February's Pinterest Challenge / update on Renuelks mat Wiosna 2015


This is February Pinterest challenge that Suzanne and I are doing, hopefully we will complete 12 one for every month of the year.   This is my February's piece,  its a tatted cross using a button in the middle,  the pattern is called  Encapsulated Button Sunburst Motif of which this cross is a variation.  The pattern was originally published in November 2002 issue of the Tatting Times published by Karey Solomon and was a free pattern by Lily Morales who uses variations of advanced techniques adapted from the "3-5-7-9 Button Motif" from a Labour of Love by Lily Morales 2002
link to  patten   I was not as happy with this cross and may do it again,

Here is an update on the Renuleks mat I have finished round three it was too dark yesterday to sew in the ends.  I am using Lizbeth thread White and Countryside no 20.   I have not blocked it yet so it looks a little creased perhaps after the forth round I will give it a quick press.  This pattern is being done by a lot of tatters around the world,  each with there own colours its proving to be a popular pattern which Renuelks has designed.
Hope you are having a nice day, take care
