Since my computer doesn't get turned on when it's Sunday.....

I decided to post this since I finished it!!
Another wanna-be Ice Drop.  
My own design.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Tropical Punch.
With a yellow disk like a bingo chip and 
sequins.
Have a wonderful night and tomorrow!!
Happy tatting!!  :)

Another sparkly laser disk Ice Drop

 I love these sparkly laser disks!!!  :)  I can't wait to 
see what more I can do!!
This one is tatted with size 80 Lizbeth Razzle Dazzle 
and small purple beads.
I started with the back, but I tatted the long chains, 
then when I tatted the front I tatted the small chains. 
I think next time I will try to tat the small chains 
as in Diane's original pattern and then the long ones 
hoping for a smoother look, but I still like it!!  :)
Have a wonderful weekend and happy tatting!!  :)

Not an Ice Drop Addict(yet!)

 Well, I tried again to make the beautiful blue flower 
"gem" into an Ice Drop.  I decided to try my own 
idea.....I have an ankars flower to use for something 
else.
 So....after that didn't work, and the others in the 
house were busy repairing a gas tank strap that 
broke on the vehicle, I tatted.
I had to re-think and go with my first thought of 
what I was hoping to achieve and that was to show 
as much of the "gem" as possible so keep the tatting 
around the sides.  And this is what happened!
The "gem" was a gift from a tatting friend, and the 
thread is the same HDT I used on that last cross, 
and laser disk Ice Drop.  Again, it's size 40 
Blue Ridge HDT from Tat-ilicious.
Have a wonderful night and happy tatting!!!  :)

Laser disk Ice Drop

I received some neat items to tat with from a sweet 
tatting friend, and I so badly wanted to tat something. 
Well...this isn't what I planned, but at least I didn't 
waste the HDT!!!
This is Diane's Ice Drop pattern with what I call 
a laser disk-it's about the size of a bingo chip, 
and it's kind of like a large sequin.
I love the laser sparkle!!!
This is the front side.
This is the backside.
I am going to work on the original thought, hopefully 
tomorrow.
Happy tatting everyone!!!  :)

Another cross for another senior

Well, we gained some new seniors as well as 
some have moved on from our Sunday night 
group, so I continue blessing each person 
who joins us with a tatted cross!  
This lady is 92-awesome! 
This one is Elaine P. Gan's My Portion Cross 
which is one of my most favorite designs! 
I have tatted it 3 times before and now 
for the first time in blues and I love it!!!
You can purchase the pattern in a book of 
That link has all her patterns and books, but 
I will let you know this is from book # 4.
It's tatted in size 40 Blue Ridge HDT from 
Tat-ilicious(I wish she was still tatting 
and dying threads!).  :)
I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter!!!
Ours was blessed with our 2 Sunday groups 
getting together and spending time in the presence 
of our risen Lord!!  :)
Happy Tatting everyone!!  :)

Fairly productive weekend

Well, besides working hard to get the Sunday 
morning ministry supplies ready and stocked, 
and working on some housework, I tatted!!!
I now have the tablecloth to the length of the 
table(of course it must hang about a foot over 
sides all the way around, but that will come in 
time(lots and lots most likely!).
 Picture as best as I could from above.
 And, I also got 2 rainbow crosses done, and today 
this pink cross.
These are the Big Crosses from Tatting Patterns & Designs 
from Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. 
Tatted in size 10 threads.
And the pink is Resurrection Cross from Elaine P. Gan 
tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Pink Blossoms.
Well, maybe more tatting time today besides more 
housework.  
Have a wonderful day and hopefully tatting time too!!  :)

A Snowflake in April

We were expecting snow 2 days ago, but it missed 
us and that is ok with most everyone here. 
I have gotten some tatting done, this snowflake 
is another Robin Perfetti design-the Design Tutorial Snowflake, link here:
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Snow White.  
I failed to make it as beautiful as it should be due 
to my not so good Josephine Knots.  I just can't get 
them nice.  It was going to be another ornament 
cover, but the center is a little snug.  So, it will 
just stay a snowflake.  :)
I have also added about 6 more motifs to the tablecloth.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, and I hope 
your Palm Sunday is blessed!!!  :)
