I'm having lots of fun making pictures. These will eventually be incorporated somewhere. I do like to put them on my blog first. The heart is from Jan Stawasz's book Tatted Treasures. The butterflies are from Lindsay Rogers' Tatting Collage. And last but certainly not least is Jane Eborall's cute little puppy, which can sometimes be used for a sheep (sorry Jane). He is a cutie.
I had a hard time taking a picture of this. So it's not very clear. I tatted the swan from Mark Meyers patterns. On the left is a weeping tree. I was aiming for an English park. I found a nice shadow box frame. It opens from the front. That was a dilemma for a while, as the painting had 1/4 inch white edges and it showed. I finally managed to cut out a black mat so that solved my issue.
Just finished this baby blanket. It's to put on top of the baby while it's in a car seat. The straps hook over the car seat handle. I enjoyed making the blanket, but the puppy was too fiddly for my taste. Well it's for our first grandchild who's due in Aug. So, it's special. I got the kit and pattern from Mary Maxim, started and didn't like their pattern or the sport yarn. So I bought worsted yarn and used a different pattern. I kept the puppy.
