Motif # 19 - Basic Split Ring Heart

I browsed through Georgia Seitz site last year after I joined her online tatting class. It was fun browsing through on seeing many free patterns and work other new and experienced tatters. Every time I opened her site I liked the basic heart pattern on the top. It always fascinated me and I always felt like making it. Then one fine day I received a mail from Georgia which had a link to the pattern and I was already ready. But despite all the positive vibes I never got a chance to make this one until recently.

This is my nineteenth motif and I am more than half way there. I am happy with the outcome.

Motif # 18 - Maple leaf

I tatted this beaded maple leaf designed by Tammy Rogers as my 18th motif. The pattern can be found here. I made all the free picots beaded using red beads. With this I am getting closer to my final destination. I am happy with all the fun and learning I am having with this challenge.

Motif # 15, 16 & 17

I participated in a forum bookmark exchange, I made a bunch of bookmarks before I was satisfied with the one which really came up the way I wanted to for exchange. This is Supermodel bookmark pattern by Brooklynne Michelle, the link to the pattern can be found here.

The first one I made in pink with pink beads. I gifted this to my mother in law who was visiting us when I finished it

The second one I made with black but this was not showing good details the way I wanted. The only thing I liked about it the nice tassel I made following the instructions in Rachel's tassel making video. The video can be found here. I kept it for the times when I need to gift somebody and I don't find anything.

The last one I made in Yarnplayer's Sugar Maple thread size 10 which I sent to my exchange partner. Hope she liked it as much as I like it.
