Iris TIAS version2 X 4

at last I've made four motifs of this pretty pretty thing!
I've been doing it for over five days now.
The best part is when somebody comes up to me and says....
WOW>>>>>that's a beautiful thing you're making.
Is it something you designed yourself?
So many mistakes!
(I hope you can't make them out;) )
I've been having a little trouble with the joins at the top
and that each motif has to begin afresh.
and I have to cut and tie, sorry....... hide ends at the end of each motif?
Still I LOVE IT.
It's been a nice cluny practice too.
I still can't make ones like Elisadud but I relearned it from her video.
(somehow I can't get the link to her video now!)
{just for the asking how do you make plump clunies? Mine look a little malnourished!}
Here's a closer look at the centre

I so much want to go on with it and make it into something I can put on my shirt or something

but the thread I've used is No.20 and a little thick for "dressing pleasure"
Or should I make it into a Doily?

Or redo it in another thread!

I think I'm .......

At least one thing is sure this time

This is Motif No.22 for 25 motif Challenge.

Very pretty. You clunies don't look malnourished to me. In a thinner thread it would look good on a pocket or on the bottom of a sleeve on the diagonal, although then you would need to make another one!:-)

Your work is lovely! For me, a mere mortal in the tatting world, I don't see a flaw anywhere!
