Wacky Wednesday

I just had to title this post "Wacky Wednesday" because it is very rare that I post two times in one day. I decided it would be easier for me than doing one long post.

The photo above shows my most recent tatting. I tatted this name tag and am quite pleased with how it turned out. Of course, Jane E.'s technique page made all the difference in the world. What great instructions for "Adding a bead to the center of a split ring"! I know I will use this again and again. Thanks Jane =)

You can also see that I started my lanyard with the same thread - Lizbeth Island Breeze in size 20. This was what I started on International Tatting Day. At least now I have enough done that you can see how all the colors look. I really like this thread!

Here is the cross I tatted for my dear mil, Sue. It's the same pattern I used for the green and yellow ones I tatted recently. I just love this pattern! For this cross I used Flora HH in this lovely purple color. I think that brings me up to ten on my 25 motif challenge now. Woohoo!

Now I really need to get back to working on the table favors for Shuttlebirds NEXT WEEKEND!!! I am only a little bit excited, can you tell?

Have a great day!

Very pretty tatting. I'm so enamored of tatting that I really ought to take time to learn it!

I really like your tatted name tag. I know I have alphabet beads. I guess if I want one, I'd better get going on it!

You are doing some great tatting and the thread you used has such gorgeous colours.
I also loved the little pillows from your exchnage. Both are beautiful.

Okay, I guess I better eat some crow because I didn't know [or remember] that you tatted!!!! OMG, you do beautiful work!
It's so good to hear from you.
