Tatting at last and start of the 25 motif challenge

Many of you know the last couple of months has been hard,   my mojo just went not surprising really.  Tatting came to a virtual stand still not helped by making a complete cock up of the tat along mat which I might add is still sitting on the coffee table in front of me and not been picked up since we got home.
Anyway I was asked to tat six snowflakes as above,  the pattern is one of Anna's from December 1991.  
I have been doing little things since we got home,  a few butterflies and these hearts which is the small Tatted Heart designed by Betsy Evans,   I saw this on a blog back in January I am sorry and must apologise I cant remember whose blog it was on but they had a link to the pattern.
Top row from left to right its Lizbeth's white, and Falling Leaves,  Pale Yellow DMC
bottom row left to right Lizbeth's Sea Island Citrus,   Gold,  and Rainbow Taffy.
I have enjoyed tatting these,    its a quick easy pattern,

I hope now my mojo is returning and feeling a bit  better I can start the TIAS,  the pages are printed ready for me to do,  just got to pick a colour and tat. These are the start of the 25 Motif Challenge which I said I would start in the new year.
Take care until we meet again
