Tatting and Test Tatting

Ok, I have been in choker mode even though it's 
not my thing.  Our daughter has loved the ones 
I have test tatted for Elaine P. Gan and suggested 
I tat more.  
Also, I was invited to a March Craft 
Show and my family has encouraged me to go.
So....I thought about the Spiral Bookmark pattern 
as a choker for teens.  Pattern link here:
Tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Ocean Teal Med. & Snow 
Next, I started Jane's Bookmark for another possible
choker -pattern here:
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Niagara Falls.  It is now
sitting because, while closing a ring the thread 
broke and frustrated me.  ;)
 This is my tatting spot on the livingroom floor 
gaining more and more tatting stuff(I NEED to put 
some away!!!).  In the center of the picture are the 
2 Rainbow Taffy Cathedral Doilies I am tatting.  
They are now each ready for row 22 of 33.
 And, I have been test tatting for Elaine P. Gan
(she has a blog now- )
again.  To start I tatted her Simple Heart Earrings
(without the decorative picots) in size 20 Lizbeth 
Ocean Teal Med.
 Then, Gifted Earring(I only did one) in size 20 
Lizbeth Snow White.
 Then Acorn Earring(I only did one).
Now this one is not complete.  I missed 
tatting the top chain because I was 
watching Kids Baking Championship 
with our daughter and got a tad 
distracted just before the end of the 
pattern.  Our daughter thinks this looks 
like a fancy Victorian heart.  ;)
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Elderberry Jam.
 And, then I tatted Tear Drop Earring.
I think I love the Acorn and Tear Drop 
Earrings best so far!!!  :)
This is tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Snow 
I am test tatting the earrings using up 
thread on shuttles to clear a bunch of shuttles.
I hope you are tatting productively 
especially if you are stuck inside in the 
frigid temps some of us are experiencing.
Have a wonderful and warm tatting day!!! :)
Just finished another test tatted earring.
This one is the Exquisite Earring.
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Black.

I hope there will be a market for chokers. Pretty earrings, I like the purple one best.
