Monster Doily on Hold

Due to the upcoming Holidays, my monster Jan Stawasz doily is now being put on hold.  I will probably work here and there (maybe) but for the most part it will be put aside until after the new year. 

In the meantime, I have started Doily VI from Jan Stawasz's Tatted Treasures.  The thread is Lizbeth size 20 in Root Beer Float.  I will probably only go through Row 4.  Just wanted to make something quick and easy for an engagement gift.  The happy couple with be visiting in a couple of weeks.

I also have a lanyard to make my hubby (a request from Tat Days).  There is also a pendent on my to do list for my daughter from a couple of years ago.  Now is probably a nice time to get that item done as well.  I seem to be in a tatting gift mode.

Decoupaged Shuttle

Had to try my hands at decoupaging a shuttle.  I like Tinkerbell.  I found some stickers near greeting cards at a store.  The directions were ones that Lace-lovin' Librarian and Decoromana have on their blogs.  The first try resulted in a not so smooth top. Using very fine sandpaper, it was sanded down and restarted.  This is the result of the second try.  Much better but not perfect.  I only did one side.  I do have some fabric and two other shuttles to play with.  I see a possible shuttle for every holiday in the future!
