Tatted Crosses, Blog Award & Aileen's Halloween Mystery Giveaway

I have so much to blog about, but I am still not feeling 100% from being sick. But I would like to show a much honored blog award that I received from Carolyn at Draffin Bears. She has awarded me the Bella Sinclair Award. The Bella Sinclair award is for Art Inspiration, Friendship Sisterhood, Sharing, and Caring. Bella is such an awesome person who is a very talented artist and a very caring person. Please visit her blog as well as Carolyn's blog, they are both such wonderful ladies.

I would like to pass it along to a few people whom I enjoy sharing e-mails with and visiting their blogs as well:

Laura at Laura's Tatting Muse

Pamela at Tats a Kool Challenge

Isdihara at Ambitatterous Tatting Tea Tuesday

Aileen at Aileen's Wicked Tats

Thank you again Carolyn for passing this award on to me.

I also wanted to mention that
Aileen at Aileen's Wicked Tats is having a Hallowversary Mystery Giveaway on her site. So far there will be three prizes awarded. How fun is that. Can't wait to see who wins and what the prizes are. Thank you Aileen for the chance to win a mystery gift. Click here to enter her giveaway.

Sometime ago I made a couple of crosses for a friend, I think the one on the left was from Rebecca Jones book and the other from a Ring of Tatters book. Both are very easy crosses to make.

I am currently tatting leaves to add to a table scarf that I have crossed stitched leaves on. I made the table scarf about 10 years ago and I thought the addition of some tatted leaves with Yarnplayer's HDT Sugar Maple would look good on the scarf. I am almost done tatting the leaves and I want to tat a few pumpkins as well. I will blog about it when I am finished.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!

The crosses are beautiful! I haven't looked at Rebecca Jones's book in a while. I think I'll pull it off the shelf and get some tatting inspiration!

Congrats on your lovely award! Your tatted items are so pretty. Yarnplayer has a new HDT out calle "Autumn Leaves"? Oh, goodie! I love her "Sugar Maple" and that is my FAVE autmnal HDT to tat with, but I didn't know she had another one. I'll have to go check out her Etsy shop.

Thank you for honoring me with the Bella Sinclair blog award.

Your crosses look great!

Hope you feel tip-top real soon!

Hi Diane, Yes, do look at Rebecca Jones book again. She has many quick, easy and fun patterns in the book.

Hi Jeannette, Thanks for stopping by. I'll post pictures of my leaves and pumpkins as soon as I'm finished.

Hi TattingChic, I made a mistake in my blog post. I am using Sugar Maple to tat my leaves. I couldn't find my tag that came with the thread and thought it was called Autumn leaves. My mistake. I already fixed it in my post to say sugar maple.

Hi Isdihara, you are welcome for the award. Your tatting is beautiful. Thanks for the well wishes also.
