Happy Tatting and Belated Happy Thanksgiving! (motif 1)

Once again, I have been busy with other endeavors and unable to post. And, once again, I have actually been tatting. I am so proud that I am starting my third (can you believe it?) round of 25 motif challenge.

I have been working on a bonnet for my friend's baby, but it is nowhere near finished. I will try to post a picture when it is.

I also made two crosses from Lindsay Rogers' Tatting Collage, both in Aunt Lydia size 10 white. One was put on the outside of the baptism card and the other was blessed by the priest and given as a gift to the baby. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures...

My Nimble Thimble group had their bazaar so I tatted up another Small Star for them to sell. Actually, I tatted two of them. One is a repeat of the green and white I have done in the past and the other is in all white, size 10.  Of course, I have no pictures to share. Drat! I plan on making more of them to give to family and friends for Christmas.  They did sell pretty quickly though.

Looking at my daughter in her cute little dress on Thanksgiving, I decided to make some hair pins to match in orange and brown, size 10. The large flower is from Lindsay Rogers' Tatting Collage, the smaller cupped center is something I came up with accidentally one day and really like.  She loved them and we even made it back home with one of them! (The other went AWOL in her cousin's room during preparations for a fashion show.)

I went on Amazon today and picked out some tatting books. My husband had been wondering what to get me for Christmas. I told him about my wishlist on Amazon and he told me later I can be expecting a couple of shipments in the next few days! The fact that he would buy these for me means so much to me. It means he understands that it is a big deal for me, not just a way for me to waste time. I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!
