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!

More Christmas Tatting - Motif #5 & #6

Here are two more motifs that I tatted over Christmas. I made a Christmas Card and added the tatted tree. This is a very cute little tree. Then I tatted this lovely bell and added a jingle bell to it. I found both of these patterns at: Wanda's Knotty Thoughts

Thank you for sharing these patterns Wanda!

I finished tatting the edge for the gloves I received for Christmas. I need to attach the tatting and I will post a picture next time.

I am currently working my way through Heather's (The Tarnished Tatter) new book that she published right before Christmas. She has so many cute patterns in her book. I'll post picture of the motifs when I finish a few more.
