Tatting for the Craft Show and for orders

This necklace is made from a stone that was 
in an ugly silver frame necklace that I found 
in some jewelry my mom had(and never wore,
I think someone must have given it to her).
The thread is Lizbeth size 40 Spice Cake, and 
it's just simple rings and chains. The stone is 
heavy.
 I also thought some Christmas bracelets would be 
nice so I used my Tatted Bugle Bead or Ladder 
 design, pattern link here: 
These are tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Christmas Delight, 
one with silver bugle beads, and the other with gold.
 And..at the last Craft Show a lady purchased a pair 
of Small Maple Leaf earrings, and I just got a request 
from her for 2 more pairs for some friends, and then 
she asked if I still had a pair of Christmas Tree earrings 
and I did, and she wants to buy them(see them here:
Well, back to tatting and everything else.
Have a wonderful day tatting!!!

A Christmas Necklace for me

I tatted a Christmas necklace for myself.  I had the 
charms and wanted to tat a necklace to go with them.
 Well...they don't go very well, but I like it anyway.
Tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Christmas Delight with 
silver beads and the charms.
I plan on wearing this to the Craft Show.
I have more angels done.
Have a wonderful day and get your tatting in!! :)

Progress and a surprise

I finished 2 angels and a pair of Small Maple Leaf 
earrings this weekend.  Lots more to get ready for 
Craft Show on Dec. 1.
 And the surprise was for me yesterday.  I went to 
our Sunday night church and my in-laws said they 
had something for me.  It was actually from their 
apartment complex manager.  She knew I do tatting 
because she has one of the crosses I tatted, and she 
told them she was going through some books and 
found this and knew that it was for me.  Wow!!!
I have the shuttles and now the book!
Busy working on about 3 projects at the same
time so...off the computer and back to work!
Have a wonderful day and get some tatting in!  :)

Post #1 Pink Firm Foundation Cross

This is another Elaine P. Gan design.
It's only about 2 inches tall.
It is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Pink Blossoms.
Just before the Craft Show I was busy trying 
to get some of Yarnplayer's Small Maple Leaf 
earrings done.  I made some for our daughter 
quite some time ago and she gets constant 
compliments on them.
I thought some ladies might prefer a golden 
leaf, but no one seemed to want them.
They are tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Honey Drizzle.
 I also tatted them in my favorite Lizbeth Autumn 
Spice(size 40), and both pairs sold quickly.
The picture below shows that Lizbeth size 40 
tats up to the size in the pictures on the pattern.
 And, today I tatted them in size 40 Lizbeth Falling 
Leaves.  Lots more tatting to get done!!!
I want to play with some of my new colors 
of thread, but....important things have to 
be done first....hmmmm...maybe something 
needs to be tatted in one of the new colors(wink).
Have a great day and get your tatting in!!
This was the first of 2 posts, but Blogger 
switched the order so don't miss the post 
before it.  ;)

Post # 2 A white angel with blue beads

Love this angel!! :)  Prettier in person!
Size 40 Lizbeth Snow White with blue 
beads.  Larger beads than the Christmas 
Angel.
I also got 1 Small Maple Leaf earring done, 
and 2 angel wing centers done and ready 
for the final row before starting the 
bodies(skirts).
Have a wonderful day of tatting!! :)

A Christmas Angel

 I wanted to add beads to an angel and I 
thought I would start with Christmas 
colors.
I love it more now that it's done!!
When I had just the wings done it looked 
ok, but wasn't really inspiring me, but 
now I think it looks great!! :)
I love beads that you can see through!
I am working on the pink cross and then 
I want to start an angel with blue beads.
So many things I want to get done, but I 
am not able to do as much as I want.
Have a wonderful day and try to work 
on some tatting too!! :)
