Silver Heart

I ordered some shuttles from Handy Hands a few weeks ago for an upcoming trial, and decided that I needed some gray thread. Our of all the threads, the only color I could find was silver Lizbeth, so I ordered some in size 20l.

Remember my post about Heart's Desire by Susan Fuller?

Finally got it right! ^^

Also this weekend I spent some time with M, and had a lot of free time..

I'm on the fourth row of eight (I think?), and this row is kicking my butt.. I've never been able to keep the spacing between even, and this isn't. Ans so long as I can ignore the tiny mistake.. I think I'll like this doily. It's from "A New Twist on Tatting," and is pattern #26 (I think...) and is in Lizbeth size 20 Caribbean.

Also, while we're waiting for th severe storms to appear..

Thought I'd share this night shot of my pansies. Will have to share a new pic later, since they've EXPLODED since this was taken!

Happy tatting! ^^

My Sepia-Tone Valentine

I have been tatting, but with the loss of my camera (the brownie got it, I just know it!!), I haven't been able to share. I've borrowed my sister's camera for now..

I had the shot all nice and pretty, and then the camera decided to say no..

So I brought them all inside and took another picture, this time on white cardstock.

Sorry it's so blown out; I couldn't control the flash like I usually do..

Patterns are from left to right:
Teri Tatbit, Sadie's Heart
Jon, Mother's Day Heart

As for the Celtic one.. That's one that I'm working on. When I get the pattern sorted, I'll share.

Also made another pair of earrings..

The beads are blue, though you can barely tell. Love this pattern!

All of these are in size 20 thread, Lizbeth colors Ecru, Mocha Light, and Mocha (I think?)

I have a few more pieces to show, but those will come later (wanted to get some more to add to them, as they're all a theme..)

Happy tatting, all! ^^

Some Tatting

After my last pair of earrings that I posted, I was contacted by a friend who wanted me to try these in some different colors. I still need to hide the last end, but this is where they are now:

Soon they will be flying off to live with her, but I had to share.

Have been having troubles with the internet lately, and hopefully they have been resolved. I have a whole host of things to do, so look out! lol
