PinChick's Kiss Kiss, Plus More!

A kissing fish

I saw a fish and changed it a bit, and
put it on a paperclip
Kiss kiss

I think these would work as earrings too. 

I made an gold fish but it swam away, No kiss :(

 Below is a wonderful dress picture that was sent all the way from Italy to me, after posting Thumblina's dress.   She loved it and made one of her own!

Looks Great Ada! I love the variegated color!  and it is fun to make the hanger too, it just the finishing touch.

Impatience Got The Best Of Me

I do love the tat along, and of the two I started...

I decided to make the blue and white my favorite one, be the Renulek's doily

While we were waiting to see if she was going to go through with the game, I decided to guess what the next round would be, and so I like it enough to keep it and keep making a guessing game that I play.
Now that I think about it, it would be fun in a year or so to have
other tatters make up a round that goes with the one before :)
that would be a cool challenge huh?

Chalice Cover In Florescent !

Exciting bright but maybe to modern for me.

I am trying capture the color on camera.

The colors are from this "Artise" brand embroidery thread.

I thing loops should be made larger and thread should be more of a size 20
Here is the lovely pattern given freely by the artiste on Instagram.

Another One Started

So I started another of the  latest spring doily by Renulek 

This time I really wanted to get the center right. and choose this method.

I didn't tie it off till closer to the end, I have rough time seeing and knotting at the end and get the rings  out of order.
this works better.
below one is size 40 and other is 80.
I am happy with the first one and I am going to try to keep up with both
Have a wonderful Sunday and rest of the week too.

Tatted Pearl Mat Part One

A simple knot to tie three shuttles together, two colors can be the same. And one shuttle can be a ball of thread.
I used three shuttles.

  Leaving one of the three shuttles out, as you begin a chain of 5 double stitches divided by 2 picots, then trim your hidden threads.

Form a U shape, and drag the thread we put aside at beginning over to form the next U on opposite side. In this case the purple thread.  Note keep that single thread a bit short, it will stretch a bit. 

Repeat to form the pearls of the chain to a length you desire,  Wait here for next instructions I will post shortly, or you can try to go on too next row on your own.  

This was done with two variegated  threads and red I did shoe lace trick at times but really don't recommend, cause I was originally trying to clean off shuttles..

Pearl Tatting Mat

All chains, and all fun in size 20 thread.

Something about this look, I just love.  It is different and I originally was cleaning off my shuttles.  This was a bit of a mind teaser with 3 shuttle but enjoyable.

I saw something like this and it was square and spun from the center.
This is done with out breaking the thread making a strip then a turn and then another.
A picture of when  it was young :)
I was so busy in April I forgot to show what I made for grandchildren with felt. 

Two different tails beaded and two had buttons.  I love sewing felt.
Rabbits really do hide in vegetables you know.

Little doily

I really enjoyed tatting this little doily made from a motif from a book called " Tatted Artistry "
I cut out a piece of plastic an wrapped around to get all picots same size.

there are two different ways to put together,  I liked this the best.

have a great tatting Day!

Tatted lace dress finds an owner!

You can use a wooden bead or this time I had a bead I purchased on Ebay!
One wire folded in half and looped through head then arms and so on.

Craft glue to wire, and a peach tatting thread.  I made arms too long and snipped them shorter just dipped the ends in glue so thread won't run away. 

Shoulder straps too long, and tied them together in back.

I just tatted rings in black for hair to match the China girl face then left long ends and attached to wires from frame in back of head.

And here, she will wait for Granddaughter :)
