Still test tatting along

Elaine P. Gan designed this as a doily, but in size 40 
it's more the size of a motif. ;)
I missed 2 joins almost consistently throughout, so, 
I will have to tat it again.
But it's still pretty!!!  :)

I might re-tat it tomorrow since I have to sit for 2 
hours while hubby has eye surgery.
Have a great tatting day!!! :)

More test tatting accomplished, Oh and twins!!

This is another Elaine P. Gan creation.  It's her
Oxalis Choker.  Tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Summer 
Fun and Snow White.
 A close-up view below to show the 4mm beads too.
 And today we received a couple more items for 
test tatting and of course, I had to tat the cross.
This one tats up fairly quick!  It's called Different 
Cross.  Tatted in size 40 HDT from Tat-i-licious 
called Blue Ridge.
 And, 4 days in a row this week we have had deer 
sightings in our yard.  I was so excited to spot 2 
and then even more excited when I saw they are 
twins and mama was there too.
 They came all the way down that path to our yard 
and paused nicely for a picture....
 then mama came out front to check out the area, 
 and then they headed toward the back of our property 
line, but something spooked them so they darted into 
the woods you see behind them. 

Hope your Friday has been filled with tatting and 
maybe some excitement!!! :)
Happy Saturday tatting everyone!!! :)

Test tatting can show you something else....

Like a cross!
Tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Sea Island Citrus 
and Lemon Lt.
 Side by side with the doily and a chance to 
see how the solid color makes a difference in 
the look.  ;)

I hope you have a tatting filled day!!! :)

More test tatting

Elaine P. Gan did some more designing 
and I was given the opportunity to test 
tat this Mosaic Doily.  I messed up and 
didn't have enough attention so I have 
picots on the outer row which shouldn't 
be there, but otherwise I love this design!!!
Tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Sea Island Citrus 
and Ocean Teal Med.  Pictured with a pair 
of kids scissors to show how small it is.

Great thing is that this doily is tatted in 
one pass!!
 And for those who need a better size 
reference, below it's pictured on a  folder.

Have a fabulous tatting Monday!!! :)

Elaine P. Gan's Holy Cross

I started this cross a week ago, but left 
it to start test tatting again.  I got back 
to it this weekend and finished last night.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Royal Wave.
Hope you have a wonderful day!!! :)

Accidentally modified Liberty Cross and Sparkly Butterfly

I tatted this cross before and didn't mess 
up, but I made a mistake in the bottom 
this time.  It's shorter and just a bit 
different that the original, but thankfully 
it still looks good!  ;)
Oh, it's another Elaine P. Gan design.
Tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Red Burst.
I tatted a sparkly butterfly for a dear 
senior who just found out she has cancer 
and dementia.  I want it to brighten her 
day!  She loves blue, and butterflies. I found 
Jennifer Williams Butterfly Ring pattern 
and tatted it in size 40 HDT from Tat-i-licious 
called Blue Ridge and used clear beads for 
sparkle.
I think next week I will try to tat some 
butterflies to go to the project I posted in 
the last post.
Happy Saturday tatting!!! :)
