Another beautiful day, pity yesterday was so horrible, I suppose we did need the rain well the garden did. Today I have the holiday tatting I did on Kos, although their is a bit more than this but my hand has stropped me doing so much.
The above picture shows some snowflakes, as you might have read in a previous post the Greek lady thought they should be bigger and done in thicker thread. OK I have tatted these in No 20 Lizbeth thread. They are Wheel of nine rings from Christmas Angels and other tatting patterns by Monica Hahn, Snowflake Ornament from Easy tatting, Diane s Snowflake (which you will see again in another post) Anna magazine December 1991 no 32, and Katie Johnson's 3 dimensional angel which I made slightly bigger by adding an extra double stitch on the chains and rings. still not sure I like it a bit bigger.

I used one of the balls of Lizbeth no 20 I won from Rachel last year called Carousel, this is the first time I have used this thread. I did a spiral chain and using the corner pattern made a square end.
Update here is how far I have got with Renuleks mat, I did the last row in red by the pool and started the white just before we came home, In 30 degrees heat plus it was a bit hot to tat too long. I did talk about this in my last tatting post.
I hope you are having a nice weekend, until we meet again Take care
