Celtic Tatted Cross and My Prize has Arrived

I haven't been able to do much tatting lately,  I am working 2 part time jobs now.   I'll have more time in the summer to tat as one of my jobs is at an elementary school, so when school is out I'll just be working part time at the Library. 

I did mange to tat this Celtic Cross by Ruth Perry.  I like how the chains cross each other and the celtic center.  I used one of my favorite Lizbeth threads, Wildflower #109 and the solid match, Dusty Rose #621.  I also did this cross in two shades of green awhile ago. 

Also when I have a few free moments, I like to blog surf.  I'll either do a google search on tatting and just go to different links or at the top of the blogs you can hit the button (Next Blog).  You never know what blog you will end up at, but I love to get lost while surfing blogs.  I have found some interesting blogs this way.  Funny, I did some surfing just now and came across a tatter's blog I have never seen before and she has the same celtic cross on her blog.  The Space Between, she tatted her cross in a magenta and dusty rose, very nice!!

Aileen at Aileen's Wicked Tats, had a Birthday giveawy and I was a lucky winner in her giveaway.  I was so surprised that I won.  Aileen sent so many goodies to use for tatting.  Look at those colorful buttons.  I see some tatted brooches from them and one can always use more beads. :)  I also look forward to trying out the tatted rings.  I see on Aileen's blog she has been tatting with these rings and making scissor fobs and pendants.  Great idea!!  Thank you so much Aileen for your generous gift! 

I don't know if you all have been to Lady Picot's blog, but she tatted a manger scene that I think is fantastic!  My favorite parts of this are the Angel in the sky and the Star of Bethlehem... the sheep are cute too.  She also tatted a Gorgeous doily in black, red and gold.  She has lots of eye candy on her site.

Well I'm off to work.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Happy Tats!!
