Lady and a Bird

I'm trying to get a couple of things tatted quickly. I'm attending a retreat with my sister next week and they expect me to have some things to show. The problem is I've given everything away. I just finished the little bird this morning. This is a design from Inga Madsen tatted in size 80. This was also the first time that there wasn't a written pattern but had to be tatted from a diagram I've ever done. I think I did ok. The crinoline lady is a Pam Palmer pattern tatted in size 20. I love these ladies. I hope I can find more patterns for these. I'm not confident enough yet to create my own.

Easter Bunnies

The first pic is a pattern by Mark Myers and I tatted it in the color Peace since that's what I had on my shuttle at the time. I think he will be cute attached to one of my handmade cards.

The next pic is something we painted on rusty tin in acrylics. The second pic is the backside.

I just got three new books and four new threads so I'm anxious to try something new. There are so many things I want to make but there's so little time. I'll have plenty to do once I'm able to retire.
