The cover page heart of "Tat's Amore"
By Martha Ess.
Yes starts with split rings🤔

I am out of order but this is a mistake that I just whipped stitched correct cause I for got a connect a picot😊

I made a collar once and filled it in with tatting and this is the second time I've done a fill in tatting.  So far its works.

First bundle of flowers good so far. And below is the Iris

More to come this project you have to walk away and come back to it maybe because I.                      am using size 80 thread.
Hope this year brings you courage to tat those favorite pattern you always wanted to           make❤🎉❤ Hugs from Carollyn!

After Christmas practicing with new book

Hope your all well and happy, and enjoying your holidays.  I now am trying hanging clunies with my new book I received from Joanne Wagner,tatting exchange from Tatting Corner 
I  have wanted to try this for so long and love working on this.

This is the book that I referred to but that are other directions floating around out there I just got courage with her great explanation.  

I did get 2 more button snowflakes done
And in background is the initials made by ruth Perry aka Rozella Linden.

Tatted Lace Snowflake Design Changed Drastically

It's more of an Easter Basket!
Yes it was supposed to be a snowflake!
The rings were fine the chains were not long enough.  But Then I realize the turning up on the edges where just fine, and to "go with it" it wants to be a basket :)

So I started another one, and remembered to leave ends long so I can finger tat to next round!

Finger tatting to next round.

Then a split ring hiding the ends and snip off!
Now that's what I was going for :)
have a great day!
