Today's agenda

Pumpkin Pies and Tatting
I need to have 8 pumpkin pies for tomorrow night 
so....I will be busy today, and since cooking time 
is 40-50 minutes....
 I figure there will be tatting in between, and I 
still have 2 test tattings to do.
Have a wonderful day and hopefully lots of tatting 
too!!! :)

Test tatting & Restocking

I have been able to test tat more for Elaine P. Gan.
I have realized that she must use larger thread 
than I do.  I prefer and have mostly size 40 so..
When I finished the 2 crosses I realized they are 
almost the same size as the photos on the patterns.
Love the designs!

Next, I needed to restock and be prepared to tat for 
next year's Craft Shows, so...he is what I have gotten 
so far.  I do have other items needed, and some were 
on back order so I have to reorder them later.
Lots of thread and beads for all different projects. 
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Tatted bookmark? And Angel ring

I was able to test tat a bookmark for Elaine P. Gan, 
but...I used size 40 thread and clearly she must use 
a larger size because you can see it isn't bookmark size.
I tatted it with my Snowflake Shuttle, and used 
Yarnplayer's Snowflake HDT-so beautiful!!!
I might tat 2 more of these joining to the end to 
make a better sized bookmark.
 I have the most awesome shuttles ever!!!!
I special ordered them from Rita at Shuttle by Design:
I love them, and there may be more on the way!
 I also tatted West Pine Creations Angel Ring,
 link here:
I used size 40 Lizbeth Christmas Red and Snow White, 
and adjusted the stitch count which made it look 
different than hers, but our daughter loves it!!
Have a wonderful Saturday!!! :)

Spending, spending, spending......

Well....not exactly yet, but all the online carts are ready.
I have plenty of tatting supplies I want or need, or just 
need to replenish.
But....while searching for all the things I want or need 
I found beads that remind me of 2 Lizbeth thread colors.
Seed Beads Czech Beads Glass
Looks like Lizbeth Caribbean.
And...
Seed Beads Czech Beads Glass
Looks like Lizbeth Coral Splash.

Well....back to deciding to actually push the 
proceed to check out buttons on all 6 carts.
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

A Second Craft Show

Saturday I was able to participate in another 
Craft Show.  My husband, daughter and friend 
were all there to help(so thankful for that!!).
The tables were fully loaded with things.
Pictured below is the "front" table with mostly
tatted items.
 Next is the side table with items made by our 
friends.
 A close-up view of our Christmas tree 
displaying tatted angels, Ice Drops, 
and a few snowflakes.
 Next, is mostly tatted jewelry, and a 
few bookmarks.
 A better view of the center of the table.
 Our daughter convinced me to sell some of my 
ornaments with tatting on them(so hard to part 
with!!!).
We had a great day!!  I already have the information 
for 2 of the Craft Shows to join in next year, and am
working on getting information for at least 4 more.
Have a wonderful day!!!  :)

Thanksgiving Day Tatting

Well, I had to do something while sitting and 
watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade,
so I decided to try a Pop Top Drop. I used the 
center of Diane's Capstar design.  It ended up a 
little large and loose, but I am going to use it for
a Christmas ornament so it isn't a huge deal
(although, I could take out possibly 3 rings and 
it would fit tighter then).
 Here is the back.
 Then I decide to try my idea to bring the ring 
count down to 6 for Diane.  I ended up with 7, but 
I think I did pretty well for a first try.
 And here is the back of this one.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! :)
Have a great weekend and happy tatting!! :)

Tatting for the Craft Show and for orders

This necklace is made from a stone that was 
in an ugly silver frame necklace that I found 
in some jewelry my mom had(and never wore,
I think someone must have given it to her).
The thread is Lizbeth size 40 Spice Cake, and 
it's just simple rings and chains. The stone is 
heavy.
 I also thought some Christmas bracelets would be 
nice so I used my Tatted Bugle Bead or Ladder 
 design, pattern link here: 
These are tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Christmas Delight, 
one with silver bugle beads, and the other with gold.
 And..at the last Craft Show a lady purchased a pair 
of Small Maple Leaf earrings, and I just got a request 
from her for 2 more pairs for some friends, and then 
she asked if I still had a pair of Christmas Tree earrings 
and I did, and she wants to buy them(see them here:
Well, back to tatting and everything else.
Have a wonderful day tatting!!!
