Another Frosty the Snowman Pop Top Drop

I love this one and it's mine.  I don't think I will 
tat another!!
Jean Inglis created the outer design for an Ice Drop 
and the pattern is in the Files in Ice Drop Addicts 
on facebook.  Her design actually has 2 rows and 
it's called Wee Snowballs.
I figured it had to be tatted for Frosty cuz' snowmen 
are made from snowballs.
I don't plan on doing another cuz' these are the best 
Josephine Knots that I have ever done and I don't 
want to do anymore!!!
Hope you are all having a tatting filled week!! :)

Can you tell...

what I have been practicing??
Yep, Josephine knots.  I think most of these have 
turned out far better than any I have ever done. 
There are a few scrappers, but I am pleased!!  I 
have a pattern I want to do which uses lots of 
Josephine knots and I want them to look good 
or just not tat the project!!  ;)
And, this week I received this wonderful book!!!
I have been watching it forever on my Amazon 
account and a week or so ago I saw it very reasonably 
priced and got it!  So, now I have 3 Mary Konior 
tatting books!!  :)  And one pattern has my attention, 
so you might see it sometime soon.  ;)
Hope your weekend has been going well!
I have had a great Saturday so far!!  We had 
another small Christmas and gave and received 
some gifts.  Here is our treasure:  A lighted church.
My best friend, Peggy's, sister and brother-in-law 
make and sell these gorgeous churches.  This is one 
of her small ones, and she has large ones too. 
Very beautifully decorated.
And, "stained" glass windows.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, 
and get some tatting time in!  ;)

My Christmas doily progress

Well, I have gotten some tatting done.
I will post all the info on this doily when done 
so I don't have to carry the book and such to my 
computer(still having troubles getting around).
I am using size 10 Lizbeth Christmas specialty 
pack I purchased quite some time ago.
I am trying to include all the colors(5).
I believe the next row will take forever because it 
looks like you tat what would be 5 or 6 rows  out-
ward and then come back to the doily and do it 
over and over.  We shall see when I get to the 
directions(hopefully I get them right!!!).
I hope you are having a great week and getting 
some tatting in!! :)

Pop Top Drop #4

2 views same drop.
I wasn't sure what to do for this one, but had 
some thoughts and just tatted.  I like it, but I 
don't love it.  I think the outer chains need to 
have a few more stitches to look nicer, but 
it's done for now.  ;)
Again tatted in size 40 Lizbeth(light blue).
I thought I would do so much more tatting sitting, 
but pain is distracting and has kept me from even 
sleeping well, so tatting gets done from time to time 
just like everything else.
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend with 
tatting!!! :)

Enjoying Pop Top Ice Drops!!!

I tatted another pop top drop ornament. It's a bit ruffly
and will need to be blocked(flattened), but I like it!
Still working on healing and tatting. One more 
pop top in this set to tat.  
Hope your new year is starting well and giving 
you tatting time!!! :)

Pop Top Ice Drop # 2

I had an idea, tried it, and after the first 2 repeats 
thought I wouldn't like it and almost cut it off, but 
I decided to continue and see and I like it!!  ;)
Size 40 Lizbeth (I still don't have the color and it's 
still rough to get around 2 weeks after my fall).
Our daughter gave me a beautiful cross necklace 
for Christmas and since I had to sit so much, I 
thought I could "draw" a design of it for possible 
tatting.  We shall see if I get around to actually 
trying to tat it.  ;)
I am also working on the Christmas doily, 
but it's more of an I choose to ignore project 
because before Christmas I spent hours un-tatting 
approx. 6-8 inches.  So glad it's in size 10!!!
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to 
tat something!!  ;)
