TIAS 2017 and Heart Paperclip

Well Jane's TIAS is complete for the year.  If you have not joined in, there is plenty of time (no time limit).  You can find the info here.

My lady is going down a ramp (actually joined her head backwards), but she had to be different.  Thread is size 20, hand dyed by me.

I have completed February's paperclip project.  It is a heart.  The patter can be found on Georgia's Online Tatting 2017 index as well as here.  I made sure I the page is on shareable as well as tested the page.  Hopefully no problems.  Onwards to next month.  Thread was Lizbeth size 20.

I was able to play with my dyes this past weekend.  I am slowly going through The Fabric Dyer's Dictionary book.  My goal is to make samples of every single color in the book.  I have also got ideas of other mixes of colors to make as well as start playing with CMYK color mixes.  Now if I can find blocks of time to play.

Fish Paperclip

I have volunteered to a project for Georgia Seitz for the Online Tatting Class.  I will be making a piece of tatting for a paperclip each month.  The first one is located on the top right hand side of the index page.  I have ideas for a few months and Georgia has forwarded a list of ideas as well.  If anyone is interested in assisting with this project for future month(s), let me know.  We will coordinate!  Credit will be given.  Happy Tatting.
