Motif 24 - German Triangle Motif

For Tatting Tea Tuesday I decided to forego tea and focus on creating a new blog header. Still tweaking the fonts, but doesn't the lace look good in succulent summer colors?

Inspired by Jeff Hamilton (Bridge City Tatting) and Fox (Tat-ology), I have blithely jumped on the bandwagon for Susanne Schwenke's triangle motif.  The pattern and diagram are available in her book "Spitzen-Kreationen" on pages 42-43.

Thread used is Lizbeth® 20 #156 Juicy Watermelon. I was using up leftovers from the Jane's Bookmark Cross I made at the end of May. This triangle is so nice to tat and gave me good practice working only from a diagram.

The backdrop is one of my fingerless gloves. The soft halo the Angora fibers give the lace is quite pleasing. Here is another look at the gloves:

One side is smooth and the other is ribbed so it is like having two sets of gloves in one.

Wishing you all blissful me time to create something beautiful. See you next Tuesday for more communi-tea!

Lovely motif and gorgeous colours, are you going to make a few more and into a doily like Jeff.
Great gloves.

Love the new header - particularly the clever font and way you've done the title. You've got me wanting to play with mine again. Must take a look and see if I've got that book too!!!

Nice header and pretty motif. Those gloves look really nice for chilly weather, I really need to get me some.

The header looks great! And very summer-y. I thought it might be a watermelon color even before I read what the thread was - it certainly looks good enough to eat :-) Hand-spun Angora, by you? The gloves look good but a little warm for the weather we just started - 101º yesterday and supposed to be hotter today :-(
