More tatting to show... :)

These 2 designs are from the book Tina Frauberger Schiffchenspitze 1921 pg. 47 top design 
in Lizbeth size 40 Orange Crush, and the second from page 56 bottom design in Lizbeth size 40 Raspberry Frappe.  I had to kinda guess the pattern since it's in a different language, but I think they turned out beautifully!!  :)
 These next two were just to play with the new Lizbeth size 40 Rainbow Splash thread!!  :)  They are from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist & Elwy Persson.  The first is from page 39 Star no. 2, and the second from pg. 35 Star no. 2.  Such fun colors!!  :)
 This one is supposed to be a heart from the book Ultimate Book of Tatted Doilies pg. 8 titled Heart #8.  I am not sure why it's so round and doesn't really resemble a heart, but I like the colors!  This thread was dyed by a sweet young 6 yr. old boy who named it after his grandpa-Ampie size 20.  I am going to get this to him.  :)
 Next, is a Lizbeth size 40 Orange Crush suncatcher.  A friend of my mother-in law wants me to make her suncatchers now too.  So this is the first.  This pattern is Silver Charm Suncatcher Ornament from the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polachic and it's attached inside a bangle bracelet in the same manner as in this tutorial: http://hiskid66.blogspot.com/2013/08/michelles-requested-tutorial-attaching.html .
 This last piece is my own design(from the last post)  Flutterby Square.  It's tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Raspberry Pink Med.
I failed at my 25 Motif Challenge for last year.  Not that I didn't tat 25 things, but I was hoping to do 25 "new to me" projects so that it would be a challenge.  I am hoping to start fresh and succeed this year.  I am already working on my first project and hope to show it soon.  :)

I love your Flutterby Square. I did not notice it in your last post as I was mesmerised with the colours in those threads. The new Lizbeth Orange crush is lovely tatted up. Glad I ordered a ball but I have not used it yet. Soon! Good luck with this year's 25 motif challenge.

Failed?? No, you just created an opportunity for a new challenge this year!

This post has a lot of pretty things to see. Love the Tina F ones. I find them challenging.

Beautiful motifs. All the colors are so bright and cheery. Is that sun catcher attached to a bangle bracelet? Can you share the pattern?

God's Kid said...

Hi mb duke!! Thank you for the wonderful comment!! Yes, the suncatcher is attached to a bangle bracelet. The pattern is from This pattern is Silver Charm Suncatcher Ornament from the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polachic.

Beautiful motifs!

You've been busy! Great tatting. My favourite is the square looking motif in orange squash. I do like that thread colour, and the shape too. Good luck for the next challenge.

Thank you Jolimama!! :)

Lelia said...

I , like you , didn't quite get 25 Minitats done, either --- did tat 25 items.

I was looking at my books yesterday and need to pick a new book!

I finally found the Workbasket tatting collection for $25 [second hand] on line. It usually sells higher than that. Should be here in a week or two.

Thank you Maria!! :)

Your tatting is amazing and I love reading your blog even if I don't comment enough.
You have done a great job with the Frauberger patterns. Not easy ones to read.
Could do with some of your snow with days over 100F here at the moment.
Congratulations on your 28th Anniversary - you are an inspiration. Hugs from Australia.. xx

I love my snow, but am more than willing to share since they say we have over 100 inches now.
Thanks for the wonderful wishes and compliments!! :) Sending shivering hugs your way!! :)
