A beaded egg that has a bunny and flowers, it is all beads and thread so far i have it a third of the way done and i think it looks right so far.

Merry Christmas to all. I finally got my Christmas tatting done yesterday afternoon. So now back to the wedding doily and the fair doily. And the ornament book I need to get that diagrammed so it will take lots of time to get it done.

I have had a go at the Snowsetta and i have changed how to do it some. You can do the main color then do the second color as a second row so you dont have to use 4 shuttles that get tangled up all the time, you can pass a clover shuttle through the spaces you made with the main color. it is much easier. and i didnt do the aligator join either. I just put one thread on each side of the main color work and did the next chain i think it looks the same. I have Emailed Jane and she has given me permission to post how i did it.

Fair Doily

Here is the latest scan of the fair doily for next year. I still have lots more to go on it but it is growing slowly. I have also ordered thread for the Doily i have to do by next July for my youngest daughters wedding it will be pink and black the colors of her wedding. That should be fun to do I hope to get both done in time and also get my Christmas tatting done. I was hooping to get my Ornament book out by Christmas but i don't think that will happen this year. But by next year i will have more designs to put in it so it will get better.
