Motif # 6

My Motif # 6 is from Judi Banashek's book "Advanced Tatting Patterns". I used white Lizbeth Size 20 thread. Judi is the founder of our Oklahoma Shuttle Bugs tatting group. She is a wonderful teacher and I learned so much from her. A few years ago she moved to Waxahachie, TX to be close to her daughters. Good news! Terry McGuffin gave me permission to post her pattern for the Windmill Snowflake. As soon as I locate it I'll try to figure out a way to post it here.

Motif # 5

Ta, da, here is Motif # 5. It is the windmill snowflake by Terry McGuffin from the tatted round robin website which was hosted by Maus aka Etha Schuette. You can still access most of the website through the wayback machine. I think I used DMC Cebelia Size 20 thread. It was one of those UFO's that finally got finished which means I have two of my shuttle back. Yeah!

Annja's Earrings

Today is my colleague and walking buddy Annja's birthday. Last weekend I beaded these netted earrings. Then I brick stitched around the hoop and picked up the tip of the netted pieces in one round. I was going for a Native American flair because Annja is proud of her Cherokee heritage. She loved them.

Still tatting and beading

Hi everyone! I have been working two people's jobs for 2 1/2 months until last week. I have been so exhausted but still try to tat and bead at least on the weekends. I did very well in both the county and state fairs. It was so much fun to participate. As soon as I get a chance to scan I will show you some pictures of what I have been up to.
