2017 25 Motif Challenge # 6

I have been tatting believe me or not.  I have 
also been sick for 2 weeks while trying to test 
tat this design, let me suggest not doing that!
This is another Elaine P. Gan design inspired by 
Priscilla Tatting, she calls it Wave Runner.
I tatted the first section ok, then going on to 
the next section and getting to the part where 
you join the two sections and my head was all 
"fogged" up, so I messed up and re-tatted the 
beginning section of the joining to the first part 
4 times.  Finally today my head is clear and look!-
I completed it correctly!!!  :)  Just don't look 
too close at the ends cuz' I see that I messed up 
2 of them, but it's ok with me!  :)
This color scheme is inspired by Grace from the 
center of her Spring Doily here: 
I love the combination and will use it again!  :)
Oh, I guess I should tell you that it's Lizbeth 
size 40 Pineapple Parfait and Butterfly Breeze.
I am hoping to add another section to square it off.
I hope your day is blessed with happy tatting!!!  :)

It does look complicated, I'm not surprised your head boggled. Very effective though, especially in those colours. Hope you're fit as a fiddle now.
