Starting a 3rd challenge today: Motifs 1 - 8I've been test tatting recently for Martha Ess. She's working on a book of tatted toys, and I was fortunate to be able to tat two patterns from the book.
Both pictures have been manipulated to make them blurry - it's not your eyes playing tricks on you.
This is Martha's toy dump truck. I tatted 3 of them - in different colors, but I only blurred one of the photographs. I guess they (the three trucks) are Motifs 1, 2, and 3.
After the truck, I tatted a rubber duckie. The little duckie is a fairly quick pattern to tat, and great fun. Isn't he CUTE? I tatted 5 duckies in all, but they all look the same - yellow duckie, orange bill - the only 'difference' is the thread size, so I only blurred one picture. The duckies are Motifs 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
I've been working on the WIOSNA 2016 napkin by Renulek, also, but don't have a picture of it yet.
I'm using Valdani thread - an overdyed raspberry color. I really like their overdyed colors - the tatted pieces are so pretty.
Happy tatting to you!
