'Intatters' Spring Tatting Exchange

 Hi,


At least I can say today is a better day weather wise and the sun is shining at the moment,  long may it last.   My washing is out on the line so hopefully it might dry.  Although it is very cold for the time of year and a frost is forecasted for tonight,   I have a few plants I want to put out before we go on holiday,  so I hope it warms up in the next week.
Today as promised I am showing these wonderful earrings and pendant that was sent to me by Jarmila from Prague (her tatting name Frakvia)
I was hoping that the exchange item I have sent to Portugal would have arrived and I could have included both items,  but so far I have waited and waited and no word has come from her,  so I am showing what I received and when I hear from her I will post the item on here for you to see.

These beautiful earrings and Pendant are in gold thread,   gold Czech thread called Zlatka,   in the Czech language gold is called Zlata.


The pictures do not do them justice,   they are totally Wow as my Grand daughter Bethany said when she saw them,   They have three tiny blue beads in the middle,  they are a Celtic design which Jarmila designed herself.  My husband said they look like fine gold chain and not tatting,  but they are tatted in the most finest gold thread possible.


Jamila has very kindly sent me a copy of her pattern,  thank you and all I can say is they are the most beautiful items I have ever received.   They have cheered me on a very difficult time that my husband and I are facing,   as many of you know Vernon retired last November,  since then we have had so much to deal with including my Mother going into a nursing home,  she still has not stood up or walked.  Now we face another challenge,   I will tell you more when we know what treatment he has decide to have until then we are going on holiday, the hospital says we can go so we are going,   hes not in any pain,  neither is he on any medication,  and he feels fine.   


Until we meet again in blog land,   take care and have a lovely weekend.
Hugs
Margaret
