Nosegay Doily Complete

I love how it turned out. Below pictures show what I did.
yes that is me and husband 37 years ago.
In March of this year
And yes we made the bouquet in the picture.

I struggled to find something round to dry the stiffened doily on

I am pleased

I made the bouquet of flowers first, making sure the stem would fit through the center
the actual directions asked to make the center out of larger thread than the rest.
this would have made hole in center larger.

then slip the stem through.

Then attached the bows with wire to base and this help support the doily 
Wa La

Brides Nosegay More Rounds

I am really enjoying this doily but something interesting happens to it.

It started to cup, even though it did this, I continued on.   I didn't mind this when I plan on starching and placing flowers in center. 

Finishing the chain rounds time to start those pretty flowers around the edge so here it has begun.
I only have 12 left and then I can search for flowers.

Nosegay / Brides Bouquet Base

Beginnings of  the nosegay just sounded like fun and below is the pattern I can say the hardest part is the giant ring at the start I am making this in size 80.

I actually cant wait to place the flowers inside the middle
I have made several brides and bridesmaids bouquets but never added tatting. 

This final page even has the sugar starch recipe too!
Hope you all are doing well
This time of year I have to many "irons in the fire"
blogging is scanty take care.

Poinsettia Tatted Earings

I just thought Earrings when I saw Muskaan's Pattern

I did use size 80 thread to achieve the look I wanted. Had to only place one yellow bead in center of each clover instead of three.

Now to make another :) Thanks for the free pattern I really enjoyed making this and it was easy to understand too!

Tatting Lace with Cabbage

I finally finished the "all rings doily" and found that the winter crop looks so pretty that you might like to see this too.

The church across the street from me has a neighborhood garden and they have a final winter crop and have even harvested some of the beautiful cabbage and above is broccoli. 
It is 70 degrees Fahrenheit  here, and that is warm, but the average for October.

My camera was not quite catching the pretty green but this is so pretty and big had to show you!

Some pretty flowers that seem to actually look like same color.

This flower I can't remember the name was much more magenta here it just looks red, but still pretty.

If you live in neighborhood you can get a row (to grow what ever you like) for your family, and all they ask is that you give a certain percent to the needed people store down town. 
Have a wonderful week and great Sunday

Little Guy That Needed a Gecko.

Had fun with one of  the many free patterns from Jane Eborall's blogspot  I did find some graduated beads to place in the back  (Did add more double stitches to to larger beads.) and sent this to my grandson.
Thanks to Jane and all You tatters that make patterns for us to enjoy
Keep tatting!
