Ok, I still haven't found my camera, but I am using hubbies :D
Just a bit of something odd and funny, before I show you my tatting. remember on Sesseme (sp) Street that song, one of these things isn't like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong... well, I was out collecting eggs, only got 3 today, it has been too cold for many eggs, and well, lets just say, can you spot which one of these isn't like the others?
Yes, that is right, a shell-less egg... the membrane is strong enough to pick it up and hold without breaking it, lol, but there is no yolk or anything, isn't that the oddest thing? Normally these come from new layers, but all our layers are established... someone is having a bad day.....
I am working on an Angels in the Snow, but my first one done in jellybean and hot pink, I messed up because I was paying too much attention to "Law and Order"... so I started over in light pink and mocha, the light brown, this will be motif number 21 when I am done, and I will post the finished pretty when it is completed, but here is the progress so far, just started this-morning"
Motif #14, is a Holiday Stumpy, one of two holiday bookmarks I did... sorry for the color quality, I am not used to my hubbies camera. Christmas red and green Lizbeth size 20, little silver size 12 beads.
Motif #15 is two of two holiday bookmarks, and I took it in 2 pics to get the tail in the shot also. Lizbeth size 20, forgot the color name but it is that nice sage green, and it has iridescent red size 11 beads. Both of these are going to a friend.
Motif # 16 is an ugly piece of lace, done in a hot pink size 10 aunt Lydia cotton, and I really think this pattern would be pretty in a small delicate size, 50 or smaller. it really is bulky and imo quite ugly in the larger stuff. It doesn't lay nicely, it doesn't shape nicely, it doesn't do anything nicely in the large stuff. maybe it was just the way I tatted it, but I really don't like it at all, but I will save it anyhow, it still goes in my sample book.
Motif # 18 is really 2 very simple e-z p-z pieces, but I am counting both simple little things, a light blue butterfly and 5 petal flower together, because they are going on a card. I am going to watercolor some leaves and then put them on the card I am sending to a friend, so I am counting them as one motif. Light blue butterfly, and the flower is color 134, both Lizbeth size 20.
Motif # 19 is a pretty little bookmark, simple one, with white beads in the tail, part of an inside out challenge, I have the opposite bookmark just like it, it is colored on the inside and white on the outside, I just don't have it blocked,. They turned out neat, and I would have counted both of them together as number 19 if I had the other one blocked.
and finally, Motif # 20, is another Shuttle shape, this is a really pretty lime green, Lizbeth size 20, and I used size 12 bronze beads in the center, I really really like this one and I am not sure what I want to do with it, but I am keeping this one, I definitely want to make something to wear with it, just not sure what yet.
sooooo, there you have it. That is what I have been up to, along with all the other stuff :D I hope you enjoy browsing the pics, as much as I enjoyed sharing them :)
as always, happy tatting!
