3- 8 inch Suncatchers

I had 2-  8 inch suncatchers in my Etsy shop and 
they sold out right away, so I have spent the last 2 
weeks + tatting to replace them.  
Here is the Rainbow Suncatcher.
Here is the Rainbow in the Clouds Suncatcher.
Below is a slight variation of the 
Rainbow Suncatcher(a slight difference 
in the beads).
I am currently working on a requested 
suncatcher of a different color combo.
Hope you are all getting some tatting 
done!! :)

A month gone by

I was told that I hadn't posted in awhile and some were 
beginning to wonder if I was still here.  Yes, I am here!
It has been a crazy month.  Things starting to open up 
here again, hubby getting back to work(3 weeks now), 
daughter getting her Etsy shop up: 
and keeping up with purchases from my Etsy shop, 
and everyday life.
I am tatting a Rainbow suncatcher and a
Rainbow in the Clouds suncatcher, and they are 
almost done. And, I have an order for one in a 
different color combination so keep an eye out.
And, I had a pair of rainbow earrings in my Etsy 
shop which sold and someone said they wanted a 
pair, so I got busy and tatted some.  The bottom 
pair were tatted first, but I used different blue beads 
than the original, so I had to tat the original, and the 
person liked the darker blue better, so, those went 
and the others are in my shop.  ;)
We had to be up at 4am this morning so...I have 
sat watching movies and tatting, and now it's on 
to everyday "work".  ;)
Have a blessed day and weekend, and get some 
tatting in!! :)

Rainbow in the Clouds suncatcher

I had an idea and decided to tat it and 
see.  I thought white with rainbow beads 
would look great and it does, so I call it 
Rainbow in the Clouds-white clouds  with 
a rainbow of beads.  ;)
Again, it's Elaine P. Gan's Cathedral Doily-
the first 13 rows of her doily, and it's tatted 
in size 40 Lizbeth Snow White with seed 
beads.
I have a regular Rainbow suncatcher in 
progress and thousands of things swirling 
in my head while several project sitting 
unfinished.....some day, some time.  ;)
Hope you are having a great week!!
Getting some tatting time in!  :)

Another bangle bracelet suncatcher

I love creating suncatchers!!!!  :)
That make me happy and I love the 
sparkle!!!
This is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Island 
Breeze.  Our daughter picked the pink 
acrylic ring to draw more of the pink 
color out since it seems dominated by 
the blue.  I think it was a good choice.
We get to start having our church groups 
together again.  We are outside for both 
groups for the first time and the temperature 
is supposed to be 92 degrees F.  Please pray 
that it's not too hot or humid, especially for 
our seniors!!  I would cancel, but they have 
been alone so long I don't think they would 
forgive me!!!
Have a wonderful weekend and happy tatting!
:)

Suncatcher time

I had an order for a rainbow suncatcher 
so it's done and gone.
This one is a bit different, but then again, 
so far I think only 2 are the same.  ;)
And, I wanted to tat one of my acrylic 
"donuts" into the center of a suncatcher.
I went simple and I really like how it 
turned out.
Both suncatchers are tatted in size 40 
Lizbeth threads. The one below is Sea 
Island Citrus.
I hope you all have a wonderful week 
and get your tatting in!! :)

I think I have tatting ADHD....

Tempted by Pamela Myers and Diane(Lace Lovin' 
Librarian)!!!  They are tatting around "donuts" and 
they are creating such beautiful items that I got 
tempted!!!  I ordered some donuts online.  These are 
glass, and my first ones I didn't really pay attention 
to size and these are really tiny.  I used size 80 thread 
and tiny seed beads.

It's so cute!  :)
I have my shuttle(in the same color scheme) next 
to it for size comparison.
And below, I placed a nickel next to it.  When it 
sits on the nickel they are basically the same size.

And I got Millefiori donuts(about the size of a 
quarter) and tried one today.  I used size 40 thread.
It's such an autumn color scheme.  The donut is 
actually transparent, but I couldn't get a good 
picture while holding it up.
And...look what finally arrived after the mail took 
a scenic detour!!!  Yarnplayer's new Solar Flare!!!
I can't wait to figure out what to tat with it!!!
I have also been tatting another rainbow suncatcher.
I goofed and somehow ended up with the wrong 
purple(compared to all those I have tatted before), 
but it's gonna stay!
And, a few more flowers on my Spring Doily.  I 
am tatting 1 at a time(which has ended up 4 in a day, 
or 2 in a day, but at least one here and there!).
Well, I hope you are all very blessed and getting 
your tatting in!!! :)

The slowest Spring Doily ever????

Well, I have tatted flower #9!!!
I am so slow!! I am still on round 13. I am giving
 it full attention, but haven't tatted more than 4 in 
one sitting yet.  That's ok, I am not in a race and 
I want it to look great!!  ;)

I hope you are all doing well on whatever you are 
tatting and that you have a tatting filled weekend!!!
