Pretty in pink!

Here is a pink set for a young teenager.....matching scrunchie and earrings!

Unfortunately I haven't been able to do much tatting as my mum has been very poorly with pneumonia! Brought her over for Christmas on the Friday (19th) and had to call for the paramedics on Saturday. She was able to come out of hospital by Christmas Eve but went downhill again so that I had to call the emergency doctor out yesterday. She seems to be a little better today but at nearly 82 years old it is going to be a slow recovery!

Cakes again!

Tatting has had to take a back seat this week while I made and decorated some cakes. I have done my brother's 60th birthday cake and decorated with a fishing theme as he is greatly into fly and course fishing. I hope he likes the fact that I have depicted him as a frog! LOL

The other cakes are a Christmas cake for a dear friend with a frog sledging down a snowy slope and an upside down frog in the snow with just his bottom and legs sticking out! LOL and just a plain covered Christmas cake for home! I never seem to have time to do anything exotic for myself, hence no picture!

Celtic Bookmark - my own design

Here is a picture of my latest design....a celtic bookmark.
I started with an idea of making central motifs joining through each other as I tatted them and then the outer rounds just sort of emerged!
It has been tatted with Coates cotton size 40.
I won't be doing the pattern for as I think it is too complicated to write out!

Heart Bookmark

Browsing through a Mary Konior pattern book I saw an edging pattern that I thought I would be able to adapt into a bookmark and this is the end result!
