I have been tatting. several of my projects are private and can't be shown, but this can.
the threads are size 20 Lizbeth, in dark olive and Carousel. The beads are 2 sizes of seed beads, 10/0 in the wings and I think 11/0 in the skirt. The beads in the skirt were a free gift from Fire Mountain beads and didn't have any information. and I also used tear drop beads. I have no idea of what color these beads are called, they are multi colored iridescent.
The skirt stands up just fine see...
the heart pattern is Small Tatted Heart by Betsy Evans.
I was lucky to have the little face bead in my stash. it has a large hole through it from top to bottom, so will have to come up with a wig to cover that.
here is a look at what it would look like if the wings worked
we have had 2 major snow storms in the past 4-5 days. Saturday night through Sunday morning, we got 9" of snow with only a little bit of wind. Tuesday night through Wednesday (today) afternoon, we got another 9". this more then doubles the entire amount of snow that we had received in the whole rest of the winter.
I wasn't able to get out of our yard today, so didn't get to work. Farmguy will have to get the yard blown out tomorrow morning so I can get there. At least it is the end of February, so spring will be here soon enough.
Hope you all had a great Leap Day.
