I have been tatting along. Lots of things going on and keeping tatting limited, but still progressing. My husband wanted a tatted lanyard(but NO beads). So, after trying a couple of patterns and failing, I decided to try this. Nice thing is that it should be durable since my husband is quite hard on things, and it holds the weight of all three crosses he wanted on it(and they are heavy).
It's tatted in size 10 Lizbeth Angel's Love and Turquoise Twist.
First picture is the whole thing.
Next is just the lanyard.
Next is so you can see that I used a large single ring at each end and over lapped them.
Next is a scan of it. :)
Have not had much chance to work on my secret tatting, but it's not a huge secret anymore since my husband walked in unannounced one day and saw it....so it's going to my mother-in-law and her husband.....and my husband has one coming next year(hopefully).
I got to work with one of my senior tatting students this week. She is tired of making rings and joining them, so we worked on learning chains. I don't know how much practice she is getting since she has been enduring headaches that are lasting weeks.
Well....tomorrow(Lord willing) I will be tatting and watching Christrmas movies(on Hallmark Channel) all day. :)
Have a wonderful day and hopefully tatting time too!!! :)
