Hiya again,

Just a few pictures to show you all today. First I will show you my Janey,O Janey ornament. This is her new one. I made mine out of size 40 Lizbeth thread and the color numbers are :silver 605 and Wedgewood Blue dk. 656. This was a nice restful and fun pattern to do. Thank you Janey. If you would like to have this pattern to tat or if you would love to see her other patterns ...go here

Her patterns are great. I have made alot of them over the years.


In past week I have been playing with leaves. I took this picture of Mark Myers Leaf that he designed when I saw him in 2005 at the Palmetto Tatting event. There is no pattern for this leaf but I do like it...so decided this week to play and see if I could copy it. In the first leaf I used some hand dyed thread that I got from Palmettos last year. It was done by Hope Bates I think. The colorway was called Sunflower. I also mixed in some green and oranges from the Lizbeth thread from Handy Hands. The last leaf I made using King Tut quilting threads. It is the one with the pink in the center of the leaf. Some leaves actually have pink on them. Now I know there are many different types of Maple Trees. I have Royal Red Maples in my yard and some I guess they are just regular Maple Trees. I went out side and gathered a bunch of them and sandwich the leaves between two layers of contact paper. I am using them for the Fall look around my house...but I noticed that the lobes of the leaves were not really as deep as the one Mark designed so I made my more compacted with no lobes.
Anyhow...I was just playing and having fun.








































Wella.....enjoy the pictures. Now I am going back to work on my Nina necklace that I started when I took her class at the Palmetto's event this past September.

Beautiful leaves :-)
Thanks for the comment on my LHN finish on the LHN ornament SAL blog. The design 'Holly and Berries' wasn't published in a magazine, you can buy it from any needlework shop/online store as it is still in print. HTH
