I've been Tatting

I haven't posted for awhile, but I have been tatting.

The first pic is a cat I tatted for a special lady I met at the COF retreat in NH. Her name is Ely and she made me feel welcome even though I wasn't a quilter. She loves cats and recently lost one of hers. I hope she likes it.

The second pic is a dragon I'm going to attempt to put on a fabric post card. I don't think my sister is going to be happy until she gets me into working with fabric. I told her I would try making something small like the post cards. Now that I've tatted the dragon I'm at a loss as to what else to add to my post card. Any suggestions? I am painting on some fabric and if it turns out I will post a pic of that. I hope to finish that this weekend.

The third pic is a teapot. The color is a dark plum. I'm into tatting teapots right now since my sister got me Marth Ess new tatting book. I did tat one while at retreat but I gave it away before I got a pic. I guess I'll have to tat it again.

Love the kitty and the teapot. Isn't Martha Ess' book fabulous? I have really enjoyed that one. :0

OMG!!! I love the dragon. Why don`t you paint flames and a castle in the background of your postcard with the dragon on it?
BTW, watch for a small surprise in your mail box. :)

Tea pot is wonderful! I can see a mini quilt with the tea pot and old hankies (wink) I even have old hankies I could send to your family quilter! of your girls as the center..oooh that would be pretty too!

If the dragon is Japanease you can get lots of idea's if you google Japan robes, some of the wedding robes are fabulous. The castle idea is also neat.

Awwwe, Ely's kitty is just so cute. She will love it.
