I finished another project and I really enjoyed planning out the design of the mat for this project. Once again, I used my scrapbook supplies to do this. The Kokopelli on the left is designed by Debbie Flork and the pattern on the right is by Jane Eborall, both patterns can be found be found on Jane's site. We have two pictures that were given to us by friends that at one time lived in Taos, New Mexico. So the pictures have that Southwest flavor. I am going to hang the tatted Kokopelli with the two other picutres that I have. I think the pictures look good together.

Framed Tatted Heart
I posted this heart below when I finished tatting it, but I just recently finished framing it. Once again, I used my Creative Memories Scrapbook paper, punches and cutters to create the mat. The heart pattern is from Pam Palmer's Tatting Treats book. I painted the frame to coordinate with the colors of mat I made.
I have been teaching my friend, Rayanna, to tat and she picked it up very quickly. I went over to her house last night to tat some. She is working on a Awareness Ribbon, in pink. I was working a little cross from Patti Duff's Mini Tats book. I want to put the cross in the scrapbook I am doing. I will use it on the pages that have pictures of when my children were baptized.
Then I need to figure out what to tat next. I have so many things I want to tat, it is hard to choose what to do next.
