Its Snowing snowflakes


Hi,

Since christmas I have been tatting a few snowflakes,  these are new patterns that were published before christmas and I was tatting some orders that I never had time to try these out.

I have grown very fond of this snowflake its called Iwona  by Ewa Wasylliszyn,    I used white lizbeth thread no 20  for both of these and used blue and gold seed beads,  


This is another Iwona this time I used ice blue with blue beads,   the blus beads reminded me of the blur light when we did the trip to Norway,  they have 24 hours of darkness during the winter,  its not what we would call total darkness they have what they call a blue light which these blue beads represent and the ice blue thread is the reflection of the blue light in the snow.

 This is snowflake is a new snowflake designed by Wanda called Victor snowflake,   its a lovely pattern and I will be doing more but for now I am tatting something else before starting on two projects which I have wanted to tat for a while.   





I really enjoyed tatting these snowflakes,  there will be more I have no doubt about that.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend,  today we have sunshine but its is very cold with frosts in the morning at least its not raining

 Hi,

This is our first challenge of the year,     lets hope covid just goes away,  no matter what happen we have kept crafting last year and hopefully will continue throughout this year.    This fortnight the host is Pamela

For my card I went for a winter scene from the CD  a winter walk in the countryside by Creative crafting,  for the image,  I did add an extre layer with the circle  on the card,    The tartan card is printed with tartan which I brought in the works. and works well with the image.

I hope you will visit the CD Sunday Plus Challenge site, and remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD, USB or digital material no matter how small and let us know where and what you used the material from,   and that it is a card or a project.    Here is a link to CD Sunday Plus Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.

Christmas tatting


 Hi,

This Christmas all my tatting has been on the dark side,  I was asked for two purple ice drops as above,  she decided on two different threads both Lizbeth no 20 in Purple twist and Iris Fusion.


Then she asked for two ring donuts again in purple,  but larger for this one I used Purple Splendor,  thus is my own pattern and came out at just over 3 inches . 


The second one well it curled up,  I can only think that because I was rushing it i tatted it too tight,  after cutting off two rounds I changed the last round a bit and yes it laid flat  for this one I used Iris Fusion.



Having finished with purple (not my favourite colour) I went on to red for my sister in law,  she likes either all white or all red,  this is the third day of December from the book 24 snowflakes by Lene Bjorn.  Christmas red thread by Lizbeth no 20.  Yes I made a mistake there are seven arms not six but I like it and it’s just a little bigger,  as she has a big real tree at Christmas it will look fine.

Now I am going to tat some white snowflakes,  before stating a large tatting project.

Hope you are having a lovely Christmas and stay safe and well

Art Deco Christmas


 Hi,

I have not posted for a couple of weeks,  partly because I had very little to post and time keeps running out on me.

Today I have the last few cards to show you,  the one above is a card I made for my sister in law,  from the CD Art Deco elegance Debbi Moore.  This CD is full of gorgeous images,  at first my husband did not think it was very Christmassy,   But by the time I had finished ,  he liked it, perhaps because she had a green dress?



This is the card I made for my husband,  I used the latest Debbi Moore magazine,   I liked this image so much I cut it out of the magazine free papers to make this card,  it’s not something I do cutting out of the free papers,  I hope to buy the CD that has this image on.  He was pleased and liked the card.


My last card was a download from the latest Debbi Moore magazine for our great  niece she will be three months just after Christmas. 


I hope she likes it,  in years to come.

This is our last challenge of the year,  I hope you have enjoyed the inspiration as a team we have brought to the challenges,, as usual its anything goes, as long as its from a CD, USB, or ditigal material.  The host for this fortnight is Carol

For my card I used a download from the Tattered lace magazine no 44 for the image and backing paper, The spray of flowers was matted onto a gold miri card from Hunkydory,  with  a white piece of textured card,  and  two velum butterflies from a Debbi Moore  dies free gift from her magazine no 53 then finished off with peel offs.
