Just finished!!!

Just a reminder picture of the necklace.
I sewed in the ends, added a toggle clasp 
and ring, plus butterflies on the pendant
(pictured in the bottom picture).
 The earrings are done and findings added.
I would have a picture of the whole set, but my 
computer memory card reader erased the pictures 
twice, so we will deal with these.
 Here you can see the butterflies on the pendant.
Happy tatting!!! :)

Patriotic Stars

I bought the size 20 Lizbeth Twirlz Patriotic thread and 
these have come from that thread.  This is the Birthday 
Ice Drop pattern from Ice Drop Addicts on facebook.
Have an awesome week of tatting!!! :)

Just some things

I found more colors of Ice Drop gems at our Walmart 
today for only 97 cents each, so...I have more variety.
 I have been working on tatting for the earrings to 
go with the pink/gold necklace.
 And, I was inspired by a tatting friend, Denise, to 
actually tat these wonderful earrings by Corina Meyfeldt.
They are tatting in size 20 Lizbeth Twirlz Patriotic.
Nicest part of this pattern is that it's a shuttle only 
pattern!!  And the beads are easy enough, it was 
tough figuring out the placement when loading 
them at first.  ;)
Hope your weekend is going well and you are 
tatting along!!! :)

All you can do is tat!!

Our water was shut off for over 3 hours 
yesterday, and then again today(our trailer 
park has old pipes and they just keep repairing 
bandaging them).  Well, since I couldn't do 
laundry or dishes and I got other things done, 
all I could do was tat.  I got to work finishing 
the tatting of the chain.  Now, all I need to do 
is sew in ends, add a clasp, and some tiny 
butterflies.  :)
 A closer view of the chain.
Have a wonderful tat-filled day!!! :)

A Sea Turtle Lanyard

We have a friend who is in a ministry 
which we are involved in and she needed 
a new lanyard for her cross.  She asked 
if I could tat her one and of course, I 
said yes.  Well, after months of trying to 
figure out what to do(her favorite color is 
purple, but she liked all the purples and I 
couldn't decide for her, so...after thought 
and knowing how she LOVES sea turtles, 
I found these beads on Etsy and bought 
them.  I had Lizbeth size 10 Latte Foam
which reminds me of sand, and will go 
with more outfits than purple would, 
and so, her lanyard was born tatted.  ;)
 One side has the ministry name, the other 
lots of sea turtles!!!  :)
I won't see her until next month(I think), 
so I have to keep my secret until then-
it's terribly hard!!!
Happy tatting!!! :)
