Celtic Tatted Wreath

Here is an easy Celtic Tatted Wreath of Rozella Linden's that I did up last night while not able to sleep. Made one mistake, but when I blocked it tried to disguise it. It turned out not too bad. Again I used #30 Cebelia thread with a Needle. This will make number 5 for the 25 motif challenge.

Christmas Wreath

Here is a Christmas Wreath that I did up yesterday. I didn't have any red beads so I used green. The pattern is by Samantha Melnychuk at Domestic Arts Tatted Lace. I did it up using #30 Cebella and I think if I'm going to do much more tatting with beads, I am going to use my shuttle. Putting beads on the thread every time you do a ring get monotonous and the end of my thread was getting tattered with all the re-threading.

Here is my second motif that I needle tatted. I used size 8 pearl cotton and just did some rings and chains to get a smoother technique figured out.

I have created this blog so that I can post some of what I am doing. I am also considering joining the 25 motif challenge.
I learned to shuttle tat back in 2000 on my own just because I saw a pattern I just had to do. I just recently started needle tatting this fall.
Here is my first needle tatted motif that I did without a pattern and with regular crochet cotton.
