25 Motif Challenge 2 of 25

This 2nd Motif is special to me Its actually a doily. When I first started to tat it, I was thinking of my dear Grandma Huber who passed away 16 years ago. Its a doily in memory of her I call it the Verna Ann doily. I know she would have liked it.

~This is something I wanted to go out of the normal bounds of my designing I never tried anything like this I just kind of went with what came to me like usual but I refused to change pattern meaning each ring and chain is the same. I did this in a white and shades of blue.

Heather, the doily is gorgeous. And the recent image gives it more 'oomph'!
