Twin doily update and Test tatting chokers

Both twin doilies have row 20 of 33 done now.
On to row 21 and hoping to make better progress 
on them.
 I have also been test tatting and posting some of it, 
but I wanted to make sure you know that I am 
tatting.  ;)
Elaine P. Gan has choker patterns for us to test tat 
and I have been working on them a lot.
I did the blue one, and then the same pattern in 
black with red beads, and then dark purple with 
silver beads(all of the 3 bottom chokers are the 
same pattern).
Then I test tatted the middle one in dark purple
only because the the thread was on the shuttle already,
 and then the top one(still in progress), again in dark 
purple because it was on the shuttle, but I also 
added clear beads.
I wanted a way to package them without folding 
the lace so I came up with a piece of card stock 
which I cut 2 slits in and connected them to make 
a ring which I wrapped the choker around twice 
and connected it.  I believe this will be a good way 
to package them.
I have also added a few more motifs to the tablecloth, 
but not enough to show any real progress.
Hope you have a wonderful day filled with tatting!!! :)

Ok.....back to tatting work!!!!

Just like you, I have lots of "life" things to do like 
the (bad word) housework.  I also have lots of study 
to do since I teach the Bible year round on Sunday 
nights to a wonderful group of seniors, and spring 
through fall outdoors to a wonderful group of 
various ages from kids to seniors.
Well....last year I started test tatting Elaine P. Gan's 
Cathedral Doily(the large one on the bottom), and 
one of our seniors asked if I would tat 2 in Lizbeth 
Rainbow Taffy for her to give to her daughter.
I have posted progression of them up until I ended 
where they are now to work on craft show stock.
Well...crafts shows and holidays are done so....
Here is where I am with all 3 today.  Just about 4 
or 5 more rows to completion on the large doily, 
and the other 2 are only at the half way mark.
Hope you are having a wonderful start to your 
New Tatting Year!!!! :)

I am spoiled!!

I have new sweatshirts designed just for me.
Front with my double reindeer shuttle from 
Shuttle by Design:
This sweatshirt was from my hubby.
2nd Front (this one from our daughter)
2nd Back. 
 Tatting supplies!!!!!
 A collection of new t-shirts designed by our daughter.
 And sweatshirts(including the 2 above).
 Movies and Christmas Harp music.
 2 Christmas towels(needing tatting!), and candy!!!
 And last, an engraved peanut butter spoon
(which I won't really use due to the engraving), 
but I do love my spoonfuls of peanut butter!  ;)
The only bad part is we don't have our snow!!!

Hope you all end up with a very 
Merry Christmas!!!!
