My First Motif of the 25 Motif Challenge

I have been tatting just over two years. I was taught as a child how to crochet and helped pay for college and seminary making and selling crocheted Christmas ornaments. Two years ago a friend challenged me to learn to tat, and I took to it with enthusiasm. After winning several blue ribbons at the Mississippi State Fair, I submitted my work for judging for membership in the Mississippi Craftsman's Guild and was accepted.
This is my first time blogging and participating on the web, its rather intimidating with all the fantastic tatters out there, but here goes my first motif for the 25 motif challenge. A doily by Iris Niebach.
