Motif #2

I just had to get this done for today because St Patrick's day is tomorrow...! 
I tatted this using Lizbeth size 20 in colors 152 and 638.  

This Shamrock is by Betsy Evans

In case anyone else had made these, I want you to notice that they are both a little different.  According to the printed directions, the one on the bottom was done according to that.

However, when I looked at the picture of it up close, it was different.  I tried looking around for differences on the net, but I couldn't find any.  The upper one has picots connecting the chains between each one.  I myself think I like the bottom one better.  It's the shaping I think....

If anyone else knows the answer to difference, please let me know....

What beautiful shamrocks you have tatted! I'm not sure which one I like best. The solid color looks very nice, but I also like the varigaiated one too!

Thank you for visiting my blog. The motif at the top of my page that you asked about the threads are from Yarnplayer. It was her Tourmaline set of threads. I did a post about the motifs here:

I got these threads in 2009. I don't know if she has done these color threads since then.

Happy Tatting!
