Lost and found motif #14

Last week I made this motif using a cabone ring in the center. I showed it to my husband and he liked it, too. As it was late we went to bed and the next morning when I got up I couldn’t find it!

We looked all over the house and couldn’t find it. I looked through all my tatting things, in my chair, on the table, on the floor. My husband looked all over and it just wasn’t anywhere! We even looked to see if one of the cats had decided to play with it and dragged it off. No luck.

Friday we went to Nebraska to see our daughter and her family. We had a nice visit with them and came home late Saturday. I sat down in my chair, looked down, and there it was! Just laying there on the floor! How it could be there I don’t know.

But it was found, oh boy! I hadn’t even jotted down the pattern or taken a picture or scan of it. I was quite relieved. So I can finally post a picture of my motif #14 for the 25 Motif Challenge. I blame this on Krystledawne because I saw her earrings and thought it would be fun to try something with a ring in the middle.

  1. How pretty is that? I love it. Funny how things “disappear” only to show up right in front of us. I bet the cat batted it under something and then brought it out again to play with. But you’ll never know!

  2. Oh, that kitty must’ve had a hiding place for it and carried it off as a treasure! I don’t blame your kitty one bit, LOL! It is very pretty! You did a lovely job on it. I have several vintage patterns on this technique and then last year I got the book “Tatting Over A Cabone Ring”, but haven’t done anything with it. You may have just inspired me! 🙂

  3. I don’t know if it was gremlins or the cats or a combination of both, but at least it’s back!

    Thank you, and I’ll be looking for something done from your vintage book, TattingChic, if you should be so inspired.

    Jane, I think you might be right, gremlins! Any hints to keep them at bay? I’m glad you like it.

    JulenaJo, thank you. If only the cat could talk so I could understand her she might solve the mystery, but alas, there is the language barrier.

    Thank you, Diane, I think the colors work great.

    Steph, I’m very glad you like it. Now you see it, now you don’t, that’s it exactly!

    Thank you Carol, I’m glad you like it.

  4. Cute story! Love this motif. I just learned to do the covered ring, using Jon’s pattern, but it did not turn out as pretty as your lovely purple piece. I need to practice!You have given me motivation!
    Fox : )

  5. Thank you, Jon. I hadn’t looked at it as vintage-like, but I guess it is.

    Thanks, Gina. I’m glad, too!

    Fox, glad you like it. And practice is right – Doing the 2nd one I still had to think hard on how I did the first one!

  6. How did I miss this? I’m glad to take the blame though, It’s very cute. Good work!

    I’m totally addicted to those little plastic rings at this point.

  7. Hey, Krystle, isn’t it great that the Internet lets us get get ideas from each other and keep those creative juices flowing? I loved the earings you made.
