Motif 10

I have fallen in love with this little pattern.
I was intending to do Lace-lovin' Librarian's "Tribute to Myra Piper" but could not decide what colors to use. So in the meantime I tatted the centre and liked it enough that it will stay as is and become my 10th motif.

Myra Piper pattern from her book Tatting. Thread is Tourmaline by Yarnplayer. Size 40. Colors are just divine! Don't show up nearly as rich as they are in real life. One of those "must have" colors!!!

  1. Very pretty! I do love Myra's little book, and this pattern is one of my favorites! Wouldn't it look lovely with a deep chocolate brown, or a luscious raspberry? The possibilities are endless!

  7. So - I am not just talk... I have completed that pattern and it almost drove me nuts! I kept going the wrong way and there was a lot of bad language as I un-tatted...

    I will post the finished piece, which I really like, but it is truy and obviously a first attempt, soon! Thanks for the inspiration!
