Pink Sorbet Large Suncatcher

I have continued working on this large suncatcher, 
but I am realizing that for me designing takes lots 
of time and thinking, some drawing, and some cutting.
I love this round!!!  It's not what I was originally 
thinking, but it's so "cute".  :)
 Here's a close-up.  :)
Having to wait till next week to continue due to 
a granddaughter invasion, and preparation for it.
Have a fabulous tatting time!!!  :)

Next Christmas Secret in progress.

Here's the start. 
I am using Yarnplayer's new HDT Raspberry Sorbet.
And the beads with the pink are heavy glass, and 
the clear beads are shaped like roses and seem to be 
glass.  I am now working on what's next in the tatting 
of the next round.
 Here's a close-up.
Happy tatting and have a wonderful weekend!!!  :)

Christmas Secret Large Tatted Suncatcher!

Well, lots of trials and errors in trying to design
the outer round to join to the ring,  but it's done!
Here is the scrap pile.
 Here is the pile of drawings of the designs, and 
the scraps and needed items.
 And here it is blocked.
 Here it is in a window.
 The glow from the beads is awesome!!!
 A "brighter" view.
 Hanging on a cream colored wall to show the flower
at the top of the hanger.  :)
Now it gets wrapped for Christmas!!!
It's not as tight as I would prefer it, but I 
am still happy with it!!  :)

Finally a chance to continue working

At least till 3am while hubby is out on a temp 
This is taking a long time and I haven't had time 
to work on it while he has been here every day.
I am hoping to make more progress yet tonight, 
but that will depend on if my concentration and 
eyes hold out that long.
Again, this is the Mystery Doily by Patty Dowden 
pattern here:
Have a wonderful night!!  :)
