|When I used Margaret's Ice drop pattern, I was placing face beads inside.... I got an idea. It's not spring but this could be a late summer butterfly so far got to tat wings.|
|Little longer and green and maybe a book worm!|
|My grandchildren collect pine needles and save them for me wanting me to make them a basket they get to pick the tatting thread and we start soaking the needles.|
|I have made beautiful tatting shuttles in the past using filigree findings purchase on line but this time the brass was way to thin to make an actual shuttle and works perfect for the bottom of a beautiful basket :)|
|I started may grandsons and he wanted blue on the bottom and green tatting thread.|
they were out of school for a week and came to visit and we had a wonderful time Museums and Zoo and fun outside, but didn't finish the baskets.
Then everything changed and my granddaughter fell from a tree and it wasn't very big just landed wrong
it lacerated her Kidney and Spleen and broke her wrist she almost needed surgery and they were on standby.
|Was a crazy unexpected time and several days in Hospital.|
She is home now and received her basket that I finally finished and put in the mail and she loved it.
