Glass Mat

Another project off the bucket list.  Every since I purchased Mary Konior's Tatting With Visual Patterns, I have had this pattern picked out to do.  Such a simple pattern; however, for the last half of the pattern, I was untatting more than tatting.  The pattern called for a 3 to 6 ratio of rings.  I modified it to a 5 to 10.  I used size 10 thread that I hand dyed.  The varigated is red, orange, red-violet.  The picture does not show the colors very well.  Might have to invest into a better photo editing software.

Earring and Pendant Set

 This set is made from Marilee Rockley's book Tatted Jewelry.  The pattern is called Keyed Up.  The earrings are done in size 20 and the pendant in size 10.  This is HDT in purple.  The dangle is mother-of-pearl.  The set is made as a gift for someone who has been very kind to our daughter.

Halfway through with a glass mat.  After seeing so many posts, I decided it was time to tat my own.  Should be done sometime in the next week or two.  Will post when complete.

Have a couple of Tardis bookmarks to complete after that.

Must admit, idle hands are nonproductive!

Another Paci Keeper

In honor of International Tat Days, I brought my tatting to work and during down time, tatted while enjoying a discounted chocolate covered marshmallow bunny.  The pattern I used for this paci keep is the foundation and 2nd row from Jane's Interlocking Ring Choker found on her blog here.  The thread is Lizbeth Size 20 white and I believe Ocean Turquoise Dark.

I am now working on my second with a third to follow.
