25 Motif Challenge (tatting)

I've been out of the loop for a while due to a MAJOR move. My husband and I moved on October 31 from Tulsa, OK to Anson, TX. We stayed with my sister for a couple of weeks as we searched for an apartment in Abilene, TX. We got moved about a week before Thanksgiving and have since been busy unpacking and organizing. Of course, I had time to create, but DH FORGOT where he had packed my scanner!!! We found and set up last night, so now I am back in full steam!

Here are a few motifs I did for an online tatting class:

I have definitely become a fan of rings on chains.
