Expecting snow soon and can't wait, so I have another snowflake!! A tatted paperclip millipede(just kidding).

 Here is my snowflake hoping to have a match to it soon(have the center done, but accidentally cut the core thread-so taking a break to convince myself to continue).  This is December Motif- pattern here:  https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2SUi2Rbut3JelhIc3VPa1Q0bEE/edit  
Tatted in size 80  Lizbeth Snow White with petite glass beads.  These are going to be snowflake earrings.  My daughter says there are many people in the store where she is a cashier, admiring her tatted leaf earrings and dreamcatcher earrings, and someone asked if I could make snowflakes too.  Well, these are the best I have done!!!  :)

A tatted paperclip millipede(just kidding)......

A new technique to me which has given me lots of inspired ideas, but I have to write them down since I don't have time to experiment with them currently.
This is "Broomstick" Tatted Bookmark- pattern here:   
It is tatted in size 40 Tat-ilicious HDT Kaleidoscope with 2 square multicolor matching buttons.
The pattern didn't say to use the paperclips, that was my idea.
This was an interesting tat!!  And it's all mine(I know, I am selfish!!!)  :)

The Third Day of December (ok....it's actually only October yet, but this is the name of the snowflake I tatted). :)

A few years ago I saw this awesome snowflake on the internet and really wanted to tat it.  Well....I bought the book 24 Snowflakes in tatting by Lene Bjorn and actually tried to tat it, but failed miserably!!!!  I quit and put it away.  Well, I have been looking for this book for several weeks trying to figure out where I placed it so that I could tat some snowflakes from it.  Today, something said to look in one of the plastic drawers and there it way.  Then, something said to tat this snowflake, so I did and actually succeeded this time!!!  :)  Guess I should just keep listening to that something which knew where the book was and that I could tat the snowflake this time.  :)
It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Snow White.  :)

Still tatting here

Got beaded garland #2 (out of 4) done for my friend.  For those who don't know these are 18 feet long and I am tatting Lizbeth size 10 Cranberry Bush around these.  ***Hidden underneath is as "sneak peek" of another project I am working on.  :)
Have a great tatting day!!!  :)

Just some random tattings......

These have been done for a couple of weeks and more are needed for a couple of projects I WANT done.  I will post the projects when and if I get them done.  :)
 These are Tatted Celtic Pumpkins from Rozella Linden.  I printed the pattern a long time ago off my old computer so I don't know if there is still a link online.  These are tiny in size 40 and as you can see, they are not right, but just a try for now.  :)

New Tatting!!! :)

A pattern to become easily addicted to!!!  Marilee's(Yarnplayer's) Small Maple Leaf (which you can purchase here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/130244268/pdf-tatting-pattern-small-maple-leaf?ref=shop_home_active_16    and you can purchase her HDT from that shop too).  My daughter requested these earrings and I had some of Marilee's beautiful Sugar Maple HDT size 40  which needed a purpose.  So...I got the pattern and went to work yesterday.  I tatted 4 leaves(the other set is in a different color, but need ends taken care of-I am not as good as Marilee at that, but they will be posted when done), and today I tatted another Sugar Maple set and have plans for at least 2 most sets, plus I want to make some in Lizbeth Autumn Spice and see how they look.  :)  I have a feeling I will be asked for these once others see them that is why I am making them, other than I think I am addicted.  It takes me about 1 hour per earring.  My daughter loves these!!  :)  Can't wait to see her wear them!  :)
Trying to get other things done too, but wanting more done than I can do at one time!!  :)
Happy Tatting everyone!!!  :)

??Posted before or not??

I just found this the other day and had forgotten about it.  I wanted to block the chains around the outside, but as I see it now, they remind me of the vines on pumpkins all twisty and out of shape so...I think I will leave them as is.  I bought this at Hobby Lobby a year or so ago and wanted to decorate it since it wasn't very nice by itself.  So...I tatted around it, waited to block it and find it much later and like it as is.  It's not perfect, but neither am I.  :)  I believe the thread is size 40 Lizbeth Autumn Spice.
May your autumn season be blessed!!!
