25 Motif Challenge - More

I've been busy the last week with tatting. I had to put aside the Challenge to work on some edging (as mentioned before). But I'm back to tatting on the Challenge.

Here's a heart for Motif #2. I believe this is "Heart's Desire" and I found the pattern here:

I had never attempted a heart before, but thought that it would be neat to try. I searched the Internet over, and found this one. I made one Friday night and found out that I messed up mid-way through the heart. So instead of a heart I had a diseased looking figure! LOL I decided to make it again, and to the pattern justice. So! I did, and here's the finished project. Even though it's not 'perfect' I absolutely adore it! Beautiful design - even if the tatting is not ;-)

MOTIF # 3 & 4

While I was tatting I thought I'd work on some Christmas decorations - Never too early to start those! LOL So I found these 2 angels lurking in my pattern notebook. (I have a 3-ring binder with patterns I have printed from books I own, emails and the Internet - slightly organized so I can find patterns based on Season, type...edging, doily, bookmark, etc.) These lovely ladies come from The Bitty Angel and the Simple Angel! They are sweet and simple. I adored making them. I can see a tree decked out with all Angels this Christmas!
