2015 Motif Challenge # 3

This I am definitely including as a challenge piece!!!
It's another of Jane's fabulous designs(this one not for the faint of heart)!!!
I would not recommend this for beginners.
This took complete attention!!!  It has mistakes in it-I am sure I didn't change shuttles in the correct spot somewhere, and there is a missed join, and I made a huge mistake without realizing it until the second to the last repeat(when it kept bugging me that the inner round laid so nicely and the outer round seemed so compact and crunched)
......I used 2 different sizes of thread(I thought I read the label!!!).
It's tatted in size 40 HDT from Snapdragon Lace  color: Wisteria, 
and size 20 Lizbeth Lilac Dk.
I love the design and even the colors.  Maybe some day with more time and attention I will attempt it again, because it truly is wonderful!!!!  :)
Hope you had a wonderful day with some tatting!!  :)

It looks so cute ... like dancing around with linked hands.... it has a kind of Celtic interweaving effect.
I did have some good tatting done y'day ! Slow, because I'm working with tiny thread this time ;-)

I love the thread. I also thought it looked like a Celtic design due to your use of two colors on the split rings. Lovely job!
