Snow, snow, and snow...what is a girl to do?

Ah yes, zipper pulls using Yarnplayer's HDT fiber and free pattern by Grace Tan.  Yummy fiber - yummy color!

Yarnplayer's HDT fiber and free pattern from
The Spool Cotton Co. c.1936

My onion rings are kinda wobbly.  more practice needed.   

Tatting WIP - using Yarnplayer's HDT - which I find looks pretty good when I have to untat & retat - open closed rings to fix an error -- and the colors!!!!  beautiful colors.
The Spool Cotton Co    c.1936

I enjoy getting the Tatting Bella On Line newsletter via e-mail.   Georgia Seitz, Editor, shares fabulous articles.    Recently, she began sharing diagrams + patterns of tatting motifs, edges, from this 1936 publication.   While the black-n-white photos from the book are good - I find it so much easier to have a pattern to follow and diagram.    Link to the newsletter archives - HERE.

This is TIAS - day 11 (day 12 available today):

Thank you Jane for the funness!!!  Such an interesting motif.     Looked forward to all the pattern days and learned how to add buttons into my tatting.

I think we have 2 pair of cardinals.   The females are around - tho stay hidden!

Beautiful photographs of the birds !!!
Nice thread colours & tatting :-)
A craftsperson does need as many scissors as can be possible, right :-))

Snow and tatting do seem to go together well! You have a lovely collection of scissors... one for each project!

Your photos are all beautiful, especially of the cardinals.
It's amazing how many colors you're tatting with!
