Getting some crafting time in here and there

I am working on lots of things when crafting 
lately.  I am working to get my Triangle Triangle 
Insert triangle at a time.
I thought at this point if it was green it would 
be a Christmas tree. ;)
Lizbeth size 40 Orange Crush and Pineapple 
Parfait. My own design.

And a motif at a time added to my tablecloth. The 
lower part is where I am currently working-only 3 
motifs needed on the left to finish this row. An 
antique motif and my design.

And, I started a Christmas present for our 100 yr. old. 
Hopefully it will be a beautiful collar when finished!

I was given the pattern for this January doily
from Frywolitki - Magic Shuttles on Facebook. 
 I made it for a friend who hasn't been 
feeling well for over a month. She loves it!!
I used Lizbeth size 40Leaf Green Dk., Leaf Swirl,
and Latte Foam.

I tatted Mary Konior's Small Cross for a senior 
lady.  Size 40 Lizbeth Angel's Love.

I had a senior ask me to make her a yellow rose with 
black background keychain in plastic canvas.  She 
loves it(she is from Texas). ;)
I have also made 2 more name signs, but not as 
fancy as the butterfly one.

I am learning micro-macrame and enjoying it, but 
not as much as tatting!!!  Lots of threads and no 
shuttles to "do the work". ;)
This is the first fancy bracelet I made.
This one is in 1mm waxed cord.

Yesterday I made my 2nd fancy micro-macrame 
bracelet.  This one is in 0.5mm waxed cord.
I only have 2 colors of cord in each size so this 
is what I ended up with.  Still a LONG way to 
go in my learning!!

I hope you are all enjoying tatting and crafting 
time!!!  :)

Wow, you have more projects on the go than I have! All amazing. I like the micro macrame, it’s very effective. Good to learn a new technique, even if it doesn’t become a favourite.

Thank you Margaret!! :)
Micro-macrame is macrame, just small. Mostly jewelry.
