Just some things

I found more colors of Ice Drop gems at our Walmart 
today for only 97 cents each, so...I have more variety.
 I have been working on tatting for the earrings to 
go with the pink/gold necklace.
 And, I was inspired by a tatting friend, Denise, to 
actually tat these wonderful earrings by Corina Meyfeldt.
They are tatting in size 20 Lizbeth Twirlz Patriotic.
Nicest part of this pattern is that it's a shuttle only 
pattern!!  And the beads are easy enough, it was 
tough figuring out the placement when loading 
them at first.  ;)
Hope your weekend is going well and you are 
tatting along!!! :)

All you can do is tat!!

Our water was shut off for over 3 hours 
yesterday, and then again today(our trailer 
park has old pipes and they just keep repairing 
bandaging them).  Well, since I couldn't do 
laundry or dishes and I got other things done, 
all I could do was tat.  I got to work finishing 
the tatting of the chain.  Now, all I need to do 
is sew in ends, add a clasp, and some tiny 
butterflies.  :)
 A closer view of the chain.
Have a wonderful tat-filled day!!! :)

A Sea Turtle Lanyard

We have a friend who is in a ministry 
which we are involved in and she needed 
a new lanyard for her cross.  She asked 
if I could tat her one and of course, I 
said yes.  Well, after months of trying to 
figure out what to do(her favorite color is 
purple, but she liked all the purples and I 
couldn't decide for her, so...after thought 
and knowing how she LOVES sea turtles, 
I found these beads on Etsy and bought 
them.  I had Lizbeth size 10 Latte Foam
which reminds me of sand, and will go 
with more outfits than purple would, 
and so, her lanyard was born tatted.  ;)
 One side has the ministry name, the other 
lots of sea turtles!!!  :)
I won't see her until next month(I think), 
so I have to keep my secret until then-
it's terribly hard!!!
Happy tatting!!! :)

Tatting added to another shell pendant

The picture isn't good, but it's a gray and snowy day!!
Tatted in size 40 Lizbeth Tropical Punch.
 Now 3 pendants have tatting around them!  I need 
to get to work on the chains for each, and tat around
the matching earrings(I am so lazy!!!)!!!
Have a wonderful day and happy tatting!!! :)

Side view of shell pendants & an Ice Drop

Ok, here is a picture of one of the sets of the shell 
necklace and earring sets I have been adding tatting 
to.  This is the set I will be adding the Tropical 
Punch colored tatting to.
I was asked for a side view of the pendants.
Here is a side view.  They are very thin.
 If you are wondering what is in the window, it's 
my "giant" snowman suncatcher with a tatted 
center(belly).  I have plans to add more tatting, but 
a million other things have prevented me from getting 
it done so far, but I still love having it in the window!!
 Here is a side view of the pendants I have already 
added tatting to.
Still working to empty my Tatsy shuttle and got 
another Ice Drop done.  I love this one!! :)
 And got this motif which would be a back 
of an Ice Drop, but I don't want to wind a 
shuttle to add the front.  So...my Tatsy 
is finally empty(it was only half full).
Have an awesome week of tatting and 
hopefully lots of love!!! :)

Post # 2 today

I should have been working on the chains for the 
first pendant, but....this was started and easier!!!
This is tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Ecru.
This is the same design as the first one, but the 
stitch count is a little different.  The back is the 
same without the ring in the center of the two
(it's like the back of the first one).
Well, I am not sure if I will work on the chains for 
the first or the next pendant(probably the latter 
since it's also already started).  ;)
Have a wonderful tat-filled weekend!!!  :)

***Addition to this post***
Diane was asking if this was a bead.  These are 
shell pendants from necklace sets I bought.  I thought 
they would look nice with tatting added.  Here are a 
few pictures to show what they look like normally.
 Below is the pink set(and I have other colors and 
patterns too-this project could take awhile, I think 
I counted 20 some sets).  ;)
