Bits and pieces

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.

Completed Swan picture

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.

I just made this swan from Mark Meyers patterns. I added an eye.
