25 Motif Challenge

Motif #7 is egg #13 tatted in Raspberry Ripple with Vanilla HDT by Tatskool. This egg was simple to make in one round. A reminder that the eggs are coming from TATTED EASTER EGGS by Kirsten Wind Hansen.
Happy tatting,

25 Motif Challenge

Motif #6 is the tree designed by Jane Eborall. I really like this tree ornament. It was tatted using Lizbeth #144 Leaf Swirl and red glass seed beads.

Someone I Am Glad To Have Known

My heart is broken. Gina Brummett has been a wonderful tatting and blog mentor, teacher and friend. Although we never met face to face, we exchanged several emails over the years. I began reading TattingGoddessUpdates on Yahoo groups several years ago and went on to follow her blog when she gave up moderating TGU.

I began my blog because she hosted a PIF giveaway, and I won. One of the stipulations was that the winner would post the PIF picture on their blog and host a giveaway to "pay it forward". Gina was very instrumental in the creation of my blog and gave me excellent advice. I have a few pieces of her tatting and crochet--they were already precious to me, now they are even more so.

I will miss her tremendously. My prayers are with her family.

Happy Valentine's Day!

My dear husband is the best! He gave me this lovely bracelet for Valentine's Day. It is a Ronaldo design. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds goes to Spina Bifida Research.
I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy tatting,

TIAS 2012 Completed & 25 Motif Challenge

Please meet the debonaire William T. Goat. He is such a classy and friendly guy. Can goats be classy????? Hm...oh well this one is!
Thank you Jane for hosting so much fun for tat land. You are an incredible teacher and so generous to share your love of tatting and vast knowledge with us. I personally hope that one day I will be able to meet you at one of the wonderful tatting workshops.
This is motif #5 in the 25 Motif Challenge.

25 Motif Challenge

Motif #4 is Egg #11 tatted in "Sunset" HDT from LadyShuttleMaker with yellow seed beads. I think I broke more beads than were actually tatted in the design. I have never experienced seed beads with that small of a center hole. Finding a bead that would work got to be very frustrating. Other than that, the design was simple to tat even with the SCMRs.Happy tatting,

TIAS through Day 9

Here is my TIAS through day 9.

I finally got to catch up since there was no tatting this past week. Hoping to finish another egg from the TATTED EASTER EGG book before the Super Bowl Sunday class snowflake.

Happy tatting,
