Motif # 6


So, here is motif # 6.

I wanted to do something simple and challenging. With so much going on about Celtic tatting, I decided to give the basic ring and chain a Celtic twist. This bookmark is the result.

I worked this pattern using 2 balls and 2 shuttles. Putting the balls threads into separate little bags and sealing the ends, leaving just enough space for the thread to pass through, saves time. ( No need to waste time constantly untangling threads.)

I thought placing it on red velvet will look very good. But it looks gaudy.

I am back to good old scanning. The scanned image is on the right.
