"easy" round tatting

Edited to add:
Yes, this is my tatting bag
purchased from the
String-a-Long Quilt Show boutique

The round motifs are from
Easy Tatting
using size 20 Lizbeth & size 20 DMC Cebelia

I've got to get some different colors
out : ) So pretty when finished

The butterflies are made with
size 10, size 20, size 30, and size 80 fibers.

Did I tell you my Mom took all my
practice motifs? She loved them when
she saw them on Easter & took
all of them home with her.

So, I made some more butterflies.
I found some purple size 80 DMC tatting
thread & will attempt some purple
butterflies next.

And, don't ask me what I'm going to do with them ...
I am giving them all away.
If you want one or two --- let me know!!!!

I've been reading The Aloha Quilt and Noah's Compass .... two entirely different kinds of books!!!

They're all VERY pretty Lelia! Your stitches are so neat and even! That's a cute bag also. Is it your tatting bag?

Looks like you've gotten the hang of those - so pretty (especially the purple ones)!! They would look darling on store bought baby items!! They'd find a willing home in Jackson NJ!!
