Tatted Edge for Gloves

I received a pretty cream colored gloves for Christmas, and I thought how nice they would look with a pretty tatted navy edging. So I searched all my tatting books until I found the perfect edging. I found it in an old Dover book "Tatting Doilies & Edgings" by Rita Weiss. I used Oren Bayan 50 color #747 Navy with a silver lined crystal bead. The motif on the top of the glove is from Patty Duff's "Mini Tats Book" Mofif #21.
Here is a close up of the gloves.

I also finished some crosses that I made for a friend and will post them next time.
I'm not sure how to count this in the motif challenge, But there are two motifs and 2 seperate edgings, so I guess this would be Motif # 7, 8, 9 & 10. I'm doing pretty good this time on the challenge, I only started this challenge on January 1, 2009 and I'm already up to #10. I actually have much more than that done already, but I need to take pictures of everything. I wonder how quickly I can get this challenge completed. The first time I did the challenge, It took me 10 months to complete.
I just wanted to thank Sharon and the gang for hosting the challenge and show-casing what all we have been tatting.
Happy Tatting everyone!

TattingChic, Sherry, Carol, Bonnie, Gina, Jane and Diane, thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much. I was quite pleased how the edging turned out. I used navy because a friend crocheted me a hat and it is navy with a cream colored edging and she also gave me the gloves and offered to crochet an edge on them, but I surprised her and tatted an edge for the gloves. She loved them. I have gifted my friend Debbie with a few pieces of my tatting, she was thrilled with each piece.

Its funny how just the right touches can make something spectacular. The gloves are elegant. Its a great way to add tatting to something you use everyday (at least during the winter).

Melissa, victats, Draffin Bears, Connie, Judy & Linda, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me such nice comments and feedback to my tatted gloves. Since everyone thinks they turned out so nice, I think I will make a few pair and give out as Christmas gifts next year. They didn't take long to make at all.
