Christmas Angel Finished

Here she is all Finished!
I changed the Halo I didn't want to stiffen it so I used a metal 
center and tatted it to a bangle bracelet so it would hold it 
shape year after year.
I also used a shuttle shaped bead and attached her tatting to it.

Christmas Angel

Here is a scan of the bottom row
As you can see I added beads to the bottom
I think it needed some weight to help the skirt lay properly.

Christmas Angel

Here she is tonight I still have about 3 inches more to do on her skirt.
I never thought I would do this much mignonette tatting. 
Using a picot gauge sure makes it look good.

My Canada Adventure

well some of you know I went to Canada for the wonderful tat days!!  Well this year we went up on Thursday and didn't plan on coming home until Monday so we had some free time to see some of Canada, well on Friday morning we went to the  butterfly conservatory it was great!  Then we went to the classes in the afternoon and again all day on Saturday. Then on Sunday we went to Hamilton to see Dundurn Castle it was a great trip and a fun day. Then on Monday we packed the car to come home by the way of Ottawa!  I had no idea it was going to be a all day trip we left the hotel around 7:15 and we didn't get to Ottawa until a little after 3!!  Then we had a very short visit with David and Justine (Maureen Lawrence's children) It was great to see them both but we had to still drive back home. So we left Ottawa around 4:30 and finally go home around 9:30  It was a very long day but it was a good trip.  During the convention I won a auction group that I wanted so badly it was 3 Danish magazines they are wonderful!!!  and a shuttle made by a Danish gentle man

fair entries

Here are two of my entries for the New York state fair! I entered 5 items but I didn't take pictures of the others. I will post how I do when I hear.

I worked hard to get things done for the fair. I have hand a problem with my hand for awhile now and finally went to the doctor i had trigger finger, Well I had surgery on Monday so it is all gone my hand still hurts some but it is much better then it was. I am just hoping that when they take off this bandage it gets better soon so I can get back to tatting.
