Tatting to show

This isYarnplayer's Wondrous Window bracelet and pendant from the Up and Tat 'Em book.  
They are tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Black and Crochet4U2Dye4 HDT called Sacred Lotus.
  I made these for an 80 something year old Cambodian lady who speaks very little English and joins our little church group Sunday evenings.  On Easter Sunday she gave me the necklace on the right side of the picture(it's from Cambodia).  She was very insistent that I keep the necklace so I came home and made her this set and gave it to her last Sunday night.  The expression and response were priceless!!!  :)

2014 25 Motif Challenge # 12

This is much sweeter in real life.  It's Five Petal Pendant from Yarnplayer's Up and Tat' Em book. 
It's tatted in size 60 Flame Lantana HDT from Tatskool, with Swarovski Elements Fire Opal Bicone beads.
It's not much bigger than a quarter.  :)
Sorry the picture is so bad!  The scanner and beads don't seem to cooperate!!

Just something I stumbled across and thought I would share. :)

There is a large tatted tablecloth and lots of neat things like a tatted baby blanket too.  Wish there were more full pictures, but love what I saw!!!  :)

Tatting for me in size 3

I purchased this gorgeous Corsage HDT from Yarnplayer and have tatted everything for me in it.  This long strange looking piece will be a bracelet when finished-working on pearl tatting.  And the other is random tatting which is now a candle coaster.  :)

2014 25 Motif Challenge # 10

This is Rose Medallion # 39 from Tatting with Anne Orr.
It's tatted in size 40 Fairy Dust HDT from Tat-ilicious, and Lizbeth Lilac Med.
 The picture below gives you an idea of the size compared to the Vine Medallion tatted in size 3.
In the book they are both tatted in size 40 and the Rose medallion seems a little larger, but with the size 3 it dwarfs in size(just a bit).     :)
Oh, if I remember correctly, I followed the pattern on the Vine Medallion(the big one) and yet noticed that the picture showed 8 rings around the center ring, yet the pattern calls for only 7 picots so I just did what I read.  Either way I love it!
My daughter is reading a book(downloaded to her tablet) titled Love by the Letter by Melissa Jagears and she was telling me that it mentions the girl tatting a few times.  Pretty neat!!  :)

2014 25 Motif Challenge # 9

This is Vine Medallion No. 40 from Tatting with Anne Orr.  
The directions say size 40 thread.  I used size 3 Corsage HDT from Yarnplayer.
It's imperfect(somehow), but it's so beautiful and I love it!  
And since it is for me, it's good enough for me!!  :)
And this shows how large it is.  I plan on using it as a small doily.  :)

2014 25 Motif Challenge # 8

I was tatting for International Tatting Day, but my computer is refusing to recognize my camera for some reason so I wasn't able to upload a photo of this in progress, so....
I am showing it finished because I can scan it now.  :)
This pattern is the Wave(bookmark pattern) from Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster Handy Hands, Inc.
It has a repeated mistake in it, but that's ok with me(at least it's all the same).  This bracelet is for me.  Notice the ring of the clasp has a similar pattern around it so they go well together.  :)
It's tatted in size 40 Fairy Dust HDT from Jess at Tat-ilicious with some seed beads.
I just purchased more threads and some beads with the rest of my Christmas money.  I am hoping that the Lord will provide me with plenty of time to start working on more tatting.  :)
Have a blessed day!!  :)
