I quickly snapped this horshoe I tatted for a wedding my daughter was attending yesterday afternoon. It was a glorious Spring Day and the wedding was in the outdoors. Nanny and Poppy babysat little 1 year-old Jackson, who is absolutely gorgeous! The horseshoe was designedby a member of our Guild, Kath Montague, and is on the perpetual calendar which the Victorian Guild released earlier this year.

The colour combination is what attracted me to this doyley which I tatted in Lizbeth 20. The colours are Natural, Harvest Orange, and Mocha Brown . I did altter it a little . It was worked from a diagram, and as I cannot read Russian, I cannot give the name of the book, or attribute the designer

The beautiful colours of Lizbeth threads have stolen my heart, so I have done the heart pattern for February 2010 in the Ring of Tatters Pattern of the Month Club, to see how some of the colours look in a motif. Some are done in 20, and some in 40. Matching plain colours are suggested for each of the variegated colours on the list, and set the creative ideas flowing.

It has taken a long time, and there have been many hiccups along the way. First I made a big mistake in the central hexagon, and had to start from scratch again, then I hit a brick wall mentally, because I had never done so many split rings at one time, but I managed to overcome this. Life then threw in a few curve balls in the shape of my husband's illness and other family matters, but finally...finally, it is finished. It is worked in Coats 20, given to me by a dear friend. It is a little like getting a very difficult crossword out, a sort of triumphant relief. It will probably go to my daughter, as she is the one with a beautiful big dining table.
