Christmas Tree Progression

This is my progression in designing a tatted
Christmas tree

This is the one that I settled with. It can be done as a flat motif
as this one is or.....

.... make two, fold them in half and glue them together along
the fold.

Linda, do you think that it would be possible to join the 2nd tree to the first one (for the 3D tree) as you join the chains?

Wonderful Linda! I am working on my own Christmas tree design too!

I think that it would be awkward to work with if it was joined during the tatting. The three ring clover at the top of the tree would have to be joined somehow and so would the block tatting at the bottom. Therefore on the whole I think it is easier to just fold each motif in half lengthwise and dab glue along the fold line and just press together. It takes only a few seconds. The one that I have completed tonight has the hang-up thread glued between the two motifs.

Hello Linda!
Though I don't celebrate Christmas, I think I like the first one the best, then I like your 3-D tree too!
Blessings, Connie
