2013 25 Motif Challenge #4

I have finally gotten back to my challenge!!  I have 3 challenge pieces in progress right now, so I will be up to 7(hopefully soon!!).  This is Motif 5 from Tatting the Self-closing Mock Ring book by The Shuttle Brothers Gary and Randy Houtz(which I received from Fox).  As the more experienced tatters can tell-it's not good, just ok.  I am going to attempt it again later, but I did get it done!  :)  It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Blue Ice.  Hope you are having a great tatting day(or at least a great day!!).  :)

Am actually tatting

I have actually been tatting when I get the chance, but I haven't been able to show much.  I tatted an Autumn Spice garland, but I haven't got a picture of it yet(I will).  And while sitting at the hospital with a friend an older man asked what I was doing(tatting dreamcatcher earrings) so I showed him, and he saw my small garlands and he asked if he could buy the silver with red, white, and green thread-so I made a sale sitting in the waiting room.  And, I started this pattern from Jane Eborall found here:
I love her colors!!!  I am making this for a friend with Cerebreal Palsy(hopefully it's spelled right).  And when I am done with this bracelet I have to make me the same one cuz' she wants us to have friendship bracelets(mine will have a blue center-her favorite color is purple, and mine is blue).  :)  
This is a project which takes tons of my attention and really good lighting!!!
