yellow is size 80 and orange colors are 40
little busy with lawn work and
birthdays. and many other things that are keeping me from tatting and blogging as much.
hopefully will have more to show soon.

Enjoy you tatting experiences today :)

Dandelion lace Doily Completed

This asparagus is great for displaying this doily cause it is just as light and airy.
Little tip about the background garden, an elderly lady taught me about silk flowers,  I have struggled with this weed tree thing and trimmed it back as well as I could, then I bought some silk flowers and stuck them on there till I figure out how to remove the this thing that appears to have roots to China.
So far the silk hasn't faded.

This pretty table sits outside and does look good on it so I may place the table back inside, dare I leave the doily out side? :)
I really enjoyed this doily and can see me making another one
It is weird cause I messed up the measurements on the length of the bare threads but it turned out nice and worked out any way I am still trying to figure out how it worked with out ruffling it up.
have a great week squeezing in your tatting with all those other things to be done :)

Ice Drop Occhi, with folded rings to make a Necklace

Previously bought a string of the peacock coin beads, and decided to make a necklace!

"Folded Rings" are a big help when altering this for some frilly tatting work, to place around the neck, Do you see them?  :) 

I am almost half way round but in no hurry....

Been working with the garden and lawn in this beautiful weather at home it is like a vacation to sit on front porch and tat
Have a wonderful week!
