New motif finished

Last week I bought the booklet The Complete Guide to Thread Crochet, simply because of the lovely long-sleeved v-neck sweater in #10 thread. Okay, I might have been tempted by a few of the lace edgings, too and there's a cute runner with filet hearts.
I'm still searching for a pattern and trying to decide what I want to do for this runner that I've promised. I prefer working in one piece rather than motifs. Even though I do love motifs, I have to do the same thing over and over. I was looking at the book & decided that I'd try the motif used in the tablecloth. Well folks, I love this motif. It worked up quickly & easily & it's classic.

I may decided to make the runner with this motif. Or try this motif in the soy yarn that I bought for my sweater. A band of square motifs around the bottom edge of the sweater might just be a good starting point.
In the meantime, I need to search out a good quality thread in a light cream color. Away I go to "Handy Hands Tatting" website.
