Autumn Leaves, With Mingnonette Tattting

Having fun with one shuttle tatting, but ended with two shuttles for split rings at end!
When I say one shuttle I mean not ball thread just thread on shuttle.
Working on place settings for Thanksgiving just the edge is two shuttles. this leaf was very thin and tore hole little bit on the leaf by the letter D then covered a layer of that flexible glue it didn't dry yet!

Ordered some very beautiful shuttles from Ukraine and early present to self )

Wonderful Knitting by Margaret and Tatting Lace :)

I placed and order with our Margaret, she did a fantastic job, Thank You!  She lives over the pond an this came just in time! 

The outfit came with cute mittens, which he loves having on for some reason he kept waving. 

He also loved the adorable monkey buttons too, and he is 7 months old if you are wondering. Margaret's stitching is superb, and the yarn is so very soft too :) Thank You! Margaret!
She sells on Esty and will take orders too! 

I have been occupied with so many things but always wanting to tat. I started this from the book in the picture and love how it is working out and lays so nicely too!

I also am making up a tiny little doily of my own.  Pictured here on my sweet potatoes, that I will be digging up very soon now that the cold has started in it is very pleasant for a change.

Have a great day in November and keep tatting or knitting of what every fun arts you do
smiles and kisses too!
