Tatting the day away

Yesterday was filled with tatting and knitting. Since my Sanditon shawl is getting bigger, progress isn't really obvious. So, I'll post a picture when I'm finished with the section I'm working on.

I put my Art Deco shuttle from Lorraine Kolasa to use again. I had no thread left on it, so I had no proof that it had been lovingly used! 😉 This time I used size 20 Lizbeth #686, Seagreen Lt. The colors show up differently when using a white glass gem instead of the crackled clear ones.

My grandchildren are fascinated by the box of little flowers I have for Vicki Clarke's A Celebration of A Classic, and they asked if I could make them necklaces. What's a grandma to do? Each of them chose a Liz Metallic thread, and I used small stitch markers that color coordinated with the thread in place of jump rings. Luckily, I have some inexpensive chains on hand!

Janko said he didn't want a necklace, because he's a boy, but he still wanted a flower with the little ring. I'm not sure what he'll do with it, but he's happy to have one!

Kara was the most excited about her necklace. I think she wore it with at least three different outfits yesterday!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
