A little tatting

Ok, I have done some tatting and have missed getting 
a picture and posting some too.
I had a request for some green dreamcatcher earrings 
which got tatted and delivered already, and then a 
request for a rainbow pair for someone else, which 
I did get a picture of here:
These are my dreamcatcher earrings pattern 
tatted in size 40 Tatskool Rainbow Bright HDT.
Also, I have 2 repeats done on the final round of the 
Spring Doily.  And, working on Christmas Secrets too.
Hope you are having a wonderful tatting time!!!  :)

Spring Doily row 16 done!!!

I finally finished row 16 and only 1 more to go.
I am hoping to get to work on the next row next week.
I am also working on Christmas Secrets(gifts).  I 
have plenty of stuff I need to, and want to get done,
but I am not sure if I can accomplish it all.
Hope you are having a wonderful day with plenty 
of tatting too!!!  :)

A Cross

I asked someone their favorite color and she 
said black, but I like green too.  So....
She has a black and green cross.
This is Mary Konior's Small Cross from 
her Tatting with Visual Patterns book.
It's tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Black and 
Yarnplayer's HDT Celery(my favorite 
green)!!!  :)
I have worked on the Spring Doily, but 
while riding across state Saturday and 
tatting I had a small problem closing a ring.
It stopped closing so I tried to straighten out 
the curling thread, and succeed 3 times, but 
the 4th time the thread snapped, so I have to 
take time to take out the partial ring and join 
the shuttle thread back and start again.
I also worked on the Christmas Bow edging, 
but got tired quickly.
I also had an order for a green pair of my 
dreamcatcher earrings which have been 
tatted and delivered this weekend, and I 
have an order for a rainbow pair.
Happy tatting everyone!!!  :)

Doily update and tiny bookmark

 Spring doily coming along at a snail's pace, but still moving.
I needed to empty shuttles to be able to fill 2 orders.
I have a friend who needs a cross, and another who 
just asked if I would sell her a pair of my dreamcatcher 
earrings, so, I have to get busy and make a cross, 
and the earrings!!!
The spiral below ended up being a tiny bookmark.
Which looks like this(cuz' it is this!!).  :)
My pattern tatted in size 40 HDT Rainbow Bright 
from Tatskool(if I remember correctly!).
Happy tatting!!!  :)

Finally finished another row!!!! :)

Saturday night I finally finished row 15 of Renulek's 
Spring Doily.  I was actually running out of sunlight 
and trying to finish as the sun was going down and 
I just barely made it.  :)
Hopefully I will be starting row 16 soon.
Also, I just finished another tassel bookmark like 
the blue one.  
Happy tatting and have a wonderful day!!!  :)

Bookmarks with heavy beads & tassels

This first bookmark was supposed to be longer, but 
I was running out of thread so it's for a pocket 
prayer book .
 The next two bookmarks are from the book 
Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by 
Barbara Foster.

 These next 2 are inspired from the book Tatting 
Patterns by Mary Konior.  The first is inspired from 
the Interlocking Clovers(and this is my favorite).
This one was inspired by Sweethearts.  :)
All of these are tatted with size 20 Lizbeth Rainbow 
Splash and size 40 of the solids.
The beads on the 4 larger bookmarks are very heavy 
so if you put them at the top of the book with the bookmark 
completely inside then they work fine.
Happy Tatting everyone!!!  :)

Spring Doily and Christmas Wreath Bow edging updates

It's another 2-in-1 picture.
This is the Christmas Wreath Bow edging surrounding 
the Spring Doily.  I have been making slow progress 
on both while tatting along on other projects too. Like 
the suncatcher in the previous post today.
 Here is a closer view so you can see how much of the 
doily row is left before I get to start the next row. 
I haven't measured it, but I think the red edging is about 
a yard in length.  I think I have about a foot or so to go 
and then I can work on the other side and then add to 
the width.
Have a wonderful day with tatting!!!  :)
