Opportunity from Emerging Designer, FOX

Of course, I said,
when emerging designer,
asked me to test tat
one of her new patterns.

Fox has been taking the latest
Online Tatting Design Class
taught by
and is doing a
job of flexing
her creative muscle.

was a 
relaxing and rewarding
motif to tat.
Thank you for the opportunity, Fox!
It was a pleasure!
My color selection for Maeve
was inspired by nature,
more particularly,
a flower that bloomed
five years ago
in the garden
at Groovy Girl's preschool.

The threads are #20 Lizbeth.
Maeve is #9 for my

I'm a bit behind on my challenge,
but have several pieces to post
in order to begin to catch up.
I am known for tackling tasks
and am often asked by 
members of my family
to translate time frames
from "Ann Time."

They are a clever bunch.  :)

Wow! The tatting, the design, and the flower are all breathtakingly beautiful.

Thank you so much for your beautiful execution of Maeve. It looks wonderful in the colours you have chosen and your stitching is impeccable. You make the design ( and ME!) look really great!

Also, thank you for your eagle-eyed editing skills. I never would have spotted the errors and am very thankful to you for weeding them out.

♥ Fox the Grateful : ))

p.s. The verification word happens to be "blach", which tickles me! Ironic? Sarcastic? Am I being too syrupy? : ))

Very beautiful! You did a great job on Fox's Maeve! Aren't we lucky to know her before she's famous?

Martha said...

Great Job! -- and how fun for both of you. It's a perfectly beautiful design, and I love the colors you selected from your inspirational photo.

You have become so accomplished in the 1-1/2 years since we first met, and I always look forward to each new post.

Thank you SO much everyone! Fox's Maeve is a GREAT pattern to tat - engaging and beautiful as it unfolds. I really appreciate her letting me test tat it.

Now I'M blushing, Fox! Syrupy? NAHHH! Besides, I have a TERRIBLE sweet tooth and Canadian syrup is tops!

Wanda, I've seen some lovely tatting patterns coming from YOUR creative mind as well - perhaps we'll be able to say we knew you AND Fox back when...

Martha, I can't BELIEVE it's ONLY been a year and a half since we "met." It's stunning when I think of all you have accomplished as well. I'm SO glad I stumbled across your blog - it was a lucky day!
