Christmas Tatted Earrings

Hi,
Today I am bring you my Christmas Tatted Earrings, this is the first pair of earring I have ever made. I was asked for a pair of earrings by my sister in law Sheila, we call each other sister in law but I suppose we are not. Sheila was Vernon's previous wife sister, who died before I meet Vernon. At our wedding Sheila said to me "I have never had a sister in law before", well neither had I, but now I have two Sheila and Dee Vernon's sister.

This is the pattern which I designed at 3am one morning when I could not sleep and was waiting for the pain killers to kick in, actually that night they did not work.

I used Lisbeth Christmas delight thread no 20 which I used for the butterfly, angel and lady I posted a few weeks ago, and added beads on each picot. I have called the pattern Sheilas Earrings
I hope you are snowed in and are able to keep warm, we still have snow here and had another load on Wednesday night. Its bitterly cold and although we have some sunshine today its not got any warmer.
Thank you for visiting my blog and look forward to seeing you again in blog land. In the meantime take care and warm
Hugs
Margaret
