Happy St Patricks Day.
Today I bring you Saint Patricks Day Shamrock Earrings, these were designed by Rachel from The Piney Woods Tatter link here
Rachel designed these earrings back in 2004 and posted them again as a free pattern last week.
Rachel is a needle tatter, she makes some gorgeous items please follow the link and visit her blog its very interesting. As I am not a needle tatter, I sat down and work with the pattern into a shuttle tatting pattern, actually it was not difficult to do. Rachel has given me permission to put the shuttle pattern onto my pattern blog for you all. For those who do not do tatting, there are two ways of tatting either with a needle or a shuttle.
The top pair of earrings are in dark green Flora thread no 20, I find this thread hard to work and I don't use it very often.
This pair are in a lighter green, (although the picture looks more blue than green, it is green) Coats thread no 20, both have the same shade of green bead.
Its a lovely pattern and I can see me making quite a few of these earrings.
You will find the shuttle pattern on my pattern blog, there is a link in my sidebar for the pattern blog.
Thank you Rachel for a gorgeous pattern and allowing me to put the alternative tatting pattern on my pattern blog.
Have a lovely St. Patricks day.
Until we meet again Take Care
