Another day with snow on the ground, its still freezing cold, and no sign of a let up with the weather.
Today I bring you a tatted Horseshoe which I made for one of the girls in the office who got married last Saturday. I do hope she likes it.
I made the box from white card and finished off with silver peel offs and red ribbon.
This picture shows a close up of the box.
This picture shows you the horseshoe on the base of the box, I used card that looked like leather.
This picture show you a close up of the horseshoe, using a pattern from The pattern Collection book by Mary Konior, she used this pattern for a cross, I liked it so much that I adapted it to make the horseshoe. I added two butterflies in a thread which I brought in Rhodes on holiday a couple of years ago, of red and silver. As I don't know when I can get some more of this thread I tend to only use it on special projects.
This is the first Horseshoe I have made, I have been thinking of making a few to put on my craft table, I have also found another pretty pattern which I have tried. I am always trying to find something different to put on my table and as weddings happen all year round they might useful on the table. In these days when money is short for everyone finding new ideas that won't cost the earth to tempt customers is getting harder.
I have been working on two projects in the last couple of days, a pair of tatted earrings and the tatted bell which I started in Turkey.
Update I have had two appointments from the hospital for early in the new year, so hopefully when these are done I might get something done and the pain could be a thing of the past. I can only hope!
I have another post before Christmas hopefully of the family Christmas cards I have made in parchment, yes its time I did some parchment, I am still learning but these cards have given me the opportunity to learn some more grid work, plus Vernon's card.
I hope you have a very Happy Christmas and a very very Happy New Year. until we you pass this way again please take care in this bad weather.
