I tatted mine in two colors. My tension was a bit on the tight side and it is not wanting to lay completely flat, but I love how it turned out. It’s a perfect thing to tat with Valentine’s Day approaching. Enjoy a heart and rose for yourself or share it with a loved one.

P.S. Sorry for the long absence. My computer is acting up (using hubby’s laptop). I took on new responsibilities at my newer job (hooray for teaching a few classes in addition to tutoring!). My husband sent me on a trip to see my sister and enjoy a weekend of fantastically geeky music (I even had the opportunity to perform on stage – singing and playing my guitar!). I think I am finally getting a handle on the new schedule – so you should hear back from me on a regular basis and in the future, I promise to give warning before disappearing for so long.  Happy Tatting!

Tatted Musical Notes – designed by Nancy Tracy and tatted by Natalie Rogers.

I was trying to figure out what to tat as the first challenge of 2014. I went back and forth between snowflakes, various animals, and all sorts of amazing designs by many different designers. Finally, I decided that music was the way to go. I love celebrating with music! Music plays a big role in both my memories and how I prepare for things to come. So I hope you enjoy a New Year full of music, laughter, and loved ones!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

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!

Weekly Challenge #24 – Pumpkin Patch Necklace

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.

Pattern: http://www.instructables.com/id/Pumpkin-Patch-Necklace/

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!
