As Promised: The tatting projects and promised threads have been: sent , blocked, mounted on cards; and, now uploaded.
The Plain Rosary was an pattern/design sent to me by LadyTats. Jeannie L. I plan to gift this to the young, Catholic woman who comes and checks on my oxygen concentrator periodically. This was done in Yarnplayer's HDT in lavender, #10
This little thank you card is from a Cross pattern by Lindsay Rodger's book, "Tatting Collage" In Flora, gold, size 50
Another surprise in Susan's box was The Flute Player, a Kokopelli figure designed by Jane Eborall. After many threads breaking, I switched to lavender size 20 Flora and made the whole head a magnetic hematite bead, rather than just an eye. A happy accident which happened because I still hadn't nailed down bead sizing. I have corrected that lack of knowledge for future projects. The twist in the first feather was done during scanning.
Now that the Olympics have begun, I tatted a bookmark today, and I'm working on the Colcha elements. In spite of it being the Summer Olympics, I chose a "bobsled bookmark" Go Figure! Thus, the crooked mile runs down the mountain of snow!
Also, tatting a pair of very special ear rings for a friend of about 30 years. And they are based upon Nancy T's Peony clover leaf pattern. I had finished one earring, except for the dangle and decided I didn't like the way it was working and changed to a different thread which Jane Eborall sent to me. My friend's favorite color is red, as is the thread! Ruth Ann saw the ear rings I'd tatted for Judy on this blog (which is why I can't tell you more about the ear rings) I love it when a plan comes together! She will be surprised! I will say there is thread, fluid silver tube beads and something else in sterling as a dangle.
