Still Tatting

Life has been a little crazy, but I have still managed to do a little tatting.

Monster doily has been worked a little bit as time permits.  Need to dye some more thread as I  miss read my row colors and I think I will be short.

In the meantime, we took a vacation a couple of weeks ago.  Started the Dianne Doily.  This is a very easy, relaxing pattern.  It is easy to carry and I was able to work on the airplane without problems.  It is the greenish doily in the pic.  I think next time, I will use one color (either solid or variegated) or use the darker color for rings and the lighter for the chains.

The blue and poppy beaded tea candle holder pattern is from paradise treasures.  These will be gifts for coworkers.  I purchased LED tea candles from Big Lots.  DH thought they would be safer than regular candles.  Will make another for us next year.  Got other projects and Tat Days 2016 patterns to complete.
