Tatted Motif unfinished



I just couldn't wait to share this motif! I have ordered some thread for the 4th square and I'm too impatient for it to get here. I saw this motif on Snowy's blog and I've been trying to contact her about it for several days. She said it reminded her of the Pyramid Orchids that grow near her. I don't know whether she designed it, or if it was from a book. If she designed it, I hope she will be flattered that I love it so much. If someone else did, or if you know who it was, please let me know and I will be glad to give them credit or pay for the pattern. I always try to do the right thing. I was just so taken with the design that I had to try and reproduce it, even if only from the picture. So, this is my interpretation of the motif with three, so far, joined together. I haven't blocked it as I want to wait to tat and join the 4th motif.

Also, I have finished blocking the wedding hanky. It is "done and dusted" as Jane put it. I am so excited to give it to my daughter that I have had to hide it from myself! LOL It is wrapped in paper towels around a tube right now. I am going to try and find, or construct, a box just the right size for it before the presentation.

What an interesting play with colours, lovely. Will you be adding more motif to make it bigger??

Thanks Madeline and Jon. I appreciate your comments. Yes, Jon, I will be adding more motifs. Definitely one more, maybe five more. We'll see how the colors work out. I have ordered some thread today.

This does look very nice. I believe this is a design by Cathy Bryant of Scotland. I don't know where else it is published but you can find it in the "Tatters across Time" proficiency program.
