|It has been slow going, and now I will be on my last round of the vintage doily pictured in background above.|
|I will be making the last round with single flower motifs and this will take a while to tie off and hide the threads on each separate daisy|
along with that, I am out of size 40 white :( so now got to order it.
|I was trying out another vintage pattern, it was simple and can play with colors as well.|
|One thing that I hate is that it seems to take forever to find the pattern that corresponds with the picture.|
Then I got to go back and forth to check on my progress.

One day last week (or there about) I was blogging like normal, one of my sights I visit is Westpine Creations. I enjoy looking at many pieces they make, and saw one that looks like a ring I have. Well to make a long story short this is the end result, we made a trade!
|I had some one else take the pictures, so hope fully you can see this necklace is better than expected!|
|She made a matching necklace to the pendent, because I don't like metal against my neck area, It breaks me out.|

|As you can see this time I needed special thread for this one!|
only "parakeet" will do from Marilee.
|I like my little border and to remind you all it is done with all sets of 3 double stitches and Josephine knot of 8 half stitches.|
|It's like a small handkerchief so it goes by fast! My needle work needs work, and I really should not do this in dimly lit room:) I will high light the print more in day light :)|

I decided to go with a wonderful pattern from a lace lover she does bobbin lace and tatting and gives directions for this full rose on her blog, you can find by clicking on "a lace lover".
|I cheated a bit, because I was too excited and skipped a couple rings so it would go faster. |
I saw this idea of using the shear ribbon as a vase somewhere on the internet. The ribbon is pictured a further down on post, it was on a gift that I saved.
|After cutting the vase shape and using "Frey Check", I knew how long to make the stems.|
|Once you have the stems, you place them in the vase.|
|I recommend leaving your flowers with longer threads so you can sew the whole flower down! I satin stitched the vase down on edges.|

|Another ATC card. The framed owl is just tatting fun.|
|I love frames, and found a cute print that fits in this adorable frame by Aux Navettes in her book La Frivolite|
when you use size 40 thread it is the perfect standard size of 3,1/2 by 2,1/2 for card.
|I did add snap and a little rose to cover mistake in tatting ooops!|
|When we went shopping, I had to take a picture of some great crochet handwork, for a wheel cover on a jeep|
WOW goes with my motto "if you don't wear it, no one will know you made it" ha ha ha

|This was a fun pattern, but no mention in her book about how many cluny stitches!|
Tatted Butterflies by Adeleid
|With out pressing out or adding stiffener to the butterfly, my daughter wrapped floral wire to connect to hair clip and put this in my granddaughter's hair.|
|This little model was hard to keep still at the photo shoot :)|
|I am wanting to tat lots of butterflies this summer after visiting|

|My little frame fits the ATC card measurements!|
|Wanted to make a card with a purpose.|
|Stitched this book shape with felt to back side.|
|Add some needles to make a beautiful gift with my favorite tools.|
|This little doll was printed on fabric and I used stitch "whitchery" to fuse it down, and sew to tiny square green fabric.|
|I used some stiffener on the lace part to support.|
I will be making more of these, I really enjoyed making this!
