Yeup, you read right. This is the first Snowflake of the year...lol Since I am doing the Farmers Market and my tatting is selling quite well I've started making Christmas ornaments. Not only will I be doing the Market each Saturday until mid December, I have a Craft Show coming up on the first Saturday in December. I'm still planning on doing this show as I have done it now for about 17 years. So that means really getting my b*** in gear...lol
Anyways, here is the snowflake. I have tatted this with a single strand of DMC Light Effects Embroidery Floss - White and a size 8 tatting needle.
This next one is a Tatted Christmas Tree that can be found on BeStitched. This was tatted with size 80 thread and done with the shuttle. I filled this shuttle (a Clover) with the thread and I want to see how many of these trees I can get with one shuttle full. So far I have 2 done...I keep getting side tracked...lol
THIS and see how well it works.
- I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.
