Motif #3...

I woke up this morning and was in the mood to look through some of my tatting books.  I spotted this Shamrock in 'Transitions in Tatting From Flat to Floral" by Sharon Briggs.  This one was pretty easy to do, but today being the day, I decided to post it.

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.

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....
