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. :)
