I have a dear friend who has moved away and just lately sent me a friendship present. I am "retaliating" with a pair or earrings.
LadyShuttleMaker HDT in size 50 Wildflowers. The seed beads are unknown. The drop beads and the findings (doodads) are from FireMountainGems.
I have been working on the turquoise doily again today. Another row, is nearly finished. I need to concentrate on that so it gets finished soon.
I have another project that I have started. Many of you may have figured out that I am Catholic. Many of you may remember way back yonder when the Catholic women wore a veil or hat to Mass. I have been feeling called to wear a hat or veil for quite some time now, and resisted for a long time. I occasionally wore a straw summer hat off and on over the years, but was never comfortable. About a year ago, I started to wear a small black hat I inherited from my Grandmother.
There are many websites online offering Chapel Veils, but they are basically allover lace, no plain net. I finally found one on Etsy at LizzieLovesVintage It was perfect.
The first item to be added is this cross. It is the pattern Camilla by Lene Bjorn from her book of Cross shaped Bookmarks.
It is tatted in Jess's Grackle Mess size 80. It is a bit hard to see how pretty the thread is in this picture, so I took a closer one.
I will also be doing a bunch of VicTats's Roses are Red. Her patterns are available on her blog along the right side. or Click here to go directly to the Rose pattern on Keep and Share.
It rained about .7" by the time it was done today, so was able to spend most of the afternoon tatting.
Have a great week everyone.
