Tativation, or motivation to tat!
I have been highly motivated to tat... tativated! This is Motif A from "Elegant Tatted Sampler" from the book Tatted Samplers by Karen Lindsay. This is my last piece of tatting using Chris Hinton's Winder Shuttle version 1.2... time to pass it on to the next tatter!
Thread: Altin Basak, size 50, color #090
Finished size: 3" square

Can't wait to get my itchy paws on that little number!ReplyDelete
Fox : ))
Wising I had added myself to the list of test tatters...but I knew I wouldn't be able to try it out in a timely fashion. Your latest motif is terrific!ReplyDelete
Will you miss this shuttle once you pass it on?
Ha ha Diane... nice terminology (Tativated)... I see a trend starting.. I like the sampler piece you choseReplyDelete
LOL to Fox's comment
Very pretty! :)ReplyDelete
I have those books but found the way the patterns are written (paragraph style) a turn off for me. I do like the patterns (from the photos) but just can't get 'into' tatting any of them.ReplyDelete
Perhaps I'll give it a second chance. I COULD rewrite the pattern in a manner I'm accustomed to…I just need more energy. LOL
The motif is lovely. xxx bj
How pretty! Is that the Altan Basak red again? That shuttle is just calling out to me -- I'm certain I can hear it from here!ReplyDelete
That is one sweet little motif, and I love the colour it really stands out!!!!ReplyDelete
