Of course with the holidays and regular life mixed together somethings get set aside. I have tried hard not to let tatting be one.
These snowflakes are from this link http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_NAQjjiECFM4/TPdlsRUTIRI/AAAAAAAAALU/xfc8Vrq-Ji4/s1600/PC022879.JPG
They are tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Blue Ice and the first one(which was actually tatted second) has Petite Glass beads added for sparkle. I really like this design!!
Next, I tried to empty another shuttle by tatting Mary's Butterfly:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/69945786/My-Butterfly again. This time in size 80 DMC cotton and a metallic blending filament. I think the filament looks prettier on the spool, but it needs to be used. And my daughter wants me to tat a snowflake in it. Also, you can't see it, but....the filament broke at one spot and one of the back rings is only half colored, but the top rings cover it nicely. :) **Oops!! Now looking at the picture it looks like I got sidetracked and messed up my stitch count on the top left ring-oh well, most won't notice it. :)
The time has come
