Christmas Tree Motif---Motif # 2

I'm so glad to recieve positive response on my first motif. Thank you all who visited me! I'm so glad that got 3 permanent guests who follow me! So Thank you all again for you time! Your comments and feedback keeps me going...

My second motif for 25 motif challenge is pattern that I took from a book called "Big Book of Tatting", by Darlene Polachic. I purchased this book from Michael's long time ago. I have the pattern if you are interested. Let me know. I didn't knew how to link it to the blog from my computer.

I did some variation to it. I used two colors instead of one. You can still notice some imperfections around hiding the last ends. I think I need some serious help to learn how to hide ends. Pour in suggestions!

Oh, I have that book, I'll have to look for it. I love tatting in two colors, too. It's fun. It looks so nice and Christmassy!

Thanks! I did some work in two colors some time ago. I made some embellishment lace for my Mom-in-law's outfit. I don't have the picture of it to share... too bad! Thanks, for paying a visit!

Ooh! I have that book too! I'll have to check out the pattern. I like the two colors together.

Try this method of sewing in ends (it's from Jane E's techniques pages)
or try looking at Sharon Briggs' "magic thread" demo at
Or look for Magic Thread on the tips page at Tat's All:
I'd give you some links to the on-line tatting class techniques pages hosted by Georgia Seitz, but her websites are down right now.
I hope these help.
