Ice Drop Suncatcher #2

I am on a roll to use up the thread on the shuttle so
it's another size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy.
This time with a purple center gem and purple seed 
 Need to sew in that end, but it's done.
Have a wonderful Saturday and Sunday.
Happy tatting!!! :)

An Ice Drop Suncatcher

I needed a suncatcher for a drawing in the next 
Craft Show in 2 weeks so I decided to use an 
Ice Drop as the center of my suncatcher.
This is the Birthday Ice Drop pattern tatted in 
size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Taffy with iridescent 
seed beads and bugle beads and pink seed beads.
 And added to a pink bangle bracelet.
I love suncatchers and Ice Drop suncatchers 
are unique and fun!! :)  There might be 
more to come.
Have a wonderful day and hopefully some 
tatting time!!! :)

Craft Show pictures

The weather was nice and there were lots of nice 
people, but not quite so many customers.  As a 
matter of sales for me-oh well, in 3 weeks 
I try again.  ;)
 I wrote about our daughter attending Pirate events 
and wanting to take some of my tatting to their next 
event to place on their vending table.
Well, at the last event she received this shell pendant 
and she figured I could add tatting, so I did.
 Here is the full necklace..
 Here is the close-up.
It's tatted in Lizbeth size 40 Raspberry 
Frappe with little cream colored beads.
If you catch the shell at just the right 
angle you will see a glimmer of pink so 
that is why we chose(yep, our daughter 
is my color consultant) this colorway.
I think it turned out really well, and she 
is going to take it with other tatted pieces 
next weekend to her next Pirate event and 
see if they sell.  :)
Hope you have a fabulous tatting filled 
weekend!! :)

I think I am ready for the Craft Show

A few more angels and a bracelet.
And, our daughter is part of a Pirate thing(not sure 
what exactly it is, but they hold events and dress up) 
She has an event which has vending in it and the 
group she is with has a table and she has told them 
about my tatting and has been ok'd to bring some to 
see if it sells.  She wants me to prepare some items 
for a big one sometime in the summer and her 
suggestions have been slave bracelets and cuff 
bracelets, plus my normal stuff.  Now to fit all that 
in with a move this summer-YIKES!!  ;)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

Yes, I am still here and have been tatting.

I got a sweet e-mail from Stephanie wondering if 
everything was ok since I haven't posted in awhile.
I have been preparing for 2 Craft Shows-one this 
Saturday, and another Apr. 13th.
I had this choker done, but needed a way to make 
it adjustable and couldn't find anything so I decided 
to tat a split ring chain to use.  Ends sewn in and 
it's already for packaging.
 Next, I had the center of this necklace done also, 
but....again a chain was needed and a way for it 
to be adjustable, so tatting to the rescue.
 Close-up of the beads in the centers.
 And, I wanted to tat Jane's Bookmark as a bracelet 
and ran short on thread so just finished with a split 
ring tail to make it adjustable.  Tatted in size 40 
Lizbeth Niagara Falls.

*Twin Doily Update: the 2 Rainbow Taffy Cathedral 
doilies I have been tatting since last year are on row 
25, and the first one I started is at row 28(I believe).
And the tablecloth is accumulating motifs from time 
to time.
I am not sure how much tatting will be done through 
the spring because we are in a search for a new place 
to live and have to move before the end of June.
Will post whatever I can, but just know, I am not giving 
up tatting!!!
