These are the tatting pieces I shared earlier today:
This is my pattern. So bright and colorful! I added some beads. The beads were gifts (to me) from Lace-Lovin' Librarian and GF Beth. I used HH Lizbeth size 20 Col 139, Col 131, + Col 117; and Flora 20, Col 13. Free pattern, Link in side bar - HERE.
Carol's Butterfly Pattern - Lizbeth size 20, Col. 139
The lovely hearts are based on Grace Tan's pattern - Small Trefoil Heart. I added beads. I used HH Lizbeth Size 20, Col. 139. Grace blogs at Grace Tats. Link to free pattern - HERE.
The three yellow/creme butterfly are A Summer's Memory - Four Butterfly Patterns from Mary Maynard, Link HERE. I was not able to get butterfly #3 tatted - all was a mess!!! These were patterns from the On-Line weekly tatting class. Link here. Check out the class homework blog - link HERE. May try these patterns again some day. I used Flora 20, Color 13. Beads from GF Beth and Diane who blogs as Lace-Lovin' Librarian.
I read about the Wednesday Challenge posted on the Shuttlebirds blog. I like their challenges + do attempt from time-to-time. The post is HERE. Or FaceBook page link. I pulled out the shuttles and tatted up some pieces to give away. I met GB Beth and she had FIRST choice. We went into her church and gave away all but 3 pieces to the Secretary, Manager, and the group of women who were sewing. Enjoyed hearing about their tatting [needle tatting] and hearing about relatives who tatted. We had lunch and I gave the last three away to the Cashier, helper, and cook! All Gone ; )
