A Pop Top Drop

It's Diane's Silver Crowns Ice Drop pattern from 
Ice Drop Addicts on Facebook.
A picture to show how it started.
 Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Salmon Med. with tiny 
iridescent beads.  I love how it came out!!!
 The doily and the Pop Top Drop both bring lots 
of color here!!!  For the last several weeks the snow
had been melting and everything was brown, but 
this morning everything is white and since my 
Christmas tree is put away I really needed some 
color!!!!  :)  Yay tatting!!!
Have a wonderful day with tatting!!! :)

Daniela Mendola tat-a-long doily finished

I finished!!  :)
The link to the pattern is here:
It's size 40 Lizbeth Bright Yellow, Sunkist Coral, 
Raspberry Pink Med., and Christmas Green.

Thanks for all the suggestions and well wishes 
on my calf pain.  I am hoping it goes away.  I 
think it could be a bad cramp like when I was 
pregnant for our first and it lasted 3 days and 
was horrible!!
Have a super day and get some tatting in!!  :)

Got 4th row done

It took a bit, but I got it done.
I wanted to show you after sewing the 
ends in, but...I forgot.
I am on the final row, but....I found 
a mistake on the 4th row and had to 
figure a way to make it work.
I can't do too much because something 
is causing my right calf to hurt and it's 
swollen so, tatting is something I can do 
while just sitting around.
I am half way around the final row so, 
I might be able to show it tomorrow.  
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!! :)

I got one point of the 4th row accomplished.

I had to do it my way to get it to work out correctly.
I started at the ring where the "tails" are coming out, 
tatted the top section, then came across the bottom 
joining appropriately.
Now I believe I have 10 more to do.

Hope you are getting your tatting in today!! :)
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Row 3 done

This row went somewhat quickly.
I kept thinking "fabulous daffodils" for some odd 
reason(only thought could be the colors).  ;)
Size 40 Lizbeth Bright Yellow and Christmas Green.
Pattern found here:
I have restarted row 4 three times today so I am 
letting it sit until my brain can process how to tat 
it.  It shouldn't seem so hard, but it could be from the 
lack of brain cells due to a really odd schedule 
lately.  Oh well, I shall continue to try soon.
Have a wonderful week!!! :)

Daniela Mendola tat-a-long Doily

Many have joined in Daniela Mendola's tat-a-long: I ended up seeing it after the 3rd row was posted. Well,
I have been wanting to tat something with colors from
these flowers
that Marilee Rockley-Yarnplayer made into a
hand dyed thread(HDT). I love the flower colors so I
thought I might have some colors close. So...I started
and have the first 2 rows done.
The threads are Lizbeth size 40 Bright Yellow,
Sunkist Coral, and Raspberry Pink Med.
Have a fabulous tatting filled day!!!

Muskaan's Sway My Heart- Addition

Worked on muskaan's Sway My Heart-link:
I added some regular chain and then some 
treble tatting(not the best, but learning in 
size 40-I don't know how Ninetta Caruso does
 it in size 80!!!). 
If I get time again, I would change it a bit and 
bring the treble tatting into the center. I do 
like the effect with the rings and the treble tatting 
in a row.  
Have a wonderful day and get some tatting in!! :)

2 Pink Crosses

This is Elaine P. Gan's New Cross(with an 
error) in size 40 Lizbeth Pink Parade.
 This is her Chantilly Cross in the same 
thread. A few errors, but I repeated them 
so they are not noticeable.
Been busy and actually unpacked 2 boxes 
yesterday.  There are tons more boxes, but 
a little progress is far better than none!!!
Have a fabulous tatting filled day!! :)

Muskaan's Sway my Heart center

Picture is not great, but then again, neither 
is my heart.  ;)
I am not quite sure what I did wrong, but it 
doesn't look terrible.  ;)
Deciding on whether to try an outer row or 
start again with a larger thread.  I used size 
40 and I believe Muskaan used size 10.
Maybe then again, since this heart is swayed, 
it fits the challenge??

Have a great day and don't forget to 
tat even a few stitches.  ;)

A Bracelet

I tatted a bracelet. I had a much different plan in mind.
 I wanted clovers in a row and tip to tip, but, when 
tatting it curved into a circle(square), so I just tatted 
several and had to figure a way to join them per our 
daughter's request, so...this is what I ended up with
-not following anyone's pattern, just tatting. Size 10 
Lizbeth Mocha Brown Dk. with wooden beads someone 
gave me a long time ago(for my kids-when they were 
young to use). I have to add a clasp yet.
Getting some tatting done!! :)
Have a great night!!

A Heart and unexpected guests

This is Gloria Nelson's With All My Heart in Lizbeth
 size 40 Caribbean. 2nd picture is size comparison.

Our daughter had a pirate event today, and my hubby 
got called into work so tatting is less interrupted, but 
while talking to a friend on the phone there were 
unexpected visitors checking the mail.  ;)  How many 
deer does it take to check the mail??  Apprently 4 or 
5.   :D
