I had my husband assist me in taking these picture of the "Beauty In the Eyes of a Tatter" that I did years ago with the Online Tatting Class. This is one of my favorite things I own. It is so special to me for the motifs in the center piece were tattings that people sent to me and I put together creating this centerpiece. There is more about this center piece on my website. Just go there and click on Centerpiece and you can see more pictures of it and how I went about putting it together. Just click on my website in the column on the left here on my blog.
I also designed a Celtic themed fan using the Mignonette Stitch for the ground to hold all my elements together in my design. I designed this fan for a fan competion but alas...the time to enter my fan had expired without me knowing it. But at least I have this fan that I made and designed myself. Including my fan sticks. Now it sits open on top of some dishes in my china cabinet for display and also a place where I can have my fan open.
The discussion for the "Online Tatting Class" hosted by our very own AK Tatter Georgia Seitz and the subject tonight will be the mignonette stitch. Hopefully I will remember to come to class and be with you all tonight. See you there.

LOVE them! That fan is magnificent! And the table topper is gorgeous. You are so talented, WOW! I so want to try to tat a fan one day. Oooh, and I just love the mignonette stitch, too. If I didn't have to work, I'd drop into the chat tonight.

oh, I love the fan. What did you make the sticks from? I really like the collage form of tatting. Someday, Hopefully, I will do that myself with all the bits I have!

Hi Sherry, Wow, Your fan is Magnificant! That is truely an awesome piece. I love the Chinese Dragon. That's too bad you missed out on the competition.

I remember the large center piece you did, it is so Awesome!! I sent you a tatted sunflower with brown beads in the center, a green snake and a ladybug.

It must have taken you forever to put that all together.

Thanks for the post, I enjoyed seeing both of these excellent designs.
