Tatted Angels, Snowflakes and Christmas Trees

I am having one of those I can't be bothered days, the weather is windy it has been raining a bit, dull, and not very interesting. The sun has just popped out but there's plenty of grey clouds around.
Today I am showing my tatted Angel, this is Katie Johnson's 3-Dimensional Angel pattern, she glues the skirt onto the body, but I have played with the pattern and by doing two picots at the bottom of the body I can attach the rings and make the skirt so she strands up. I have shown her before but I thought I would show her again.
This snowflake and the next one are from Anna Magazine December 1991, I wish they had not stop printing the English version, I know I have said it before but when I go abroad I always look to see if I can get a copy of any current German ones as they still print it in German.

Both of these are on sale in my Esty store at the moment. they are easy to tat and don't take very long to do.

This is a new snowflake from the book Christmas Angels and other Tatting Patterns by Monica Hahn, I found this pattern easy and I love the way the rings flow, a couple of the rings look a little drunk but I have not ironed it yet.
This Christmas tree pattern is also from the same book, I also loved this pattern although I had a few unpicking at first its not difficult and once you get the hang of the pattern worked up quite easy, I also did it in the Christmas thread by Lizbeth called Christmas Delight, I really love this thread, well I think by now you all know that. I am going to do it again with some beads. I do like to test a pattern without beads before tatting them in.

All the above were tatted in Lizbeth thread no 20.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and the weather is a bit better where ever you are. I shall be watching the F1 later, I did not get up early for the race this morning so it will be the repeat, Japanese time is a bit too early for me, I hope Jensen Button our local boy will have a good race he was second on the row, I have not seen who won it that would spoil the race for me.

Until we meet again take care
