That is it. There are no more large pendants. I have listed this green one and am going to now finish the hanky border, which seems suddenly easy compared to the marathon tatting required to finish the two Tibetan pendants.
It is takes a lot of patience and good eyesight
to tat around a big, solid piece of metal!
Karey Solomon designed this. I love the shape.
It is one of the best small, heart patterns I have seen.
It came about because I wanted to use some Delica beads that I really like, but have never used before and so I grabbed some leftover white - I think it is Lizbeth#40 and tatted this last night. Too bad the colour of the beads is way off in this pic.
The tatting is wonky; I tatted way too fast and too late - as usual, so I will take more care and tat it again as it pleases me very much.
Lastly, I received my latest Blog-To Print book.
Gian cracks me up.
No sooner had I laid the books on the floor in order to photograph them, when Monsieur headed over to investigate. Look where he headed first - right to that big, blue eye on the cover of the middle book. Not stupid, this cat!
These books cover my entire blogging career since April 2009. I am so glad I decided to chronicle my progress, as it is interesting to me to see my progress chronologically.
I have tatted SO MUCH! It astounds me when I sit and look at the books, which is not often, but wonderful when I do. It forces me to actually see what I have accomplished.
Also, by printing the books at regular intervals, at about 110-130 pages each, the cost is not prohibitive. Again - I cannot believe what I have actually tatted in three and a half years! Get a life, Fox!
