I want to send a warm welcome to
Sanne of Sannen vintilla - In My Attic who is having a giveaway on her lovely blog. Her followers have the chance to win some very cute minis, a fish in a bowl, a jar of irises, a cuddle cat and dog toy. Jaynie hopes that we have some good luck to win, she would really like a pet fish. If you spend some time looking at Sanne's older posts you will find many beautiful minis and lots of cute characters with interest stories.
this video for making the flower pendant. After I worked along with the video a few times I finally got this pendant. Then I went back to a pattern in the book, this time it only took me 3-4 tries to get the butterfly. I had a hard time getting the picot stitches (those little loops) even and keeping the stitches from twisting but I think that I now have the basics down fairly well. I think these look nice but if you want to see some very nice tatting, visit Amy at Crafter's Delights . She does shuttle tatting and has made some beautiful earrings that you really should see. I'm hoping that I can work out a pattern that I can shrink down using a smaller needle and finer thread to make some miniature doilies. Wish me luck, if it works out I may have doilies to share.
Thank you for visiting, Mary
