Springtime Thread 20/25 Motif Challenge


This looks a lot of tatting,  in some ways it is but in others not,  its a lot of small items,    I tried out the Springtime thread, by Lizbeth threads in no 20,  its a new thread to me,   I think this was one Rachel from Intatters now Craftree sent me.   The picture above has the Small Cross by Mary Konior from her Pattern Collection book, I edged this cross with white which brought out the colours.    A cross bookmark called Cross of Sevens by Robin Perfetti Tatting by the Bay blog,   and Marjorie's Angel by Martha Ess.

Here is Nellie,  I am calling her Nellie its from the book called Tatted Animals  by  Inga Madsen Page 17 Elephant. I rather like Nellie I made her eye in white with a black bead,  I plan to frame her at a later date.
This is my own pattern,  a Dream catcher and you will find the pattern on my pattern blog link in the side bar.

As you can see I made quite a few items,  the thread is colourful,  I was not sure in the beginning but now yes I do like it.  There will be more made with this thread.

Below is two cross bookmarks,   named Cross of Severn's by Robin Pertetti again the same cross in Springtime,  and Royal wave  no 20 Lizbeth thread,  I did make a white one but he's gone before I had time to photo him.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend,  the weather today is lovely with sunshine but its another week of unsettle weather to come.   I wish the summer would come back for a while.
