Motif #23, 24 & 25

I am through with the 25 motif challenge and boy what fun it was... each time I would wonder what to do!

These are my latest creations.

Motif No.23

This is actually a small motif from Gun & Elwy's book and I thought it will look great as a earring too... The thread used here is Yarnplayer's Rhubarub Crisp. I gave the pink ones as a Diwali (Festival Of Lights - celebrated in India) Gift to my Sister in Law and she loved it (I Hope). Now I am on a hunt for more ear ring patterns.

Motif No. 24

This pattern is again from Gun & Elwy's book and looks great as a pendent, Well that's what I have used this as.
I made this in two colors. and the thread used is Rose cotton thread size 20.

Motif No.25

Last but not the least, again from Gun & Elwy's book this motif is done using the same thread as that of Motif. 24. Initially I wanted to make this in a single color thread but I had lot of unused threads still wound in my shuttle. It still came out good so I am happy and no regrets.

The earrings are really pretty, so delicate looking. The other motifs turned out very nice using the two colors. I like them better than the single color shown in the book. :)

Where do I start? Everything is just lovely. The earrings are so sweet and the other motifs as well. I have used several of these motifs and like them very much.
Good work!

Thank you all... Phew! it was good fun I must say and I enjoyed it so much that I am kinda missing it. Well it doesnt stop here does it?

Tattycat said...

No, it musn't stop. I think I have been through at least three times. I am addicted. I haven't kept up with it except the first two times. You gotta keep going.

Dear Saphna
I would like to send you some of my books as a gift. I write you here, as I did'nt find your e-mail adress on your blog. Pleas contact me privately on I sometimes choose some persons to send them my books as a gift who I guess would appreciate it.
Happy tatting,
