Onward! #26

Since I started the 25 Motif Challenge in February and have just "finished," I think maybe I can continue and make it to 50 in the 12-month period. So . . . here is #26. On eTatters there is currently a challenge to makes something with an old (out of publication) pattern. I took a simple insertion from Pricilla Book No. 1 and attached it to some elastic to make a wedding garter. Now that I see how it works, I think I would cover the elastic first with fabric or ribbon so that it doesn't show through as much.

Don't you just love tweaking old patterns and making something new with them? It's cute, Joy.

Good for you Joy! I am confident that you'll reach 50 within the 12 months. I'll be cheering you on.

Another proof that tatting is addictive, :-D

and here I was thinking I'd done well to do 3 motif a month to finish in 12 months.
You must be really fast.
I'm pokey and retro tat or don't get around to blocking; or decide to redo the whole motif. sigh
I think it is neat that you are starting on your next 25! way cool.
