I have been working on some things for a friend, much of it I won't
be posting, because I want it to be a surprise for her...
but I will be putting up a few things here.
I already have a small package put together, but I want to include
a few pieces of tatting and I have my first bookmark ready to go in the
package, and so I am sharing that here today.
It is of course a piece that has become one of my favorites to tat, and is
the first half of Jon's fold over bookmark,
I have done it so many times now, I don't even read the pattern any more, lol.
Here I have done it in Lizbeth size 20, leafy green, variegated, and white.
I really hope she likes this one, I think it turned out really pretty, like little white
flowers sitting in the grass and leaves :)
Ok, the next pic I am posting here, is the center to a doily I have started, but I
and not continuing on with it, I don't like the way it has turned out.
I do like it as a center, and I do like it as a motif, however
when I tried adding different things for the next row, it just kept being complicated and
was very frustrating. I cut and frogged several times, so I decided it was time to
stop and try something different. I have stuck this under my glass
on my table top and it sits there looking pretty with all my other samples,
but alas, it is not destined to be a nice doily afterall.
and finally, I have designed my very first egg :) I want to buy the book that
Tatskool is using, she is making some beautiful eggs,
which you can see here on her blog , but for now
I am going to just have to put rings and chains together and fudge my own :)
I don't think they came out too bad, I am not sure if there is a standard size
for a typical egg, but I really am happy with mine, and I probably won't
be making any more right now, pretty soon it will be time to move on to
tree ornaments, I have already had requests for little sets... weee
Well thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the pics :)
and as always, happy tatting :)
