70 Hearts on Paperclips

Finally all 70 are done!!!! Now, all I need to do is make the individual cards for each one.
They are done in a variety of threads....Lizbeth size 20 Caribbean, size 40 Sherbert Delight, size 40 Tropical Punch, size 40 Fruit Fizz, and Yarnplayer's size 30 Nectarine. I think they turned out pretty good and I believe the ladies that will receive them will be blessed.
You can find the pattern here: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2009/ellenpclipheart.pdf

25 #2 Motifs 12 & 13 Crosses

I have been working to get all the Hearts on Paperclips done and I have only 5 to go. I also wanted to do several crosses for some wonderful ladies I know and here are the first 2 done.
They are from Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns. The Large Cross and the Small Cross both done in Lizbeth size 40 Fruit Fizz and Lilac Dk. And added butterflies.

I am on round 8 of Agasunset's tablecloth making fairly steady progress, but still 2 rounds behind. :)

Working on Agasunset's tablecloth 6th & 7th rounds

I have been hard at work trying to keep up with Agasunset on her tablecloth. I have the 6th round done here.

And the 7th round done-just finished it.

I am still working on the Hearts on paperclips-I have 11 left to do.
I have also been working on tatted crosses for some people.

Working on Agasunset's tablecloth

First four rounds done. Messed up on a couple of joins and had to cut 2 full scallops out and restart, but I have made it this far. Can't wait to see this done, but I sure love the colors Agasunset is using. :) This is in size 10 white.

25 #2 Motif # 11 Tatted ornament cover

First of all, with all the tiny Hearts on a paperclip that I have been working on I need changes of pace so.....I started this beautiful doily from: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_mpkSDy7pYwk/SrMOjUzMXDI/AAAAAAAAAj4/J3olCZIY9Jk/s1600-h/ArlenesFirstPlaceWin.jpg
My daughter picked which colors I would make it in so it's Lizbeth White and Tropical Punch both size 40. Will be added to challenge when finished.

Next.....I started this awhile back and finally got it finished. It's an antique pattern from: http://antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/ButterickTattingNetting.pdf pg. 39 Tatted Rosette #8. And the center pieces are the "Small Square at the Top"(part of the pattern).



I took this last picture to try and show that I had to go and buy a larger ornament to fit this on because there was way too much slack on the ornaments I had, but then I had to stretch to fit and then finish tatting the last 5 center pieces right on the ornament(more than thankful that it's done!!!). This is a size 3 1/4" ornament. The thread is Lizbeth Christmas Delight size 20.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on all my other posts! And keep on tatting because you all inspire me greatly! :)
