Motifs 9 and 10

It's been a while, and I've been dropped from the 25 Motif Challenge, but hopefully if I post a bunch, they'll pick me up again. I have been tatting, but it's been one of those years where you just hang onto the knot in your rope for dear life.

At our right, another heart from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker.  This was one of my first attempts at tatting and I didn't know too much about thread.  Aunt Lydia's and DMC Perle Cotton mixed together, but  it turned out all right.

And below, do you recognize this as the Tardis from Dr. Who?  I made this for my daughter while she was in the hospital in February.  (Yes, this is why I dropped out of the 25 challenge--life just plain got in my way.)  I took it to her on visiting day and it was quite a hit!

Completed in size 10 Lizbeth, I believe in Royal Blue.  I did a practice one initially (see the light blue edition).  Pattern is by Anne Brunvold.
