Christmas in July Tatting Exchange

Needles and Shuttle Yahoo Tatting Group has a Christmas in July Tatting Exchange this month. Here is what I mailed to my dear lady in Canada.

Christmas Bell tatted with Lizbeth Snow White #20. The pattern is from Pam Palmer. I altered the pattern to work it in one continuous item by using a split ring. Also added beads on the bottom and one Iridescent for the clapper.

Sewed up a lacy tatting bag. The ribbon can also hang from the wrist while tatting.

Ten yards of Lizbeth Red Burst size 20, small wood shuttle with a little Lizbeth thread, some is tatted up using Hens and Chickens and a Magnet card using the Red Burst and pattern Hens and Chicken. Made a nice little hat for the dogie.
