Personal challenge update

Ok, I finished # 14 of 24.
This is Christmas Bauble- with a floral band 2013 by 
Jennifer Williams tatted on a glass ornament which 
is approx. 3 inches across, and it's size 20 Lizbeth 
Snow White thread.
 I tatted the center band as the pattern says, then the 
top and bottom sections around the band, but it 
wasn't enough to stay on the ornament itself so, 
I tatted chains to the bottom section of 3-6-3 joining 
as I went around to draw it in.
 Then I pulled a string 
through the top picots and pulled tightly and tied 
it off and added a dab of glue, let it dry and cut 
the tail threads. 
 I would need to get 10 more ornaments done before 
Christmas to meet the challenge, but with so many 
things happening and a friend in the hospital for a 
month so far(I have to take care of his home and bills), 
I have resolved to call this enough for now, 
and continue to try.
I filled in the empty spaces with tatted 
Christmas Ice Drops. 
Below is the picture I am sending to the 
store which I bought the ornament stand 
from which requested a photo of it filled.
Maybe people will learn about tatting, and 
maybe they will sell lots of stands.
The store is Bronner's Christmas Store, link
It's a gray rainy day today.  I hope you 
are having a wonderful day!!! :)
Happy Tatting!!!!  :)

Wow, your 'tree' looks spectacular! You've done a lot of baubles, especially as life has to go on.

Fabulous display! It's been quite a few years since Dave and I visited Bronner's. It was magical!

Lovely baubles. I have found that baubles come in so many shapes and sizes so that very often a pattern will not fit a particular one. Patterns often need a bit of adapting, a little frustrating but well done on doing that. Great display

God's Kid said...

Thank you both very much!!! :)

What a lovely display! Your green ornament looks especially nice in front of the evergreen tree.

Love your ornaments! For some reason I have a heck of a time with these and getting the tatting to fit the way I want it to. Nice work!

Wow, Love the array !!!

God's Kid said...

Thank you all very, very much!!! :)
Cindy, I have trouble getting mine to fit too, especially at the end. When pulling tight, I worry that I will break the ornament in my hand.

I loved visiting Bronner's! And that's where I got bit by the angel bug. I still have yet to finish my tatted version of a machine made lace angel. I can't quite get the swirl effect of the skirt in the tatting. But, I'll keep trying. Thank you for sharing your stand full of joy!

Thank you so much picotsnkeys!!! :) I would love to see your angel when you get it done!!! :)
