Hector Projects

This year I have now finished two projects from Hector Tat Days!!! I think I should only take two classes from now on because I have finished both of them. I usually only get one done if that I start them all with good intentions but then I get distracted. The top right is Angelina taught by Kaye Judt. The center is Shirley Angel that i taught. Then the bottom center is the Imp taught by Vicki Clarke. They are sewn on the Angel Landing Pad, Karey put in the teacher bags

What i have been up to

I havent been tatting much lately. I got out my knitting machine and took a class on how to make scarves and it was great to learn how to do things on this machine, But then i realized there is so much more i could do if i had all the parts to it. So i was looking for another machine and found a great one with more things than i know what to do with so far but i am learning how to use everything slowly. Last night i worked on lace knitting and i made a scarf for one of the girls i work with it turned out beautiful. It is amazing how teh lace just falls off the machine i made a 500 row scarf in about 2 hours.

Yesterday during the day i went down to see Karey for a meeting and getting things ready for Hector!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a fun day to get some tatting done not much to much chatting and having fun.

Tatting Patterns

I have a question about putting a book together, would it be easier to just put the patterns separately or in a book? Which do you think is the best that patterns are for Christmas Ornaments. I have 17 patterns now that i am working on getting diagrammed which i think is the hardest part. But i was just trying to get idea of the best way to get them out i was thinking it might be easier to sell them individually more might actually get made if you only purchase the one or two you want to make. Plesae leave any comment they will be usefull to me.

I finished another ornament on friday but i think it need more work i wanted it to be able to hang nicely without a glass bulb inside it, well it does hang but i think it need more stability so i will work on it some more soon.

I also wanted to show what i got in the exchange i did with the Fringe elememts it was a wonderful winter exchange i got my gift from Tina Neudorf.

New Ornament

Well it is kinda like one I designed in the fall. But I wanted to change it some and try a new idea and leave the glass ball out of the ornament but still have it look like a ornament. So I got out the bangle bracelet and used it for the center to make it round and put a small ring at the top to hold it shape. Now i am working on another idea with out the glass ball in it.
