A Red Cross

Mary Konior's Small Cross from Tatting 
with Visual Patterns tatted in size 40 
Lizbeth Christmas Red.
Thankfully they re-opened the clinic 
that I am tatting the crosses for, so 
at my appointment Thursday I will be 
surprising them with the crosses.  I 
will also be finding out how many more 
I need since I have around 10.
Hope you are all doing well!!!
Have a great day and get some tatting 
sanity in.  ;)

Another cross(finally) ***added update **** another update :D

I tried an idea with a cross I had 
already tatted and it didn't work. So 
I started another which I am still 
working on-it takes tons of my 
concentration!!!!  ;)
While taking a break from that cross 
I started this one.  It's Mary Konior's 
Large Cross from Tatting with Visual 
Patterns tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Leaf 
Swirl.
I am still working on Tat-a-Renda's 
14 Day Challenge Doily(row 10), 
and the other cross, and test tatting 
another doily too.  I can't say I don't 
have anything to do.
***Here is the other cross mentioned 
above:
Just finished another cross. This one was 
a challenge for me which took days.
 It's Pernille cross from Tatted Bookmarks 
cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn. Tatted in size 40 
Lizbeth Bright Blue Lt.

Day 10 of 14 done on Tat-a-Renda's
14 Day Challenge Doily.  

Something new in my life-since we 
have the stay at home orders I can't 
be teaching my Sunday groups so we 
have started going "LIVE" on facebook 
for those who have internet and facebook, 
and I am recording cassette tapes(yep, old 
school) for the seniors who don't have the 
internet.  Lots and lots of changes and some 
struggles, but I am thankful that God is still 
in control!!!  :)
Happy International Tatting Day and happy 
tatting today!!! :)

Day 9 of 14 done!

I have gone back to the HDT for now and will 
use it until I run out, or until the doily ends-I think 
I will run out first.  ;)
I am enjoying this and I love seeing all the different 
colors chosen!!!
Have a fabulous day!!  :)
Get some tatting in for sanity!!  ;)

Yesterday I got plenty of tatting done, and even some today

Yesterday I finished a cross that I have 
been working on(it's been a challenge, 
mostly all split rings and just a diagram 
to follow).  I LOVE it!!!
It's Katrine from Tatted Bookmarks
cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
I am also working on a variation of it,
but the thread broke, so I took a break.
This is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Royal
Wave.
 Next, I also finished day 4 of Tat-a-Renda's 14 Day 
Challenge Doily.
And, I did some test tatting and haven't finished yet, 
and I also added 2 more motifs to my tablecloth.
Today:
We woke up to 2 inches of snow which fell over-
night.
 It looked wonderful and bright, but by afternoon 
we were back to brown and boring.  :)
Today I have worked on the test tatting again, 
but the thread broke so it's sitting and waiting.
And, I did get day 5 done on the 14 Day Challenge 
Doily by Tat-a-Renda.
I am concerned the HDT won't make it the full 14 
days, so I added size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. 
And, our state has ordered us to stay home now, 
so lots of Bible study, tatting, and in-home walking 
workouts, besides housework will be happening.
I have had to set up a facebook page for our Sunday 
Night Seniors who have internet to keep in touch, 
and I have to record our lessons on cassette tape 
and bring them to them to pass from person to person 
so they can still hear the Bible lessons which they are 
craving now that they have no real contact with anyone 
since their senior apartment complex in lockdown.
So many in tears and it breaks my heart, but I keep 
praying this will end very soon!!!
Happy Tatting everyone!!! :)

Days 2 and 3 of Tat-a-Renda's 14 Day Challenge Doily

Enjoying this tat-along!!
Day 2 below
 Day 3 below(will need blocking!).  ;)

Have a great day!!  :)
Went to get a prescription filled so as not to run 
out during this time of chaos and because we 
don't know when jobs will resume since last night 
both my hubby and our daughter are laid off for 
and undetermined amount of time, and things were 
kind of crazy out there.  There are bare shelves in 
stores, and tons and tons of people in the stores not 
seeming too worried about being with more than 10 
people at all.  We got what we could and what we 
thought would hold us over a bit.  Praying for this 
to be over soon!!!
