This is my first motif from Tatting Collage. Of course I tatted it differently from the original pattern as you can see from the first photo. The original pattern requires tatting several separate motifs and then adding them together. With branching encapsulation, the branch portion was tatted in one continuous tat. So really, just the owls are from the book. But since the whole thing is inspired by, and looks very similar to, Lindsay Roger's pattern, I give her full credit. It is tatted in size 100 thread and fits wonderfully into this paper weight. Tomorrow, I will be discussing more on how to use branching encapsulation to improve upon patterns.
Stardate and classes coming up!
