I decided to take a break from tatting a flock of birds and tatted this pattern from"Tea is for Tatting" by Martha Ess. I love her patterns. This one was definitely a challenge for me. This is not a pattern you just whip out. I'm such a slow tatter I thought I would never get this finished. I love how it turned out and now I will have to figure out what I'm going to do with it now. Disregard the date on the photo I just finished this project this weekend and didn't notice the date on my camera when I took this photo.
I finished a Halloween centerpiece this past week....well almost. I still need to seal it and I'm thinking about adding some more bling to it but for the most part it's finished. The orange dots are glitter but don't show up real well in the photos. This was painted on a paper mache surface with acrylic paints. I'm still working on my stocking but I don't have much to show for now. Maybe next week.
What I've been working on is this crazy quilted stocking. I got it pieced last weekend and finished a minor seam treatment so far. This is a project from my embroidery class I'm taking. The simple stitch in gold is called Ermine Stitch. I hope to get a seam treatment done each week. You know Christmas is just around the corner.
