Improved flower baskets

 Thanks to some helpful suggestions I added some more flowers to my basket and also made another one. I also added some tatted ribbons. This was a fun and simple project.

Classic Heart

Lace-lovin'-Librarian posted this recently. It's Robin Perfetti's Classic Heart. Available on Etsy. It's very pretty and not too difficult to make. I had this one done in two evenings. I used Lizbeth size 20 Rainbow Splash.

Chinese dragon

I had fun making Martha Ess' Chinese dragon. I put a googley eye on him instead of the bead. It shows up better. My fellow looks like he's surprised about something. I had planned on putting him on a painting, but he has so much character that I might try something simpler for a background.

Two paintings

I've been playing in the paint a bit.
I tatted the unicorn and painted northern lights on the top. The canvas was black to start with.
The snow scene is from an art class I've been taking. My camera didn't help any as there are reflections on it. But it was all fun.

Two more window ornaments

I've made two more of these. Now all my 5 inch rings are used up, so I'm moving on. I think they might look nice hung in a window any time of year.

Blizzard Snowflake 2017

I just had to try Harolah's Blizzard Snowflake 2017. It's fun. I made two differences. I felt every SR in round one needed a vsp before the second half of the SR not just the first. Also on round 2 I made the last chain a split chain. That makes it land where it should be for the next round. Overall its a very unique snowflake.

Still making snowflakes

Yes I've still been making snowflakes. As long as I can't see out of one eye very well, I'm trying to keep it simple. I am getting some vision in the top half of my left eye. So, a few more weeks perhaps.
I do want to start crocheting as my son and daughter-in-law have announced they are 9 weeks along with our first grand child. 😁
The top left snowflake is from Romana Stelmach. Designed in 2014. The lower right is from Tatting for Today by Marion T. Leyds, published in 1980. My Christmas tree is still up, so I'm just keeping them for myself. I've made some more snowdrops also. My daughter asked for pink. I'll see if she will let me borrow it back to take a pic.
