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!!!  :)

Thank you all!! :)
Madtatter80, Marilee tats hers in size 20 so they are a bit bigger, but I have almost all size 40 and the Sugar Maple is size 40 that I purchased so....mine are small, but I know lots of people who prefer smaller earrings, although, they don't look too small up near the ear. :)

Fabulous! Yes, I think small and dainty is a good choice. I can well imagine you will be asked to make more.

I agree it makes them very delicate, I bought the pattern last night you sold me on them :)
