Tatting with Mother Nature


Broken glass is soothed by the ocean and sometimes called  "mermaid tears"

Practicing random tatting and trying to just shape it around the glass.

I will need more practice 

The leaf is inspired by Pinterest and Carolyn's  Shopping my Stash blog
I need to work on the best type of coating for a leaf the craft glue was not as great as I thought.

Finally my dear husband gave this to me, the day before mothers day.  He loves to carve and has instructions on his blog Here

  11. The mermaid tears look wonderful with your tatting, Mad! The leaf is very interesting, but it must be rather fragile, I assume. Lovely carving from your DH.

  12. Yes, the leaf is fragile but I did coat it with glue but I need to switch types of glue because the craft glue did not stick that well.
