Friendship means many different things to many different people. For some it's the kind look someone gives you when you've made a social faux pas for others it's the one who goes to a social event with you when you just can't stand to go alone. It can mean these and many, many different things.
In my last post I shared an experience I've recently had with a friend who has graciously helped me out in a difficult time. I felt this was deserving of a little tatted token of friendship...a heart.
She seemed to like the idea.
I spent most of the day yesterday tatting this up for her. I'm counting it as one of my motifs for the 25 Motif Challenge.
Frienship Heart as seen from the front for those of you who care to stare at it and figure out what that means because to most people it looks exactly the same as the back...hee hee.
I'm really proud of this heart because for the first time I tatted a front from a back. I think that doing the 25 Motif Challenge is helping me to improve my tatting skills. In order to do a front and back when I reversed work for the chains, I tatted the second half of the double stitch first, and then the first half of the double stitch second and so on and so forth so that when turned over all the double stitches looked the same on both the rings and chains. I've never done that before. I think I tried once, but I got so confused I stopped. I wasn't ready for such ridiculous attention to detail. I don't know if I will do it on continuous basis.
My friend will probably never know the difference, but I will have the satisfaction of knowing I can do it again if I want to.
I love to make handmade cards, but this one was from an awesome box of cards I got at Costco a while back. If you have a Costco Club store in your area and you like cards you should really take advantage of this deal! They're about fifteen dollars for a box of thirty or more beautiful cards and they're all different from each other! They're great when you're in a rush and you don't have time to make one or you just like a cute handmade look without the fuss. This is one of the more elegant ones, most of them are more cutesy...I don't know why, but I just had to put that little plug in there for the Costco cards...LOL!
