First tatting on glass Christmas ornament

I have to tell you that this won't count toward my 25 Motif Challenge because I don't care much for it, but it's done. Second, it has been mostly done except the "lacing" to the ornament for several months. A couple months after I started tatting I had been borrowing books from the library for patterns and I had borred Elegant Tatting Patterns by Janet Carroll. While choosing things from the book I was interested in, I came across the ornament patterns in the back and was curious to try one so......I did, but I didn't have an ornament to try it on so it sat for a long time(although, I must confess I did use a light bulb to see how it would look on an ornament) :D
And...today I got the book from the library again to finish this and wound my shuttle and found out that all I needed was a needle, but oh well. And since my mother-in-law gave me these glass ornaments, here is the start. Hey Marty......here it is. :D
The pattern is #10 & size 10 red thread.

Lookin' good!

Hey! It looks great! Watch out, though, these things get addictive! The lacing on is a pain in the patoot, isn't it? I really like the stand you have for it as well. I've never seen one like it before.

Great job! I love that stand too. I've done several of the small ornament covers from that book, the little 1 to 1 1/2" balls.
