Black and White hat

My mom wanted me to do white on black, as she feels it would be popular. This hat has an added feature. It's got little LED lights in the front of the cap. I want to make more, but they will be colors. I like colors.The braid is from Jane's bookmark. I started the butterfly from The Gentle Art of Tatting Things We Love by Patricia Ann Rizzo. I did her butterfly body, but struggled with the wings she'd designed. So I made my own wings.

Crinoline Lady

This is Crinoline Lady, from Pam Palmer's "Tatting Treats Two" The color is Lizbeth Boysenberry dk #644. I was able to get a nice gradient background from GRSties. That's a free site where you can obtain prints for backgrounds. Such nice folks. I still need to tat some flowers around on the ground to imply a garden. Anyone have any thoughts?
