Mistake ..

I saw an edging I really liked on someones blog, Dorothea edging by Georgia Seitz. I contacted Georgia and got her to send me two of her books, tatting on the edge, and tatting tiny treasures.
Started on the edging, and....
Okay, what did I do wrong....can you spot the mistake?
on to the next one,

Can you spot the mistake here? At least it is not at the same spot.
I think I will do something else first, then start again.
The pattern is nice to work, but you do have to concentrate, and join rings to their proper positions, and not forget chains!

Wrap bracelets

I saw a wrap bracelet in the shop, it was not quite what I wanted, the beads were plastic, and the finish of the whole thing was sloppy. I thought I can do that....

From left to right,
bottom row: different gems, and turqoise
top row: tigereye and pyrite.

Needlebook

These past few weeks I have been following an online class from Mary Corbett. I did get scared halfway through, of cutting the fabric, and blocking. But any trepidation was not necessary, the whole thing came together beautifully.
Great class, and Mary Corbett is a great teacher!
The front, stitched with wool, linen and silk.



the back, I love the eggs in the nest! Did sign my work.

International Tatting Day

Today is International Tatting Day. After getting the paint of my fingers I did do some tatting.

And more baskets...

Made another flower basket for a friend,

and these two baskets:

They are made with a different technique.
Now I need to get the paint of my fingers......
