2014 Motif Challenge # 7

I wasn't going to add this motif to the challenge, but then I realized that it was my first time using Josephine knots so I decided that I would add it.  :)  So....motif #7 is Kincir from Tatting with Rings by Jon Yusoff.  
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Island Breeze.
 Next, is just another bangle bracelet dreamcatcher.  A friend asked if I could tat her a dreamcatcher and I said I would.  She wanted red and blue, but I only had this quilting thread which I asked her if it would do and she said yes.  So, here is the red, white, and blue dreamcatcher.

Love that turquoise! That colour appeals to me the older I get.... As long as I don't start loading it onto my eyelids, I guess it's not a bad thing! : ))

God's Kid said...

Thank you both!! :)
Fox, uh...yah, I don't think on your eyelids would go to well either, but maybe your next tatting project??? :)

Both so pretty! Dream catcher must've been tricky in such fine thread, but it makes it very delicate.

Csodás, jó hangulatot áraszt:-)
Kedves színek.

God's Kid said...

Thank you very much Jane!! :) It wasn't so tricky with the fine thread, but the thread pulled apart at one point while wrapping the bracelet and I had to figure a way to continue so that was a bit tricky. :)
Thank you Jolimama!! :)

Both are so pretty! Aren't Josephine knots fun?

God's Kid said...

Thank you Diane!! :) Ummmm....fun....not really for me. I hate the thread twisting up on me(or I am doing something wrong). :) Either way, I think they turned out ok.

Both are pretty, but I prefer the first: Josephine knots are very pretty!

God's Kid said...

Thank you Lilas!!! :)

Both the 'motifs' are very cute. I especially like the dream-catcher! In fact, it can a nice gift for July 4th, with your beautiful colored thread :-))

I've been going through some of your earlier motifs & tatting, too. Lovely work !

As regards Josephine rings, there were a few superb tips on an InTatters thread where experienced tatters said that they start &/or end the JR with a Normal ds. Haven't yet tried it myself - have you?

God's Kid said...

Hi Muskaan!! Thank you for your comments!! :) I am not on InTatters, but no, I haven't tried that tip myself. This was my first attempt with Josephine rings so I just did what it said. :) Thanks for the tip, I might try it sometime. :)

I do not do Josephines often. You did a wonderful job!!! Wow - the colors arranged in a pleasing way!

And the dreamcatcher w/feathers is so lovely!!!!!

you go girl! Remember tomorrow is international tatting day. If you have not seen the challenge - visit the shuttlebird site. If you do the tating and send them your pic and addy, you will receive twirlz fiber.

That us so pretty. Did you enjoy the josephine rings? The bangle dreamcatcher is gorgeous too.
Love the colours of island breeze.

God's Kid said...

Thank you so much umi n tsuru!!! :)
As for the josephine rings, not my thing. I feel like the thread twists up so much. But I am happy that people think they look good!! :)

Jenn said...

Wow! This is awesome! Love the dream catcher too :).
