I have been working on a few designs of my own which has been quite challenging. There has been a lot of picking out, cutting out, UGHs, and total rethinking of what I had done. One of the designs has not been completed yet, so it will have to wait for another time.
These went through many versions and mistakes until I finally settled on this version. I think I will be making quite a few of these as I have a number of friends you are very patriotic. This pair, the original, belongs to my mother.
I think I posted another version of this with a black bag and a red lower. The flower is my design using principals from ANKARS tatting. The leaves are Scheif leaves using the pattern for Gerdes Butterfly posted on Georgia Seitz web pages. This bag will be going to a dear friend named Cyndi.
Finally, Jane Eboral's Flamingo. I could not find a verrigated pink and white tatting or crochet thread at the time I tatted the little guy, so I used three strands of DMC floss. I think it worked out pretty well. Since then I did find some pink and whit thread at Michael's craft store. This little guy belongs to another Jane who is also very dear friend.
Well, that is all for now.
Happy Tatting everyone!!
