Day 9 of 14 done!

I have gone back to the HDT for now and will 
use it until I run out, or until the doily ends-I think 
I will run out first.  ;)
I am enjoying this and I love seeing all the different 
colors chosen!!!
Have a fabulous day!!  :)
Get some tatting in for sanity!!  ;)

I am enjoying tatting along with Tat-a-Renda.  She 
is coming up with a beautiful, simple doily design.
I hope you are all having a wonderful day and getting 
tatting in while having to stay home.

Yesterday I got plenty of tatting done, and even some today

Yesterday I finished a cross that I have 
been working on(it's been a challenge, 
mostly all split rings and just a diagram 
to follow).  I LOVE it!!!
It's Katrine from Tatted Bookmarks
cross-shaped by Lene Bjorn.
I am also working on a variation of it,
but the thread broke, so I took a break.
This is tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Royal
 Next, I also finished day 4 of Tat-a-Renda's 14 Day 
Challenge Doily.
And, I did some test tatting and haven't finished yet, 
and I also added 2 more motifs to my tablecloth.
We woke up to 2 inches of snow which fell over-
 It looked wonderful and bright, but by afternoon 
we were back to brown and boring.  :)
Today I have worked on the test tatting again, 
but the thread broke so it's sitting and waiting.
And, I did get day 5 done on the 14 Day Challenge 
Doily by Tat-a-Renda.
I am concerned the HDT won't make it the full 14 
days, so I added size 40 Lizbeth Lilac Dk. 
And, our state has ordered us to stay home now, 
so lots of Bible study, tatting, and in-home walking 
workouts, besides housework will be happening.
I have had to set up a facebook page for our Sunday 
Night Seniors who have internet to keep in touch, 
and I have to record our lessons on cassette tape 
and bring them to them to pass from person to person 
so they can still hear the Bible lessons which they are 
craving now that they have no real contact with anyone 
since their senior apartment complex in lockdown.
So many in tears and it breaks my heart, but I keep 
praying this will end very soon!!!
Happy Tatting everyone!!! :)

Days 2 and 3 of Tat-a-Renda's 14 Day Challenge Doily

Enjoying this tat-along!!
Day 2 below
 Day 3 below(will need blocking!).  ;)

Have a great day!!  :)
Went to get a prescription filled so as not to run 
out during this time of chaos and because we 
don't know when jobs will resume since last night 
both my hubby and our daughter are laid off for 
and undetermined amount of time, and things were 
kind of crazy out there.  There are bare shelves in 
stores, and tons and tons of people in the stores not 
seeming too worried about being with more than 10 
people at all.  We got what we could and what we 
thought would hold us over a bit.  Praying for this 
to be over soon!!!

it's her Resurrection Cross tatted in size 40 
Lizbeth Raspberry Frappe.
Enjoying tatting in different colors!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!  :)

Every reindeer needs a little tatted bling!!!

Our daughter got me this adorable reindeer 
named Peppermint several years back.
It's wonderful, but there was a plain white 
space around the neck and in front and I 
felt it needed some tatting, sparkle, and a
little jingle!!!!
 Below is a close-up(kind of).  ;)
I just made it up.
I am almost done with another cross, but I have to 
take out 2 rings and a chain and re-tat!!  ;)
Have a wonderful tatting filled day!!!  :)

Have a wonderful day and get some 
tatting in, it helps keep your mind sane! :)

I love this design too!!!

 I did my best.  ;)

get some tatting in!! :)

My Portion Cross(I think it's my favorite cross design)

I need another cross for another senior so 
I tatted My Portion Cross from Elaine P. Gan 
book #4.  Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Pineapple 
Parfait.  The picture doesn't show the beautiful 
sunny color!!  I know this senior lives on the 
northside of the apartment complex and I thought 
she could use a "sunny" bright cross.  ;)
You will most likely be seeing more crosses 
soon because I have a month to tat up as many 
as I can for a bunch of wonderful volunteers  
who work at this health clinic I had to go to.
They treated me with such care and respect that 
I thought they deserve to be shown that I really 
appreciate it.  I have another appointment next 
month and I want to thank them with crosses.  ;)
Have a wonderful tatting day!!! :)

A one and only Mermaid sleeve

Our daughter wanted a Mermaid sleeve.  She has 
only one because she has tattoos on her other arm 
and she wanted color on this arm(thankfully she asked 
for the sleeve instead of more tattoos-which I know 
are coming at some point).
 It's laced from top to center, and from bottom to 
center in 2 laces(per her request).  It looks good on 
her and she will be wearing it this weekend.
Have a wonderful tatting day!!!  :)

Mermaid bracelets ready to go

Our daughter is a pirate/mermaid(don't ask).  They 
are having an event this weekend and have requested 
some of my tatting for their vending table.
So, I made several "chunky" bracelets, and she has 
some of the teardrop earrings I tatted, and a few 
suncatchers, and these mermaid bracelets.
 They remind me of sand and mermaids.
Below shows that they are laced like a corset with 
ribbon on the backs.
Have a wonderful day tatting!!! :)
