A little test tatting today.....

Elaine P. Gan asked if someone would just look over her pattern, but after the holiday and the granddaughters(who just went home today), I wanted to tat something so I test tatted this bracelet pattern.  Just to let you know I believe that the "waviness" is due to my personal errors-the pattern was fine!.  Either way, I love it!!!  I may use it as a bookmark instead of a bracelet, but that is in debate right now.  It's tatted in size 40 Kaleidoscope HDT from Tat-i-licious.  I love this colorway and wish she was still dying threads!!!!!
With all the peace and quiet I will probably fall apart after having our granddaughters since Christmas day(and having an all-nighter with them Sunday night after church.....oh, just so you know, they fell asleep at 3am).
I am praying, hoping, and planning on trying to finish up anything I started last year(or whenever) before the end of 2016.
I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas, and are having some good tatting time!!!  :)

Ooops, I guess I should tell you that the doily was loved!!!  Although, there was a total surprise twist in who received it.  Since my in-laws knew nothing about it, and my hubby was pouting the other day saying he wished he could keep it and just give them a gift card.....I decided to wrap it and give it to him as a gift-which totally surprised him!!!!  And the in-laws loved their gift card to their favorite steak restaurant.  This next year may have 2 surprised doilies(we'll see).  :)

Thank you Grace!! I can't get him to allow me to let any doilies go, but he might not get away with it this year if I can make one for him and another for his mom. :)
