Just something to show. :)

Here is what my mother-in-law did with the 5 tatted suncatchers she got from me. Pretty neat idea! She says the sun makes them sparkle in the day time, and the lamp make them sparkle at night when it's turned on. :)
This is Sue Hanson's Val's Suncatcher:  http://freespace.virgin.net/bo.hanson/Tatting/CrystalRing/CrystalsRing.html

She just put large paperclips(not very decorative, but she doesn't mind), on the ends and clipped them to the bottom edge of her lampshade. I am glad she really enjoys them and the other ladies in her apartment building are jealous and really like it(makes me worry a bit). :)

Don't you love when you see something and it gives you a lightbulb moment. Well, thanks to you, I just had one of those moments. Now, if I can just make it happen. <3<3<3
I love your suncatchers BTW

Hi, Godskid. I like your work. You really tat up a storm. I am a Christian too.

Hi Madtatter! That's awesome! It's great to have other Christians tatting too! :)

Just posted the product of my lightbulb moment. You'll have to let me know what you think :o)

Great idea to make them light catchers rather than sun catchers.

I LOVE your suncatchers, and it's nice to know they are appreciated! In some art galleries this lamp display would be considered avant grade and might command a high price! To your mother, it is priceless!

I have many rings in my stash, and want to fill them in!

Jane, I was really surprised when I saw the display and I too thought it was really creative. :)
Thank you Kathy! They are not hard to make and I love all the different colors! :)
