ShuttleTag and Earring-Pendant Set

Finished a couple new items that were on the bucket list before going back to unfinished items.

The shuttle tag has been on my list for a while.  I finally dyed some thread based on a couple of monsters I have seen.  Modified the pattern as written a little as I did not like the way the clovers were after I tatted the first set.  I think the next time I dye this thread it will be a little less of the yellow-green and a little bit more blue.

The earring-pendant set is from a pattern by Elaine P Gan (Facebook.com/tatting box) called Heart 2 Heart.  I used iridescent embroidery floss, 3 strands for the pendant and 2 for the earrings.  Just need to add findings.  I will be donating this set to the Palmetto Tat Days in September for their silent auction (hint hint for anyone attending!).

Two Sets of Earrings

Finished a couple of half done projects. 

The berry earrings are from Tat Days 2012.  They are called Fancy Chandelier by Anitra Stone.  Thread was hand dyed by me.  Just rings, chains and adding beads from threads.

The black ones are from Tat Days 2013.  It was the early morning tat session open to everyone.  They are called Nowhere Maze by Victoria Clarke.  Thread is Lizbeth black.  This was a fun project as is required only chains and adding beads to picots (holding with paperclips).

Both these patterns are on a CD and can be purchased here

Tatted Samples Complete

Georgia Seitz's Monday online tatting class have been working on a vintage book "Forty Original Designs in Tatting" by Nellie Hall Youngburg.  All motifs have been accepted by various tatters.  The summer goal is to tat the sample motif, write up the pattern in modern terms, diagram if possible and have ready for next years classes.  Well my four volunteered samples are complete!  These are motifs 3, 22, 29 and 10 from left to right.  One motif and three edgings.  Now for the fun part of writing up the patter and diagramming!
