Am actually tatting

I have actually been tatting when I get the chance, but I haven't been able to show much.  I tatted an Autumn Spice garland, but I haven't got a picture of it yet(I will).  And while sitting at the hospital with a friend an older man asked what I was doing(tatting dreamcatcher earrings) so I showed him, and he saw my small garlands and he asked if he could buy the silver with red, white, and green thread-so I made a sale sitting in the waiting room.  And, I started this pattern from Jane Eborall found here:  http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/CelticFriendBracelet.pdf
I love her colors!!!  I am making this for a friend with Cerebreal Palsy(hopefully it's spelled right).  And when I am done with this bracelet I have to make me the same one cuz' she wants us to have friendship bracelets(mine will have a blue center-her favorite color is purple, and mine is blue).  :)  
This is a project which takes tons of my attention and really good lighting!!!

One reason I like doing this pattern is the fun of using colours!!! It's always a surprise to see how it turns out!!!

I chose it as a challenge piece for me because of the fabulous colors in the picture on the pattern. I also like it because it will be a little different, yet the same as friendship bracelets which will make my friend happy!! :) Thanks so much for sharing the pattern(as you have with so many wonderful designs of yours!!). :)

Bracelet looks great. Would love to see both bracelets side by side before you give one away. And that pattern looks complicated. Four shuttles!!

Thanks Madtatter80 and mb duke!! :)
mb duke, I will do my best to show both bracelets when done(because, I too want to see them side by side!!). The pattern doesn't look complicated and it truly isn't, but it's a lot of concentration making sure everything gets joined where it should. It's just rings and chains.....and yes, 4 shuttles. :)

The concentration will be well worth the effort!

Thank you Jane!! :) I agree. I have about 2 inches complete. It will take some time, but I think my friend will be very pleased!! :) Now I can't wait to see mine. :)

Thank you Aysh!! I can't wait to get them done, but they are going slow and I am hoping NOT to make any mistakes!! :)
