2011: 25 Motif Challenge- Motif #14

Finally Finished! It's crazy that it has taken me quite awhile to get this little 5 inch doily done, but that's what I get for straying from project to project. :)
It's done in Lizbeth size 40 Fruit Fizz thread. It's an antique pattern found here: http://www.antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/DMCTat.pdf Ground (figure 24) Medallions

I also got this ornament done for a friend who requested it. It's done in size 10 red and size 10 white thread. The pattern is from Elegant Tatting Patterns by Janet Carroll pg. 28 #3. I stiffened the picots with fabric stiffener so hopefully it will store nicely.

Thank you very much everyone for all the thoughts and prayers. Things are seeming to calm down a bit and as you can see I am getting some tatting accomplished(yeah!!!). May you all be blessed!!! :)

Oh, how pretty! I wish I didn't have to cook right now. I'd much rather tat!

Hi Sue,

Don't you just love Fruit Fizz. The colours look great and your doily is pretty.

I keep coming back and looking at this. It really appeals to me - perhaps the simplicity of the pattern and the threads you used. I don't know how it would look in a plain colour... I have to try it as I cannot stop thinking about it!
