Tatting on the go ...

I prefer my small Art Bin 6971 AB; however,
there are times when I need a smaller
container for tatting items.

I purchased this Namaste Cali Buddy Case
from House of Stitches.  I used it for needlework supplies,
i.e., scissors and needles.

Recently, I loaded it up with tatting items.
I like the magnetic pieces to keep
scissors and crochet hooks in one place!

It is not large enough for a ball of fiber.
Is a nice size tho.

I noticed, during my last trip into LaPorte,
Longish and narrow.   Would probably
be perfect for crochet hooks.

A few butterflies tatted w/beads.
It is becoming easier for me to add the beads,
and they are kinda pretty!

Tatted Motifs

#6) Motif from Mini Tats by Patti Duff
tatted with #20 LizBeth fiber
Color 650

This motif was a challenge - keeping all the ds on the ring 
was difficult for me - not sure it is quite even. 
(practice - practice - practice)

#7) Motif from Mini Tats.
tatted with #20 LizBeth fiber
Color 661

Lots of practice keeping the picots even!!!
