WAY to much fun....

I caught a silly "kids back to school cold" but did I let that stop me from playing??? Of course not! So in between the sneazing and sniffles I made THESE!!

More "Sweetheart Earrings" from Yarnplayer's book "Boutique Tatting, which I like better with the dark purple bead BTW:) I think the Josephine chain is getting better with the practice and they are fun to do!
I also made the first Motif  called "Melati" from Jon's Book "Tatting With Rings"
I really should not tat with a fever, because I messed up and had four beads in a picot and then had to make one with two just to keep it even. :(
Even still I don't think it is half bad for a first time tatting around a ring, since I have never done that before.
So for now it is off to take a nap after a soak in the tub..... come when ever I "feel" good I NEVER get the time to do that kind of thing? The world may never know....


  1. I think I like the darker bead. These all look great! Hope you get over your cold quickly! I feel one coming on, too.

  2. Hi Jeannette! Your earrings and pendant are lovely! I bought some of this thread too and can't wait to tat with it.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Thank you Yarnplayer! I like it better too! I am now making your "One Shuttle Glamour" Earrings. :) I hope you feel better too!

    Thank you Carol! I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the motif but what a awesome idea!!! That would be pretty!:)
    I really like the LizBeth thread, it doesn't seem to get all "twisty" like some I have tried.

  4. You did a wonderful job on the ring. I haven't tried encapsulating around a plastic ring yet, yours looks lovely.

  5. Very pretty! The thread is such a nice color. Love the beads, too! I love Yarnplayer's earring patterns! I did them in pink once!

  8. Very nice tatting, ;) I hope you'll get over your cold soon.
