Coral Reef and more Spring Doileys.
At last I hear you say
A month ago I first tatted Vinnie's Spring Doiley...you can read ALL about it in this post.....for amounts of thread needed etc.
it's an addictive little design
maybe it's just me being lazy!
When I find a pattern that I really like, two things happen....
firstly I want to tat it in every possible colour combo..just to see what it would look like...
and secondly, because I have done it before it becomes easy...and the shuttles tend to load themselves...telling me that I can tat it while watching TV with little effort...see what I mean about being lazy. Where as starting a new design while it may be exciting does require concentration.
I tatted Spring Doiley again.....this time in Flame Lantana...(or Tequila Sunrise...it's other name thanks to Tatting Goddess)......just to see.....
It really does look vibrant. I really liked the way that the colours worked...quite by accident.....the central rings are all orange...and in all the other elements the colours repeat alternately and it all is very harmonious...I like it when that happens.
Now for something more gentle. I tatted it again in my new Coral Reef....yup I have been dyeing Coral reef again as it's one of my favourites.
This time Coral Reef is a teeny bit different...maybe not even enough to notice.....but spurred on by the colour changes in my Rainbow Transitions series....it has two more in between colours added to add a bit more interest.
Here is a collage of all the Spring Doiley's that I have tatted
Still want to do one using a matching solid for the chains.
