To replicate this is tricky and from the start, wow!
This little beauty is called "Pinecones" from the book called
Tatting Adventure by Ben Fikkert I also wanted to reduce it to one knot instead of two and not cut ends like above.
|After about three of these I was successful and pinned out with my hairspray trick below.|
Finally passed that hurdle
I have wanted to try is for years and so glad to make it to this point :)
Now I can calm down and have at least two projects going at same time, at least:)

|This time I change colors so much I don't have to do any jumping to next round, I like thinking what color comes next and so tatting along with the release time is great for me.|
|This last round was from our wonderful Marilee and I think snowflake is the name. Before that, was an over the counter sewing thread (I said that like it was flu season)|

I decided to tat in white, and paint the colors on, No matter way Jane's "Tat And See" was. I could use colors accordingly.
Hopefully Janemactats doesn't mind me using the name Milly it is a cute name :)
|I used size 10 thread for the hair|
Start with acrylic paint and water down, this is very permanent
I used to tie dye, it will not wash out.
|I couldn't wait so blotted dry. Some color bleeding when on, but not too bad|
|I did both sides.|

I found it a dream to tat on with fine thread no Fidgeting around! So Now what I was trying to see if removing the paper afterwards would work.
Size 80 was delicate I knew it would need better support but really didn't want to tat any more and realized not tatting inside would be back to fidgety :( This was flimsy, what to do?
I could do the filet lace like Ninetta on her blog at times, but realized I don't know how to do that, and no time.
|Beads I added Beads :) it really helped and little hair spray :)|
Almost Forgot beside the Heart is the beginning of the doily from Renulek's 2018 Spring Doily, I enjoy the tat along and the option to buy the pattern from her Etsy page
I also changed my mind again and instead of changing colors I am going to stick with the one I got :) more on this next week.

It is a very tiny one like an ornament, had fun buying the tiny tassels Hobby Lobby, but will make them next time with a bead crimper like they did.
stiffened with white school glue.
After a day of playing or tatting or watching someone else tat, it really does make you sleepy.
Leana looks like an exotic princess below.
|No bigger than a shuttle I'd say.|
Finished that other sock would you believe :) and knitting is harder than tatting :) or harder for me to keep count at the least!
Of to make miniature dream catchers

|Another Spring doily with Renulek join the fun! The back ground is for you Knot Vortex I picked one of her threads for a pervious Spring doily :)|
Ice Drop Madness, Omitting Josephine Knots
I had the thread on the shuttles with beads from another project and thought why knot? :)
So I realized why I have not been doing drops more often?
And now I remembered it was because I bought a huge bag of the wrong size . So off to Hobby Lobby, again I go, and armed with the 40% off coupon on my app and got these gems instead.
This time it was fun taking my tatting with the almost finished product (like Jane at Janemactats blog suggested from Nicola Bowersox's patterns) to the store with me to see colors.
So When reading over the basic pattern to make Hexie, I realized lacelovinlibrarian aka Diane, suggested that if gem is too small you could put in hot water to snug it down, so I did and pinned it out.
Have a wonderful weekend, and more heart strings projects coming soon :)
