A bracelet

I had these beads which I bought from Fire Mountain 
Gems a long time ago and wanted to make something 
with them.  The label on the beads says  BEAD GLASS 
SEA OPAL 4MM.  I had Lizbeth size 40 Coral Splash 
on a shuttle already so....I tatted.  I used Elaine P. Gan's 
method of adding beads and tatted around each, then 
decided I wanted it wider and just started tatting.  
As you can see, it needs re-working, but I like this 
one anyway.  It's also too big for me, but it's mine.  :)
 Here's a close-up.
Have a wonderful week filled with tatting!!! :)

My personal challenge has been put aside too long

Well....after getting the last ornament done I saw a 
snowflake sitting by some patterns I wanted to try 
to tat for ornaments.  So, I tatted the second snowflake 
today joining it to the other and then around the 
glass ornament.  
I love it!!!
 This is Robin Perfetti's Design Tutorial Snowflake. 
The centers of the snowflakes are on the top and 
bottom of the ornament.
 It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Snow White.
Here is a good view from the top.
 A view from the bottom.
 My stand(the challenge is to fill the stand with 
tatted ornaments by Christmas-I am only 1/3 
of the way).
I have been watching Christmas movies 
(and today a Thanksgiving movie) to keep 
me inspired!! :)
Happy Tatting everyone!!! :)

Autumn Apple Pie Maple Leaf Earrings

This is Yarnplayer's Small Maple Leaf pattern, link 
here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/130244268/tatting-pattern-small-maple-leaf-pdf?ref=unav_listing-same
It's worth purchasing!!  
I have tatted these in other colors, but thought that 
someone might not be crazy about the autumn orange 
colors so, I tatted these in Lizbeth size 40 Autumn 
Apple Pie thread.
Hope your day is wonderful!!  
Happy Tatting!!! :)

Anyone remember???

Well, I finally tatted a second Woodland Medallion by Robin 
It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Christmas Delight.
I didn't do it justice because I used just 1 shuttle 
and a ball, but I believe it should be tatted with 2 
shuttles. 
Well, it was for my personal challenge.
This is #7 of my tatted ornaments to fill my ornament stand, 
hopefully by Christmas!!!

First the top looking down on it while it's on the stand...

Next, is the side showing the open space it makes.
Our daughter says it reminds her of diamonds.

Next is the tatting joined at the corners.

And finally, the bottom, where you can see the 
Woodland Medallion square pretty well.  :)
Please forgive the annoying reflections!!!
Hope you are having a wonderful day!!
I haven't been feeling too great today so just 
little things are getting accomplished, but I 
have already tatted something else, and next is 
the second of it to make a pair....of what??
You shall soon see!  ;)

#12 of 12 Ice Drop ornaments completed today!!

This is the final one of the 12.  It is also my favorite!!
This is Barbara's Snowflake Ice Drop pattern (slightly 
modified).  Now to finish them all off, and pack them

on it's own and it does!!! :)
Happy Tatting!!!  Have a wonderful night!! :)

Another today: #11 of 12 Ice Drop Ornaments!!

This is Diane's Rootbeer Fudge Ice Drop pattern.
I made a slight change, instead of the large bead 
I used 3 tiny beads and forced them into a triangle 
point.  I love how they came out!! :)
Have a wonderful night and happy tatting!!! :)
