Holiday Bracelet and Earring Set

For the last few days I've been working on a special order from one of my customers. She wanted a Holiday Bracelet and Earring Set in Red, White and Green. The request included that the earrings be 2 inches long and the bracelet 2 inches wide in this particular tatting design. I ordered in the thread and worked it up and here's the results.

Motif: C3-2


It came out better than I originally thought it would. I think the color spacing on the thread worked up nicely and the way the earrings turned out they can be used with either ear wires or posts. I'm very happy with how this set turned out and I think my customer will be also.

Score!!

Look at what I got!  I have the others and this completes the set.  I lucked out and found this on Ebay.



Now I know a lot of you will say they sell for a really high price now but, as I said...SCORE!  I got this for $36.00 !!!  It arrived today from the UK.  It's in perfect condition...doesn't even seem to have ever been opened.  Now I have all of her books!  I'm a very happy tatter today!

Ryan and his Wreath

A new little bear! Ryan is only 2.5 inches tall standing but he's ready for Christmas! He's gotten out the Christmas Wreath which is decorated with gold beads and a red bow. However instead of putting the wreath on the front door, he's decided to wear it around his neck!

Ryan's Wreath is tatted with Lizbeth threads in shades of dark green and accented with gold beads and a red satin ribbon bow.  The Wreath is removable.


Ryan is currently available at a special holiday discounted price in my Peachtree Cottage Etsy Shop -

Another New Color Test

When I first saw these new colors I thought they would make up well together and they did.  The lighter one is shades of cream, ecru, light tan and reminds me of old vintage, tea stained, lace.  The brown is a deep rich shade that makes me think of dark semi-sweet chocolate.  I used them together in a Quatrain Bookmark.  The Quatrain motif was designed by Joelle Paulson.

With this I will be starting my 3rd set of 25 Motifs - Motif # C3-1:

I am also trying to split my blog to have a seperate one just for my tatting.  My new Tatting Blog is Tatted Delights - http://TattedDelights.blogspot.com

To coordinate with that I have also set up a Tatted Delights Etsy shop were this bookmark can be found - http://TattedDelights.etsy.com
