Motif #21

I couldn't sleep, so guess what I did....This is Egg No. 12 in the "TATTED Easter Eggs" book by Kirsten Wind Hansen.    My picots are probably not even, but I tried using the picot sizer, but for this many, forget it!   Lizbeth thread size 20 in No. 631 called Country Purple Lt.  The book said to make the picots in 4mm size.  According to my metrics book that would only be .16 of an inch!  They did not look that small in the book.....I do feel that these are a bit to big, but it does depend where you looking...ha, ha!

Motif #20

Egg #8 in the book "TATTED Easter Eggs" by Kirsten Wind Hansen. Either the picture is blurry or it's the colors in the spiral cords.... I used Lizbeth size 20 in white and #104, Summer Fun... Now I have to do a simpler one!  The number of twists to use in different sections was not very clear to me in the book.

Motif #19

Decided to use a sold color this time, but still made with Lizbeth size 20, No. 621 called Dusty Rose.  I love the color.  I need more practice with this type of tatting, mainly following the pattern and the count better.  That's all I'm saying....accept I have stiffened it yet.

Motif # 18...

No. 15 in "TATTED Easter Eggs" by Kirsten Wind Hansen.  I used Lizbeth white and No. 124 called Spring Garden.  The butterfly was included in the pattern....I've been asked if I put it in myself.

Motif #17

I used Lizbeth white size 20 thread.   I used tiny antique gold beads.  Maybe the beads could have been a bit bigger.  I haven't used beads and then only once years ago.

Motif #16

Have now done #14 in my "TATTED Easter Eggs" book by Kirsten Wind Hansen.   Again I used Lizbeth thread size 20, in #104 called Summer fun.  I used a roll stitch on the top, bottom and both sides which I have only done once before, but this time I had to wind it 25 times.  The only other time I did it I rolled it about 10.  Actually, I like it..!
