Test Tatting for Elaine P. Gan again

This absolutely fabulous little cross is from Elaine's new book due to come out soon.
It's her Victory Cross test tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Raspberry Pink Med. and Tropical Punch.
As you can see it's quite small in size 40.  It didn't take long at all to tat(maybe 1/2 hour to an hour).
I love the colors together just like when I mix the Raspberry Pink Med. with Fruit Fizz.  :)
We are expecting quite a snowstorm tonight through Sunday or even Monday they said.  Looks like an average of 4 inches of snow(and there isn't even a trace on the ground or in the air yet).
Had plans to get together with other tatters, but in the interest of safety that has been changed.....looks like I may get to spend some of tomorrow tatting and with the family(which has been a blessing for a day already).  :)
Have a great, safe and warm tatting weekend!!!  :)

2015 25 Motif Challenge # 9

This is Corina Meyfeldt's 1 Shuttle Bracelet, Beads All Around, pattern here:
It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Rainbow Splash with larger light green beads.  It doesn't lay flat, but I like it!  I think I will use it as a decoration since it's too short for a bracelet.
The hardest part are the large rings.  As you can see, mine are not smooth.
Not sure I can make my 25 Challenge this year, but I am trying.
Still working on the doily.
Have an wonderful day and hopefully some tatting too!!!  :)

Another cross today already.

This is the Heritage Cross from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle book edited by Barbara Foster.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Wildflower Garden.
This cross is just a bit smaller than the others. 
And my husband 'TRIED" to lay claim to it(guess I need to make him one.
Happy Tatting!!  :)

4 Crosses done

This first cross is Bible Bookmark from Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns
 by Monica Hahn.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Autumn Apple Pie.
Next are Traditional Crosses from Tatting Patterns by Lyn Morton.
The first is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Sherbet Delight, the second Sky Blue Med.
The first with picots as in the diagram, the second without. 
Next is the Monica cross from Tatted Bookmarks-cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Green Coral Sea.
Believe it or not, all these crosses are just about exactly the same size.  I thought that was interesting coming from 3 different books.
And, I have been busy tatting on the doily for my mother-in-law and her husband.  There is still plenty to get done on it, but when I finish the round I am on I will get a picture and post it(that might not be happening till after Thanksgiving, but I am hoping by the end of  next week).
Have a happy tatting day!!!  :)

Two Crosses this week

This first cross is Malene from Tatted Bookmarks -cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
It's tatted in size 40 Yarnplayer's HDT Celery.
It's for another female Sunday night senior.
I chose this one because of the little hearts all around.  She has been having a rough time and I thought it might remind her that she is loved!  :)
***just a side note.  I have noticed that when I tat the crosses from this book in size 40 they all seem to come out about the size of the photo in the book-if you are interested***
This next one is Cross Bookmark from Jennifer Williams, tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Autumn Spice.
It's for a male Sunday night senior.
 I have already started another cross, and have several more to get done, plus I am still working on the once secret tatting(doily).
Hope you have an awesome weekend and maybe get some tatting in too!!!  :)

More tatting done today :)

This is Three Blind Mice pattern from Tatting Patterns by Mary Konior(the most expensive book I own).  I have so badly wanted to tat something from this book since I got it, so with so many other things in motion already and limited time 
I decided to empty a shuttle doing this little all ring pattern. 
This is size 40 Lizbeth Fruit Fizz.  I love how this pattern shows off the colors well.
Hope your day is blessed!!!  :)
