Sun catchers

I've been playing with some more sun catchers. The very top one is actually Lizbeth blue ice, but it doesn't show up on the picture.
I've also found that some of the centers from Jan Stawasz books make nice sun catchers as well.
I'm all out of #20 white crochet cotton. I went to lots of stores but no one had #20. I finally sent for some on Amazon. It's Aunt Lydia's and if you by $35.00 worth the shipping is free. They were on for $3.29 Cdn a ball.

Tree Top Ornament

Haven't done alot lately. I've just gotten over a retina surgery. I'm happy to report it's all better. I am very grateful for that. Last Nov I had a detached retina on my left eye repaired. The recovery took 3 months. This year I had the same surgery on my right eye done. The recovery on it has been only 3 weeks. I am  extremely grateful for such a fast recovery.
This Tree topper is from the book Tatting for Today, written by DMC in 1980. I only have 5 1/4 inch rings so I added a row to it and used size 20 thread rather than the required 10. I hope to make some more. My pupil is still dilated so it lets in more light than it should. But I'm seeing good enough to tat. And that's all that matters. Right? 😃

A Galaxy

I've tatted a galaxy of stars. This is from Monica Hahn's book Christmas Angles and Other Tatting Patterns.

Christmas Stars

These are my latest endeavors for Christmas. They are from "Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns." by Monica Hahn. They are very fun to make and not complicated. I've put gold beads along the outer perimeter.

Snowflakes for 2018

Here are four snowflakes that I've gotten done so far. The top two and bottom right are from Harolah the Shade Tree Designer. They are for a friend who plans to send them to Australia as part of her Christmas present to her friends. I put sparkle on them. But, unfortunately the sparkles don't show up in the picture.

This is my latest endeavor. I had done a fall market at our Legion. It must have been a cold day outside because I had a lot of interest in my hats. I sold the only adult one in this style so decided to try to make more before the Nov. Christmas market.

Bracelet by Harolah

I've just finished making the Simplicity bracelet designed by Harolah Cheser. I made it a little too long but maybe I'll find someone with big wrists. 🌝
