Angel in Progress

The tatter's guild to which I belong began the Tree Top Angel by TATSY as a tat along project.  Here is round 1 of the skirt.  There are nine rounds.  This will be a good project to practice my split chains which I avoid as much as possible.   The color is white not the pink shade the picture indicates.

Needlepoint Santa

This is my first attempt at needlepoint.  I love Santa's so when the class was offered, I thought I would try it.  I cross-stitched for years in my early marriage.  I will post a picture when done.  The goal is to be done before Christmas.  We will see...

Jane's Bookmark Cross

Here is Jane McLellan's Bookmark Cross.  The cross design is from Grace Tan.  I used hdt Rainbow Bright from Tatskool in size 20.  The colors look much better than the picture indicates. This was a quick and easy cross to make.  This will definitely be a go to cross that I make when I need a quick gift.  I think in a solid color framed would be nice.

Mastering Tatting book

Here is another new book I recently acquired.  This one looks like it will be a nice addition to my tatting library.  Lovely patterns and clear reference information.

Angels, Angels, Angels

Here is one of my new books.  I am anxious to make them, but it is hard to choose which one to make first.  If anyone has made any of the angels, please let me know which one you made and your thoughts on it.

New Shuttle

When Monica Braxton announced that her husband was making these limited edition shuttles, I had to have one to add to my collection.  Each shuttle is signed and numbered and unique as her husband hand crafts each one individually.  When it arrived, I was delighted to see how lovely and light it is.  The shuttle is so easy to use.  Her HDT is scrumptious too.

A Wayward Dragonfly

This dragonfly didn't make it to Georgia for the fundraiser pieces.  I wasn't happy with it, so I didn't even finish it until now.  It will either go in a drawer or possibly a tail of some sort may be added to turn it to a bookmark.  The thread is another hdt from Tatskool color Apple Blossom in size 20.
