This is what I made today. A necklace for my very pretty Girlie Girl Kiara Anna Anna. Kiara's Mom brought over a cheap plastic beads craft kit to make little girl jewelry. I made a necklace out of the beads spelling out her full name. It is tatted using the "Beady Bracelet" and "Wrap Bracelet" techniques that Erin Holloway and I taught back in early September. It was hard to get a good picture so I am sharing two pictures I took. Kiara Anna...Granny loves you and this necklace I made for you my little Girlie Girl.

I was so inspired with all the beautiful tatting I saw a Palmetto's Tat Days that I tatted this doily up after I got home. The pattern came from an old "Star" pattern booklet and the pattern was just called...wait for it...wait for it..."Tatted Doily. I have renamed my finished doily "Tatted Colorway". I tried to put a lot of color in the doily. I like it.

there that can design creatures like this Mermaid which I am going to name Ariel. Kinda catchy for a name huh?? I had loads of fun making her. I got the pattern from Ring Of Tatter's 2005 book. Loved playing with the color for her. The only thing I did different is I added gold beads to the top of her head so she would look like she was wearing a crown. Since I had so much fun with making her I have to make another ne for myself since this little mermaid will go to a new tatter's home soon. She was designed by Jane Eborall of he UK. Love you Janey O Janie.

I just finished painting these large Square Santa Claus bobbins. These are the last I am painting for Christmas which has come and gone. In this picture the bobbins are in the same order but turned four times so you can see each side. All the Santa Clauses (since I hand painted them) each have their very own personalities. They are all for sale. If anyone one is interested in buying any please send me a message. When the three are gone they are gone.
