Just some random tattings......

These have been done for a couple of weeks and more are needed for a couple of projects I WANT done.  I will post the projects when and if I get them done.  :)
 These are Tatted Celtic Pumpkins from Rozella Linden.  I printed the pattern a long time ago off my old computer so I don't know if there is still a link online.  These are tiny in size 40 and as you can see, they are not right, but just a try for now.  :)

New Tatting!!! :)

A pattern to become easily addicted to!!!  Marilee's(Yarnplayer's) Small Maple Leaf (which you can purchase here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/130244268/pdf-tatting-pattern-small-maple-leaf?ref=shop_home_active_16    and you can purchase her HDT from that shop too).  My daughter requested these earrings and I had some of Marilee's beautiful Sugar Maple HDT size 40  which needed a purpose.  So...I got the pattern and went to work yesterday.  I tatted 4 leaves(the other set is in a different color, but need ends taken care of-I am not as good as Marilee at that, but they will be posted when done), and today I tatted another Sugar Maple set and have plans for at least 2 most sets, plus I want to make some in Lizbeth Autumn Spice and see how they look.  :)  I have a feeling I will be asked for these once others see them that is why I am making them, other than I think I am addicted.  It takes me about 1 hour per earring.  My daughter loves these!!  :)  Can't wait to see her wear them!  :)
Trying to get other things done too, but wanting more done than I can do at one time!!  :)
Happy Tatting everyone!!!  :)

??Posted before or not??

I just found this the other day and had forgotten about it.  I wanted to block the chains around the outside, but as I see it now, they remind me of the vines on pumpkins all twisty and out of shape so...I think I will leave them as is.  I bought this at Hobby Lobby a year or so ago and wanted to decorate it since it wasn't very nice by itself.  So...I tatted around it, waited to block it and find it much later and like it as is.  It's not perfect, but neither am I.  :)  I believe the thread is size 40 Lizbeth Autumn Spice.
May your autumn season be blessed!!!

2014 25 Motif Challenge # 25

I test tatted another wonderful pattern for Elaine at Test Tatters on Facebook.
This is the Justification Cross.  It's tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Sky Blue Med.
And....if you think I haven't been tatting.....I have.  I finished several suncatchers and actually want to do more, but have several other projects going all at the same time.  I am working on 2 projects(tatting of course) which have been sitting and waiting for me to work on them for a long time!  And I have others still sitting and waiting.  I will reveal the other projects when I feel they are more presentable.  :)
Happy Tatting all!!!

"Swapping or trading or exchange" Either way I hope these are equal.

I fell in love with this gorgeous woven bag from Diane:  http://lacelovinlibrarian.blogspot.com/
and we worked out a way for me to get it.  I am sending her these suncatchers this weekend and I hope she likes them.  The top one is for someone special!!  :)

Suncatchers again

Here are 2  Silver Charm Suncatcher Ornaments from the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polachic.
The first is Lizbeth size 40 Island Breeze, the second is the same brand and size -Angel's Love.
The bottom is Sue Hanson's Crystals in a Ring pattern, same brand and size thread as above, but in Caribbean with blue bugle beads.
