I have wanted to post a new picture of my Sea Scene for some time now. I had to split it into two pictures because it is getting so big and I still have a few things I want to add to it. Will this picture ever stop growing? Most of the patterns can be found on Jane Eborall's site.

A few patterns I bought from Debbie Arnold at DS9 Design. I want to add some seaweed, Jane's Lobster and Crab. Then hopefully I will feel like I am done adding to the pictures. I still need to find some material to mount all this tatting onto. I'm not sure what kind of material or what color to use. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

Tatted Swan Bookmark

I finished the swan bookmark I was making. It is from Dianna Stevens book "ANIMAL BOOKMARKS, A Tatted Zoo" I think this is my favorite so far. The swan is so delicate. I am making a second one right now, I just have a few more rings to go. Then I will start tatting Jane Eborall's Ballerina. It is for my daughter, Katrina. I know she will like these. I'll make the pair and frame it for her. Then I will make one for my niece, who just started dance and another ballerina for my neighbor's little girl.

I wish I had more time to tat. I only get a couple hours in the evening. So it takes awhile to finish anything.
