Still tatting along.....

I made these 2 suncatchers quite some time back, but didn't get them on the rings.  The first is size 40 Lizbeth Blue Ice with cheap beads and a snowflake doodad in the center.  The second is size 60 Tatskool's HDT Flame Lantana with crystallized Swarovski Elements bicone beads.  These 2 are for me!!!
 Next....I have finished round 5 on my green project and even sewed in the ends(a major first for me!!!).  I am now ready to add the final touch and prayerfully this will be awesome when done!!!  :)
**Don't expect it done this weekend though**

Your rings are beautiful. Both are beautiful--the one using the less expensive supplies is no less beautiful than the other. Tatting makes everything look special, doesn't it? :D I look forward to seeing your green surprise when finished. It is looking good.

All I can say is, WOW! Those are awesome sun catchers! The green motif is gorgeous. I hope when school gets out we can get together again! It was so much fun spending time with you and Cheryl. :-)

The suncatchers are really pretty. Good to make something to keep now and then!

Thank you all for all the wonderful comments!!!
Diane, Cheryl and I have been so frustrated not being able to make it during the winter time-and the time her dad was dying, but we sure hope to be able to make it again soon!!!
Margaret, the green project is a surprise gift for a friend and it is almost finished-due to be given to the recipient the last weekend in June(but finished and posted on the blog as soon as possible).

I love these suncatchers! I recognize the doodad and like the way you attached it. The beads look great in both pieces, and that's a clever way to attach to the second ring. Well done! And the green piece gets more and more impressive!

Happy Tatting Day!

Thank you for posting the sun catchers--I have been wondering how to attach to rings, and your photo gave me two great ideas! :) KF

Thanks Kathy and Kristen!! :)
About the second ring Kathy..I was looking for a different way and it just happened. And I really like how it came out!! :)
Kristen, I am so glad you have some ideas from my suncatchers. I usually just wrap a thread around the ring(bracelet) drawing it through each picot as I go and tie it off at the end, but then I used the method for wrapping around a ring as Jon Yusoff(http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/) uses in her book, but I only did it here and there on that second suncatcher. And now I am doing another and covering the whole ring with the same method. :)
