A host of Angels 12/25 of Motif challenge


This is Katie Johnsons 3d Angels,   they look a bit drunk to me in the picture,  but I have not stiffen them yet.  I thought I would share these with you as I did these over the last few weeks while I was ill.  I have been trying some new bits and I am so pleased that while making these I mastered the single split chain,  something that up to now just would not work for me.  I must add its thanks Marilee and her wonderful way she explains and shows how to do it,  this old lady well I feel it at the moment, has been trying to master it for a long time so Thank you Marilee.  I now feel confident to use it more often, and not try to avoid it.  I used Lizbeth no 20 white thread.
I have been doing this variation to Katie's pattern for about four years and I really would like to share this with you, unfortunately I don't know how to get hold of Katie to ask if I could write done my variation for you.
In her pattern she glues the skirt onto the body,  in mine I add two picots and attach the skirt to the body. If anyone has her contact details I would like them, so can you please email me with them.  Thanking you in advance.
Until we meet again I hope you are keeping well and take care

  6. They look so nice looks like you gearing up for Christmas time. I am not familiar with that pattern but I hate to use glue on tatting so I think that was a brilliant thing to do!
