Star motif again

Still working on the star motif.  This time I've made it in Lizbeth #159 Easter Eggs and #638 Christmas Green in size 20.

Making it with contrasting colors really brings out the pattern, showing which shuttle was used where.  It changes its look quite a bit from using the same thread throughout. I've also made a bit of a change in the last round - again - trying to decide just how I want it. Not sure about this version, either. 

The TIAS has reached Day 3. Now I'm waiting somewhat impatiently for Day 4!  I haven't counted how many people have joined this year but it looks like quite a few.  It's fun to be tatting with other tatters from all over the world, isn't it?  Just seeing everyone's version of the TIAS and reading their comments enhances the enjoyment of being a part of this adventure.  Thank you, Jane!

  1. This look good I like the black it outlines well!

  2. Fun to see how different tatting patterns look in different thread colors!

    I'm not doing the TIAS this year, but I love to watch everyone's progress.

  3. It's strange how different colours change a pattern, lovely combination.
    I am not doing the TIAS as I have injured my hand and cannot tat at the moment.

  4. Your star motif looks awesome!!! :)

  5. I love the way the star motif is a star within a star!


Please share your thoughts about this post, I'd love to hear from you!
