Motif #23

This is the Canadian Sugar Maple Leaf Deisned by Gale Marshall in 2002. I used HDT from Yarnplayer in size 20 called Knitty Gritty. (love the thread) The only problem I had was the pattern only had directions for the first 'Trefoils' as there called, but there are five, so I had to go back and repeat number one. This is a good size piece finished so I'm hoping it will show up a little better in my window. I was told that white would actually show up better. I'm going to make one in white just to see, but later. (Only two more to go!!!)

Very pretty, Barbara! Knitty Gritty is one of my favorite threads.

This is so pretty. I think I saw this over at InTatters, too.

Just marvelous, Barbara! Can't' stop looking at it.

Now I want to tat one, but I doubt any of my threads (and I have some lovely HDTs waiting to be tried...) would hold up to this masterful interplay of color and form.

Again, you've done a great job!
