Motif 2: 26 Magic Thread tricks
Here's a tatted collar (the rose collar) from Tatting Ideas, made in DMC perle #12, ecru. There are 13 little medallions in there, two ends per medallion, so 26 magic thread tricks.
I shouldn't have worried about running out of thread. Thread-wise, tatting is very economical. There was even enough left over for a little butterfly.
I've been practicing cluny leaves. So far, I've gotten to the point where I no longer need COMPLETE AND UTTER SILENCE to make a leaf, but I still can't string together more than 2-3 without making a mess and needing to cut off. Oh, well, more practice needed. At least the tangled strips are getting longer.
