A little tatting(24 hours worth) during travel for vacation. :)

These are tatted beaded garlands for some artificial Christmas wreaths I want to decorate.  I tatted them while traveling from Michigan to Tennessee and back again last week.
I tatted around the silver one on the way to, and around the red one on the way back.  They are just beaded necklaces which they sell for Mardi Gras in packs of 12.  I cut the joined section out(just a couple of beads) and then have one strand about 2-3 ft. long.  It took approximately 12 hours with breaks to tat each one.
  I really like how well they turned out!

Thank you Michelle!! :) Each has it's own charm. :)
Thank you Jane & Margaret!! :)
Thank you Madtatter!! I would have tried to visit, but I didn't know anyone lived there, and my hubby had to do the driving cuz' people were driving in Pigeon Forge like people from Chicago and I could never have gotten around with all that traffic. But I sure love how beautiful it is there(outside the town area), and our daughter wants us to go back as her college graduation gift in 2 years. :)
