I’m currently on a snowflake kick for my tree and this one is a lot of fun! However, I’ve miscalculated the amount of time it takes me to add beads to a picot before a join. Thus, you get to enjoy an in-progress shot. I will upload my completed snowflake when it is finished and I look forward to seeing yours!

Shuttlebirds Fall Lace Day – Pearl Tatting

As Davina said, Saturday was Fall Lace Day for the Shuttlebirds Guild. I was very grateful that I was able to make the second half of the day. I missed Patty’s hairpin lace snowflake, but she saved me a copy of the pattern – so I will be trying my hand at it later this month.

I was able to enjoy the basics of pearl tatting with Jan. I ended up with a bead pattern that I really like. Next time I will just make sure I pre-string some extra beads on my shuttles. Right now it is the perfect length for a necklace for my little sister.

This week’s pattern was also created by Nicole (Penolopy Bulnick). It is a fantastic necklace that will go well with her pumpkin earrings. Her instructable is written step by step for needle tatters. Shuttle tatters should be able to easily follow her directions too. Feel free to ask me questions if you run into them as I used my shuttles on this one.

Pumpkins for Pumpkin Patch Necklace... I've still got some work to do before I finish it. I'll be wearing it before the end of the week.

I’ve been having fun making pumpkins. No completed necklace pictures for you yet. My pumpkins are still growing. I’ll post pictures of my completed necklace when I finish it. So here is your chance to complete a challenge before me! I’d love to see your Pumpkin Patch Necklace!

Weekly Challenge #23 – Pumpkin Earrings

This week’s pattern was created by Nicole (Penolopy Bulnick). It is a delightful pair of pumpkin earrings. Her instructable is written step by step for needle tatters. Shuttle tatters should be able to easily follow her short hand notation for this pattern. Feel free to ask me questions if you run into them as I used my shuttles on this one.

Pattern: http://www.instructables.com/id/Tatted-Pumpkin-Earrings/

Pumpkin Earrings designed by Nicole (a.k.a. Penolopy Bulnick) and tatted by Natalie Rogers. *tail tucking, earring wire, and matching pumpkin to come after my cold goes away and I can focus again.

It’s a fun pattern for fall, harvest, and Halloween. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I hope you will forgive the fact that I don’t have a completed pair yet. Since Thursday I’ve driven to Colorado and back, come down with horrible sinus issues/cold, and actually only arrived home this morning (um… guess it will actually be yesterday when this posts). I’m pretty tired, but I wanted to make sure you got this awesome challenge. These pumpkins are adorable and I look forward to seeing yours!

Weekly Challenge #22 – Meandering Path

This week’s pattern was created by Jeanne Lugert. It is a very beautiful pattern. I really love the way it flows from one part to the next. I can easily picture it as a lovely path through a wonderfully laid out garden. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Pattern: http://ladytats.blogspot.com/p/patterns.html (both written and in diagram form)

Meandering Path - designed by Jeanne Lugert - tatted by Natalie Rogers in Lizbeth thread Niagara Falls (size 40) and Purple Dark (size 20).

Meandering Path – designed by Jeanne Lugert – tatted by Natalie Rogers in Lizbeth thread Niagara Falls (size 40) and Purple Dark (size 20).

I wanted to see what this pattern would look like in two colors. I really liked the way it turned out. However, when I do it again, I will make sure that the two colors are in the same thread size. That’s what I get for starting this pattern after 9 pm with sleepy eyes. Still, a very wonderful pattern!
