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.

1919 Square Medallion

I liked this design when I first saw it.  This vintage medallion works up so lovely.  The pattern can be found in the May issue of TATTING TIMES.  I like Karey's slightly modified version with less picots as the square is actually more defined than with the original amount of picots.

The thread is Choco Raspberry by Tatskool in size 20.

Not All Mice are Bad

The Morgan Mouse designed by Wanda Salmans is super adorable.  I will definitely make some Christmas mice for the tatting tree.  I much prefer the lacy kind instead of the breathing kind. 
This one is tatted in Yarnplayer's HDT color Tourmaline in size 20. 

Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July.
