Angels in the Snow

This is Miranda's ( newest snowflake, Angels in the Snow. Recently she had a contest to name that Snowflake and I am honored among 44 other entries to be chosen as the winner! Look at the snowflake and you can see the "Angels in the Snow". We always made angels in the new snow growing up thus it reminded me of my childhood.
I am thrilled to receive the new pattern and tatting book, "New Twist on Tatting" by Catherine Austin.
Sue Ann from tat19540 was runner up with "Dancing Angels". There were a lot of great titles for the snowflake.

post cards

The first card is for a friend who will be having a birthday. The last two cards are for friends in the hospital. They work up quick with a few embroidery stitches, yarn, beads and tatting added.

Easter Tatting

Happy Easter to All Visitors!

In the Easter Basket with Mrs. Rabbit are 2 tatted Easter Eggs. The pattern is from Emma Crew. The threads used are Lizbeth 20 - Jelly Bean and Sherbert Delight. I tried to put both eggs together by gluing and it looked bad. It wasn't because they were not stiff it just did not show the tatting. I soaked one pair in pure liquid starch and the other pair spraying this clear liquid sealer. Did not like liquid sealer at all. Gluing the tatted egg to the pure white egg form made the tatting stand out. The little yellow chicks I did in ceramics way back in the 70's.
The Easter Card is hand embroidered eggs with lots of lace and sequins. It was mailed to my Mother.
