The last update on this was way back in 2011 here:
It's for my husband and he is actually being patient with me on this.
I have done just a tiny bit more since this picture(my new camera is no longer recognized by the computer so I had to go to great lengths to get this here). I am just using the same antique motif over and over and creating my own design. The pattern is here: http://www.antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/DMCTat.pdf
It's called Ground figure 24 Medallions(apparently the link isn't working any longer or just right now). I can't wait to see the finished project.....but I guess I will have to wait or learn to tat at the speed of light!! :)
