St. Patrick's Day will be here before we know it, so it's been easy to focus on greens!
This one was finished early this morning, and I'm tempted to keep it for myself!
I had fun playing with fabric again today, making a pin cushion and two more pocket tissue holders.
I finished the Masquerade motif from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. I do like the way it turned out, but I got to thinking that maybe it's a bit too fiddly for a runner.
Rather than dwell on the motif, I decided to tat another St. Patrick's Day Ice Drop.
It's so much fun choosing charms for the backs of the Ice Drops.
In my search for a motif that's less fiddly for my sister-in-law's runner, I tried this one from Jan Stawasz's Tatted Treasures.
This is another contender for the runner, but I decided to keep searching.
My next test tat was Eightsome Reel from Mary Konior's A Pattern Book of Tatting.
I think I'll do a bit more searching and test tatting, but this might be the motif I choose. It's simple enough to remember (important for tatting multiple motifs), yet it has enough interest that I don't think I'd become bored with it. The best part of this project is looking through my books, one of my favorite pastimes!
