Celtic Maple Leaf

One of the classes that was offered at the Fringe Element Tat Days last weekend was for a Celtic Maple Leaf designed and taught by Ruth Perry also known as Rozella Linden. The design is not to complicated and was a lot of fun to tat. The Celtic Knot part of the leaf has now been used in a snowflake which you can see here. This Celtic Maple Leaf is made with Sugar Maple Hand Dyed Thread from Marilee (Yarnplayer) size 20

Thank you every one I agree Marilee's (Yarnplayer) Sugar Maple HDT is the perfect colours for this leaf. It is like the thread was custom made for it.
Thank you for spreading the love Tattingchic.
