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.

No I am not starting a project. This is what happens when I can't find what I did wrong. This is a result of retrolacing. I could not find where I made my mistake so I had to undo it all. So since I don't want to waste the thread they are hanging on a hapkin holder that one of my children made in school. The masking tape with the guilty child's name has come off so I don't know which chicklet made it...but it works wonderful to hand my bobbins on and make them behave before they get to work again on another piece of lace.
Tomorrow there is no school because it is Martin Luthur King's Day...so all of the chicklets will be with me. I think I might either work on either my Bucks Point Edging or my Shamrock Torchon edging. ...I am thinking the torchon one right now.

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.
