MOTIF # 18 # 19 and # 20 ... A SPIDER CALLED VIOLET!!

Just more christmas tatted ornaments. For the one in green I used Ambar macrame cotton thread. similar to a #10 and for square motif in variegated yellow, dmc perle cotton thread #8.

And here is Violet the spider ( my dear argentinian friend called Mabel gave her its name! )!! It is a pattern from Terry Nimer, who kindly shared it at Georgia´s last 2010 online tatting class. It was tatted with a thread called Pilar (from Paraguay), similar to a # 20, in lila colour and added beads to the legs.
The tecnique used here is Floating chains using SSSCH tecnique. It sounds scary! like the spider!!.. but i think that with practice everyone can master it and tat a lot of these cute spidersssssss... Here you can find the floating chain method, clearly showed by Jane Eborall.

the green one is so pretty, that is the same one of Jane's I am getting ready to make, I have only part of it done, and am making ornaments of them also, love her square motif and thought it was perfect for ornaments, glad someone else thought so too :)
