Another ornament for My Personal Challenge

I had this first part tatted about a month ago.
I found the pattern at
 I started a second and started joining to the first.
 Continuing tatting.
 Checking the tatting on the ornament from time to time.
 I tat as much as I can without the ornament and 
then I get to a point where I have to put the 
ornament in and finish.
 Tatting with ornament in hand(frustration time).
I finished tatting that little space.
There are now 3 ornaments on the display! 
 Closer up.
 Another closer view.
 This is the new one.
 With flash.
And a flash view of the last one. 
I checked the ornament boxes for sizes, but they 
don't tell, so....I took a measuring tape and guessed.
I am terrible with measuring for some reason, but...
if I am right the small ones are 1 1/2 inches in 
diameter, and the larger(the gold with red on the 
lower hanger) is 2 inches in diameter.
I also sewed ends in on my Spring Doily from 
last year, and on our granddaughter's necklace, 
and I tatted a few more motifs on the tablecloth.
Hope your day is filled with tatting and peace!!  :)

These are very lovely! (I look forward to watching you complete this personal challenge by Christmas. ;)

How did you know this motif would fit if you made two of them? I usually make motifs and use a bare thread zig zagged in between to lace them together, since they never seem to quite fit if I tried tatting them together directly.

Thank you Sarah!!! :)
Usually if I tat a motif and think it would look good on an ornament I try placing it on the ornament and seeing if it fits and how well, and then I kind of guess as to whether or not a second will make it fit all the way. If I am pretty sure, I then tat two together, if I am not, I string them together. :)
