Gifts for the Holidays

Smiley faces are from a pattern by Jane Eborall made from DMC floss.  They will be kept in my purse to give away to brighten someone's day, for kids at events we attend or anyone who might be interested in tatting. 

The doily is from Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz - Doily VI, rounds 1 thru 4.  Made with Lizbeth Root Beer Float size 20.  It is a present for my brother who is newly engaged.

There is one half of a Patti Duff's lanyard.  I started with one color of bead and it was decided to go with another.  I am using a technique from Tonya (SCMR using a ball and thread, SLT and adding the beads as I go).  Thanks Tonya.  The technique is working great.  I will use the short lanyard as a key ring.  The longer one will have a magnetic catch at one end and a clip at the other.  Made from Lizbeth size 20 Rainbow Splash.  The other half should be done this week. 

Only two more projects to complete for the holidays!
