Just a little tatting today

I finished the earrings to join the necklace.
Now I just have to sew in ends and get a hook 
for the necklace.
 Here's the close-up.
Going to rest and get ready for tomorrow.
Have an awesome Sunday and happy tatting!! :)

Pretty beads and pearls to add to my tatting.

I needed clear purple beads so I got some, and I 
wanted the pretty blue beads, and then I saw the 
beautiful teal pearls and couldn't resist.  
Happy Saturday, and Happy Tatting!! :)

A test tatted butterfly and Row 12 of 33 on the Cathedral Doily.

It's beautiful but looks a tad different than Elaine's.
I think it was because I kept getting overly distracted,
my mind refused to stay in one place!

I am continuing to make progress on the doily.
About an inch more and I will have to take pictures 
because it will be too large for the scanner. It's 
about 6 1/2 inches across, and this row took just 
under 2 hours to tat- how do I know this??  I sat 
down, turned on the tv and a movie was just starting 
on Hallmark an it was a 2 hour long movie and I 
ended just before it did.  ;)
Hope your day is going well!!
Happy Tatting everyone!!! :)

Row 11 of 33 done.

Detail on previous post.  Making progress!!
Happy Tatting!!! :)

Row 10 of 33 done

Well, it's finally back on track!!! :)
Just a reminder, this is Elaine P. Gan's Cathedral 
Doily design and I am test tatting it.
It's being tatted in Lizbeth size 40 colors.
Center is Purple Splendor, next is Wildflower Garden,
and now it's Coral Splash.
Happy Tatting and have a wonderful day!!! :)


A Purple Minty Fudge Ice Drop

This is Diane's Minty Fudge Ice Drop tatted in size 
40 Lizbeth Purple Splendor.  There are adjustments 
made to the center back and front, but the outer round 
is according to the pattern(that is why the chains don't 
look right, but I think it's a pretty flower shape this 
way.
Still working on emptying this shuttle.
Have a wonderful day and hopefully some tatting too!

Re-tatted Row 9

The chains are much better and have that arch!!
  Well, I am trying to empty shuttles again and I saw 
that the center of the doily would go well into a bangle 
suncatcher, but I don't have clear purple beads(some 
on order), so it's just a hanging decoration.
And, while trying to empty shuttles, I also have 
a possible necklace pendant all from the center 
of the doily design.  ;)
Hope your day is going well, and you are getting 
some tatting in!! ;)
