Remember those tatting projects I promised?

SUCCESS! I can now scan and upload from my mac!

I keep my promises! First up is a Butterfly from Palmetto Tatter's Book of Butterflies!
In a rose hue in Valdini ~ size 12. This was for the October Tangled Challenge at In Tatters.

My big project this fall is my first doily, "Sheep May Safely Graze" ~ a pattern by Karey Solomon. BTW,
only a limited number of copies and it will not be reprinted.
The roses are in HDT ~ Pizzazz! and the leaves are
Valdini ~ a dark green soft cotton in size 12.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the stores, and every one is tatting Christmas motif for gifts, exchanges and . . . just because!

This is my first (this year) tree and it has beads, but they are hard to see Designer: Pam Palmer from, "Tatting Treats 2".
This too was done in dark green Valdini, size 12 as I had the thread on my shuttle! The bottom is red DMC size 30.

This is a very easy tree and works up really quick!

Yea for success! I love the butterfly! Those roses look gorgeous, and the tree is wonderful (I have that pattern)! If you say it's simple, then I guess I can do it after all. It's one of those patterns that just looked to complicated for me. I'll check it out!
