Accidentally modified Liberty Cross and Sparkly Butterfly

I tatted this cross before and didn't mess 
up, but I made a mistake in the bottom 
this time.  It's shorter and just a bit 
different that the original, but thankfully 
it still looks good!  ;)
Oh, it's another Elaine P. Gan design.
Tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Red Burst.
I tatted a sparkly butterfly for a dear 
senior who just found out she has cancer 
and dementia.  I want it to brighten her 
day!  She loves blue, and butterflies. I found 
Jennifer Williams Butterfly Ring pattern 
and tatted it in size 40 HDT from Tat-i-licious 
called Blue Ridge and used clear beads for 
I think next week I will try to tat some 
butterflies to go to the project I posted in 
the last post.
Happy Saturday tatting!!! :)

A necklace for me & a notice about Butterflies.

I tatted this necklace awhile ago, but couldn't
figure out how to finish it, so I cut a cord
I bought and tied it to the ends, and still
have to glue and trim the ends, but I have
several good comments on it already!! ;)
Gotta love family!! :)
 Tatted in size 3 Lizbeth Autumn Spice.

Just for those who might be interested in tatting butterflies:

Have a great tatting day!!! :)

Teacup and Saucer

I am not into coffee or tea, but after designing a 
tiny teapot in the online tatting design class I gave 
the teapot to one of our Sunday night seniors who is 
the person who suggested me designing it, well, 
another senior saw it and loved it and asked for one, 
well, I REALLY don't want to tat another, so...
I found this pattern online from Kathleen Gillard Campion:
and decided she just might like it.
 Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Island Breeze and 
Raspberry Pink Med.
 Sitting on copy paper and next to my cell phone 
for a bit of size comparison.
 I like it better together.  ;)

Oh, I also got 3 more crosses done.  They are for 
my hubby's step-mom and sisters.
These 2 are Elaine P. Gan crosses.
My Portion Cross.
In size 40 Yarnplayer's HDT Beach Cafe.
 Justification Cross.
In size 40 Lizbeth Pineapple Parfait.
I just realized that I forgot to get a 
scan of the 3rd cross.
It was the Big Cross from Tatting Patterns & 
Designs by Gun Blomqvist & Elwy Persson 
tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Peacock Blues.

Hope you are having a great tatting day!!! :)

Necklace complete

I tatted the pendant for a friend who has 
Parkinsons and needed a chain that she 
won't have to use a clasp, so I tatted a 
split ring chain of 6/6 in size 40 thread(the 
pendant is tatted in size 40).  I wanted 
something that would let the pendant 
take center stage and get the attention.
 Close up of the pendant below.  It's Yarnplayer's
Star Capella.  Pattern here:
Happy Tatting Saturday everyone!! :)

Resurrection Cross

I tatted this cross with this fabulous 
HDT from Graceful Arts called Toodles.
I love the colorway, but I don't think it 
goes well with the cross.  I will keep it 
for me!!  And I will use the rest of the 
beautiful thread for something that will 
hopefully let it shine!! :)

Working on several tatted items and 
have 4 more crosses to tat, so...back 
to the tatting space!! ;)
Have a wonderful tatting filled day!! :)
