Wendy and I playing with Jan's book, 11/25 motif challenge


Wendy and I have been doing a tat along with Jan Stawasz book,  page no 29 the Flowerpot number one.   I did a test piece from the first page of his book to get his way of tatting into my head 
I will use this little flower on the front of a card,   I was very happy with the design and how easy it was to tat up.   I used Lizbeth no 20 Pink Parade thread.

The flower pot and flowers in Lizbeth No 20 white and plan to put it on a blue card background  but I photographed it on a purple background for now, as I have not got a dark blue card at the moment,   in fact I think the purple looks good as well,  and then I will frame it.  Its not been blocked, as I did not have time to block it before getting this post done in time,  before I frame it, it will be blocked and will look lovely.   Thank you again Wendy for another tat along and I hope we can do it again one day.

From now on all post will be scheduled as I am going away, so its sun sea etc in Cyprus,   until we meet again take care, and if you don't get a comment on your blog while I am away I will catch up with you all when I get back.
