I am really enjoying the 25_Motif_Challenge so far. Thank you Sharon for all your hard work on that.
My last endeavor caused so many rainbow sherbert and ice cream cone cravings from all the yummy colors that Dantatter suggested to me that perhaps I should tat an ice_cream_cone and I thought, "What a great idea!". So, I took on the challenge. Have you had the good fortune to meet Dantatter, yet? If you haven't you really should hop on over to her blog and visit for a while. She really is a talented tatter. She also has a website with her prolific tatting; lot's and lot's of tatting eye candy there for you to oogle.
Anyway, back to the ice cream cone challenge. I had already had my eye on another ice_cream_cone pattern by Eliz_Davis for a while so I did that one instead. It has the use of the beautiful Valeire_Square named after the designer, Anna Valeire, from the early 1900's.
So after eating several ice cream cones (Ohhhh, the calories were soooooo worth it, yes!) I finally got around to tatting one and here it is...TAH DAH!!!
Motif #3 The Yummy Rainbow Sherbert Cone
Doesn't a yummy ice cream cone or sherbert cone of your favorite flavor sound good on a warm day? I think it even sounds good on a cool day...Yummy. Speaking of yummy I used some more of LadyShuttleMaker's Yummy Grapefruit HDT (Hand Dyed Thread) in size 20 for the "scoop of sherbert" and DMC's Cebelia color #437 size 20 for the "cone". There is another place to find this particular pattern by Eliz Snow and that's on one of her blog_posts.
Well, now that this is done I promised Melissa from HoneyBeesBliss that I would join her in a pretty doily tat-a-long over at eTatters. It looks like a lot of fun and if you are looking for something to tat feel free to join in the fun! If you don't tat feel free to look around I'll be glad to answer any questions you might have about tatting. Comments are always welcome from my wonderful "Tatted Ring of Bloggers" friends, other blog-world friends, and newcomer's alike. Thanks for popping in for some rainbow sherbert today!
This is a pretty "linky" post wouldn't ya say?
