Tatting along........

I tatted this cross for another senior who 
recently joined our Sunday night group.
It's tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Red Burst. 
 Next, I wanted to empty a shuttle and tried to tat 
my own tiny heart design.  It's ok in the picture, but 
not to my liking.
 Attempting another heart I ended up with this cute 
little motif.  It kind of resembles a heart.
 Now, this is so far off from what I thought I was 
going to tat.  I wanted a bracelet, but when the first 
round curled instead of going straight I knew it was 
not a bracelet.  I tatted the second round and like it.
 Then, trying for a bracelet shape again, I ended up 
with a pretty bracelet!!  :)
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Coral Med.(I believe).
 And, yesterday while out I found these cute turkey 
buttons.  They had little signs which said pardon me 
and pick him, but I only wanted the turkeys for these 
fabric yoyos to put on headbands or barrettes.  Well, 
our older granddaughter saw them and wanted to know 
how much I wanted for them and I told her I didn't 
know yet, and she claimed the bottom right one for 
her own and wants it put on a pin.
Her sister has claimed one of our daughter's fabric 
pumpkins already.
Well, it's been a long day after a super long sleepless 
night and we have to be up in less than 8 hours.  I 
am going to try and find sleep again.
Have a wonderful day or night wherever you are, 
and get your tatting in!! :)

Your second heart reminds me of a pansy flower. Those turkeys are adorable, no wonder they’re already being claimed.

Very prolific day! The heart shape is lovely. Cute turkeys buttons!

Your shuttles have been busy creating cute lace 🌹💜🌹
I wonder how the hearts would look if you substitute the lock joins with Catherine Wheel Join?

It looks like you're having a lot of fun experimenting!

Thank you all very much!!! :)
muskaan, those are actually Elaine P. Gan's reverse joins because I knew it would change the direction of the chains and that is what I was hoping for, but I think I had my picots too close to get what I wanted. And, thank you for that suggestion, I need to learn the Catherine Wheel join yet. ;) I believe I tried it once a long time ago. I will have to look it up on your blog. ;)

Cute tatting! And those buttons are precious. Sleepless nights make life so inconveniently tiring. Sending calm thoughts and prayers your way......
