2014 25 Motif Challenge # 18

 This is Traditional Cross  from Tatting Patterns by Lyn Morton.
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Angel's Love.  As you can see I still have to sew in the ends, but I like this cross.  I never tatted it before because I didn't care for the look of it in the book, but I really like the look tatted here!  :)
This is a start on a test tat for Elaine  P. Gan at Test Tatters.  I love these colors together.  They are size 40 Lizbeth Raspberry Pink Med.  and Fruit Fizz.  :)

Tatting is getting done slowly.

I have made these before, but this is a first in making some into earrings.  They are based on a pattern from the book Tatting with Rings by Jon Yusoff.  The pattern is Semarak on pg. 25 and I used the bottom part as my example.  I have made plenty of the dangles(the bottom row) before.  These are a request from a lady at a store where our daughter just got a job.  I hope she is happy with them all.  :)
They are all tatted in size 40 Lizbeth and the earrings are Lilac Dk., the dangles are Bright Orange, Lemon Yellow, and Christmas Red.  :)

I could use some Help with finding a color. :)

One of the ladies in the group I am making crosses for said her favorite color is Mauve(and she likes Victorian colors).  I looked at the Lizbeth color selection from Handy Hands and there is no mauve.  Do any of you have similar taste in colors??  Any suggestions for her bookmark??

2014 25 Motif Challenge Motifs # 16 & 17

I have been test tatting for Elaine P. Gan at Test Tatters on Facebook.
First is the Hanging Garden Cross 2 from DMC Tatting Book(Elaine designed the cross).
It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Sky Blue Med.(it's unblocked).
Next, we have the Tina Motif Cross also designed by Elaine from Schiffchenspritze by Tina Frauberger 1921.  It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Rainbow Splash(ends not sewn in yet, nor blocked yet).  :) 
Both are great patterns.

2014 25 Motif Challenge Motifs # 14 & 15

First, is the Santa Fe Cross by Pam McCormack from the book Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle  edited by Barbara Foster.  It's tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Med. And it's just a little bit bigger than the picture in the book.  I missed 2 joins and tied them and sewed in the threads.
 Next, is the Tatted Cross by Dee Powell from the same book.  Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Lime Green Med.
I like the "X" design in the center of this cross.
I finished the first cross and tatted most of the second during my "time-out" due to the gas main break.  I survived and ended up with 2 more crosses for the ladies in our Sunday night group.  :)
Have a great day!!!  :)

No tatting to show, but I do have tatting time because.....

the construction workers around our area(a lot of them) just cut into a gas main right on the corner and we are the closest mobile home to it, so they won't let me run my air conditioner, or have any windows open, and I had to close all register vents.  So, what else is there to do other than tat???  Nothing.  So, I am off to tat and endure the constant visitations to check for gas in the house.  :)
Have a great day everyone!!!  :)
