|the real motif #19|
Cornelia was kind enough to point out that initially there are 6 rings not 8! I wish I could blame this on the pattern being in German but since the numbers were all numbers not words, I don't think I can get away with it. And I still goofed it up at the end but it's passable. Here's what it's really supposed to look like. Gorgeous.
So, what's going on with the Quatrain, Frivole's lovely pattern? Nothing. Nothing at all. It just doesn't seem to be high on my list for the limited time I have for tatting. I'm not sure why - I suspect it has to do with the nature of teaching. It takes so long to get results (sometimes years!) that I really crave completion and closure. And I've got a ways to go with the Quatrain. Not that I won't do it but just now, it's on hiatus.
Latin for today: quam pulchri sunt arbores nunc! = How lovely the trees are now.
