I love this middle and it makes a lovely snowflake on its own.  I think its time I did the whole pattern even though I do like the middle of this one..
This is a new one on me its from a book called Easy Tatting which I brought Bethany for Christmas last year and its called Five-inch Snowflake.   I do like this pattern although it was a bit fiddly in places.

These I am making the 5th motifs of the 25 motif challenge which I joined last month.   The 1st, 2nd and 3rd motifs were put on the blog while I was away and they were the test tatting I did for Wendy,  The intatters Spring Tatting Exchange  and Introducing Taurus, and my goats.
I hope to get the holiday posts done over the next few days.
In the meantime I hope you have enjoyed the long bank holiday and are keeping well.
Take Care
