Gottcha! This is the last post for March. I wanted to end the month with a tatted piece that was finished! So many interruptions by chatty Cathy’s slows up my tatting progress because I can’t listen and talk; and still tat successfully. But I can walk and chew gum at the same time!
This is the Blue Rosary for Luz Melendez, my friend and co-great grandmother. LOL She is a very sweet, fun lady.
Began a second rosary for the Paternal Grandmother of baby Zella. Georgia likes earth colors, so has chocolate pearls and I’m using Coco-Lime HDT (it looks really great so far). I want to incorporate two rectangular, polished tiger eye; but, of course, can’t put those in a split ring. They would be the first three stones above the cross. I wish I’d bought an antiqued bronze crucifix and charm; but, didn’t think it through and bought sterling. I do have platinum pearls, but she really likes browns, greens ~ even her Christmas tree last year was all gold, tan, bronze and green and was really stunning.
I’m currently trying to fill a custom order for dimensional blooms and leaves done on a baby’s headband. You’ve seen the Baby Headbands with flowers, I’m sure. This Momma wants tatted flowers. I have an iris pattern by Marie smith that pulls up and is dimensional; and, I have a rose that also gathers up and would fit on a head band. But Momma would like the ‘flower’ or decoration to be at least 2 1/2 “. So time to put my thinking cap on; or, search for patterns. Oh and the sheep are still a graze and waiting for attention along with Jane Critter’s for a babies quilt. I had better be around for a long while.
Don’t forget to pray on April 8th, that is the day I have surgery for the fistula. I’m a bit apprehensive since I don’t know this surgeon. If it were Dr. Schwartz in YC it would be a breeze as he has such a great surgery and team.
