I seem to be going through a period of procrastination. Of course, some may say I never leave this period, but I digress. I haven't touched my final motif, again. I also haven't scanned or photographed the things I got from Gina. I think this is similar to what I do when a favourite TV show comes to an end (or has ended for shows that were before my time). I almost never watch the final show. I've seen nearly every episode of M*A*S*H multiple times, but not the finale. This way, the show never ends for me. I guess, if I don't work on Motif # 25, the challenge won't come to an end either.
However, I have been tatting. I started a doily. Yes, you heard me right. Instead of finishing the challenge, I started a (fairly) large project. Here is an (early) progress pic:
This is "Lucky Clover" from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. The thread is one I got from Gale at Tat's All. It is called Accent , I'm using colour #148, Mediterranean Blue. It is a 2 ply rayon thread that is about the same size as a size 50 thread. It is absolutely awesome to tat with. This is the first major project that I am using this thread for. Nearly every time I order from Gale, I buy a couple bobbins of this thread. Currently, Gale is selling the thread by the bobbin, but she has started selling a variegated version of Accent by the spool, so she may be selling the solids by the spool now. I will have to ask as I really like this thread. Well, so far anyway.
That's all I have right now. Hopefully, and I mean hopefully, I will get back to the final motif soon. Here is another pic of the doily. I couldn't decide which one looked better.
