multicolor thread 1

Dear tattingfriends, I like so much to work with the multicolor thread, but I have discovered, that is does not work good with little motifs or doilies, because it hides the design. Therefore I have studied some designs, where the multicolor thread works wonderful. Here are some of them: for the left one I used for the outer round of the flowers the three colors of the multicolor thread of the inner round.

the rose

This is a flower with three layers of rings and chains on one single inner ring. I used the colours which I had on the shuttles, but the next try will be in rosa, because it looks like a rose. Some modifications are needed and as it is made with 4 shuttles, if they have the same colour of thread on them, or are of the same colour, they probably have to be numbered, but the procedure is not so difficult and very enjoying.

daffodil

I eventually managed to tat a daffodil! Unfortunately the scanner is not the right media to evidence the threedimensional shape of this flower, which is much nicer, than how it appears here.

Malva

The malva is one of the first flowers, which anounce the spring and warm weather coming. I like so much to see it during my walks on the hills around Prato.
