Tatting, tatting, tatting(just little bits) and blocking(finally)

Well, yesterday between Sunday groups I tatted!!!  :)   I tatted this cross from Tatting Patterns from Mary Konior(the most expensive book I have ever bought!!!  I paid $50 for it, but I have several patterns I really want to tat from it when I get the chance!!!).
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Splash.
Next are a couple of items I test tatted for Elaine P. Gan.  I haven't done much test tatting with many, many things going on, but I jumped back into it and got 2 done, and hoping to have more soon!
This first is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Niagara Falls. A necklace pendant if you are wondering.
This next is size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Splash. An earring if you are wondering.
 Emptying my shuttle and playing.  :)
 I finally found my foam pads and got busy yesterday blocking this 2014 Spring Doily!!!
I got it wet and started pinning, but it was drying quickly so after I got it pinned out I sprayed it down with warm water(heavily!!!) and am giving it 2 or 3 days to dry completely and then I will unpin and take pictures and post!  :)

If you are wondering what's next as my friend here in town keeps asking....I have more crosses to tat, earrings to tat for our granddaughters, plenty of already started projects to try and finish(that will take a miracle!!!), and so very many awesome patterns I want to tat!!!
Hope you have an awesome tatting day!!!  :)

Wow! You sure have a lot to show. Can you guess which piece caught my eye right away? If you guessed Niagara Falls, you're right!

Thanks Diane!! :) A lot to show, but all small. ;)
And of course since we both love blue I know without a doubt which pieces will catch your attention!!! :)

Some how I keep missing your posts and that mean I am missing out on lots of your beautiful creations, I love pinning things down it is a great feeling of completion. The Blue motif is beautiful and is it sold individually or from a book?

Hi Madtatter80, the blue motif is actually supposed to be a necklace pendant and there are earrings too, but I didn't tat them(and they are almost rectangle in shape). I believe these will be in Elaine's next book which I will post the link to as soon as it's available.
