Can You Say COLOR???!!
In the first picture is a doily that I just finished. The doily isn't very big. I tatted it using size 70/80 tatting thread. The original pictures I have seen of this doily are from a book Edited by Georgia Seitz called Tatting Online. It is a great book! Alot of neat patterns in it. Anyhoooo....The pictures of this doily are MonoTone. Just one single color but when I see a doily that screams flowers well then it also screams color to me. So I made this doily using alot of color. The pattern is by Mark Myers and is on page 4 and 5 of said book. I think it is prettier than the pictures that I took show. But now as you can see it just SCREAMS COLOR don't you think?
I sometimes purposely will make a doily is small thread for when I don't plan on using the doily as a doily per se' but tatted up because I really like the pattern. It is small enough to put it in my Scooby Doo Fun Book.

In the next picture is another ornament that I made. This one is Michelle and was done in colors that she picked out. The next one has to be done in Dallas Cowboy Football colors which I think is blue and gray. This ornament will be for a Dallas fan Ryan my youngest son.

Enjoy the pictures...don't know when I will be posting again.

Dear Sherry,
You have such a great talent for combining colors. The doily is so wonderful at the eye. I will ask you help also for some color combinations!
