Row 11 done

Renulek's 2021 Spring Doily.
I have about 1/4 of row 12 started already.
I also have 3 points of the final row on my Christmas 
Doily started.  This pattern has given me some fits at 
the beginning and now the end, but I am getting it(I 
think).  ;)
I REALLY need to learn to work with downward 
joins!!!!!  I tried when I started the red row, but 
forgot when I picked it up and had too much done 
to go back and correct it, and now with this, I am 
NOT changing it!!!  Too much frustration!

Have a wonderful tatting filled week!!! :)

A different colored suncatcher

I just finished this suncatcher.  It's  for 
a friend.  Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth 
Purple Iris Dk. and Rainbow Taffy.
It's another 8 inch suncatcher.
I really like how it turned out.
I need to try other colors!!!  :D
Hope you are having a great day filled 
with love and tatting!!! :)

My Diamond Point Snowflake pattern is available to purchase.

 Since I am new to selling online I 
am trying the most cost efficient way 
for me.
I created a facebook page for selling 
with our daughter's Mermade Creations.
Here is the link:
Thank you to all who encouraged me!! :)

Have a great Easter weekend!!! :)

Christmas doily continues! And Large Rainbow Suncatcher update

I have the red section done!  Seems like it took 
forever!!!  ;)  And looking back at my blog it looks 
as though I started the red around Feb. 1 which tells 
me that it took about 2 months, but I tatted lots of 
side projects too!  ;)
Again, this is tatted in size 10 Lizbeth Christmas 
Specialty pack.  And it measures about 20 inches 
across.  One more round to go, but it's another one 
that is like tatting 2 or 3 rows at the same time.  I 
am sure it will be wider than this table when done. 
And I will have to block it into submission if the 
next round doesn't flatten it out!!!

I just finished the tatting part of this large Rainbow 
Suncatcher.  If I do anymore tatting today, I think 
it will be on the tablecloth and then tomorrow the 
Spring doily.  ;)
Have a wonderful weekend and get some tatting in!! :)

Some updates

Here is what I worked on this weekend.
I tatted a "chain" for the mermaid pendant and
added beads to imitate bubbles.
I did a zig zag chain(3 first half stitches
and then 3 second half stitches) and I
added some beads our daughter got
that resemble bubble and match the
thread perfectly.
My Christmas doily has about 5 hours more work on this
round. I timed myself tatting one section up and it
takes me a 1/2 hour and then another 1/2 hour down,
so that is how I have estimated my hours to finish this
round. ;)
My Spring doily continues to grow one week at a time.
I also tatted another round on my rainbow suncatcher. Only 2 rows of red left to tat with a total of 288 beads
in just those 2 finishing rows(I already have them
strung and ready to tat!!) ;)
I hope you have a tatting filled week and lots
of joy!!! :)
