I do have a couple of WIPs that I need to complete eventually (some hanky borders to sew on and a large doily to finish!) but I need a burst of inspiration!
So I picked up a book off the shelf and decided to just tat something… anything! It ended up being this motif by Mary Konior called "Carnation". You're supposed to make two of them and wire them together to make a carnation but I just fancied enjoying the colours of Karey Solomon's "Watermelon" thread so I just made one and left it flat. I do like the mix of colours very much. The thread has a lovely sheen (does she use Lizbeth? I don't know) and I think the colours are even more appealing than it shows in these images.
I even like the negative centre space in this… Looks a bit like a maple leaf,
don't you think?
So is everyone all fired up after the Christmas break? Or is anyone suffering from the January blues?
