Tatting-25 Motif Challenge #1

I have decided to join the 25-Motif Tatting Challenge and here is my first effort, Wally's tatted bluebird, done in vintage J. P. Coats #10 boil-fast cotton with a little glass bead added for the eye.

I have 12 months to do the other 24 motifs so I had better get cracking.

Those familiar with this pattern will notice there is a chain missing; a disconnect exists between Wally's instructions and my fingers. Note to self: do not mix tatting with brandy highballs again.

I suppose I could say I was one chain shy of a full bird....

That is impressive.

I love tatted work but I haven't learned yet. When I scrolled down to the bluebird, I immediately saw a fish, not a bird! But I can see the bird, too. Very pretty!

I think this is one of those combinations of tatting and tatter that needs a little help in the identification dept!
