Bad picture --Cell phone hates me and, in my excitement, I didn't care that it was too dark for a picture. :-P
What I used:
Vinyl shelf paper that I picked up Michael's last year for around thirty cents. :-)
A little pearl accent.
Clay roses that I made a while back.
"Triple Thick" brush-on gloss glaze by DecoArt (A.C. Mom couldn't find her Mod Podge and I was too antsy to wait, so I had her send over the tub of this stuff.). ;-)
The roses were only used because I went into my organizer looking for a flat clay accent. These screamed at me, though, and were sick of being neglected.
My cell phone didn't hate me as much today while the sun was still up. ;-) I really thought the roses were going to fly of the first time I tatted with this shuttle, but the pearl got in my way more! O.o Go figure. It's no where near perfect and I'm sure it'll fall apart on me next time I use it, but I'm pretty proud. :-P (As an added 'Yay' this project used up things that were sitting in my craft cubby being neglected.).
A HUGE THANK YOU TO Fox FOR THIS SHUTTLE!!! Not only did her generosity help me get comfortable with shuttle tatting (I cherish my Clovers! I thought I'd love bobbin shuttles, but, nope, these are my favorites so far!). :-D Thank you, thank you, thank you, Fox!!!! ♥
And, now, some tatting! LOL. A friend asked for a dragonfly so a dragonfly she received...
The pattern is one of the amazing Jane's. I had to take out my needle for this, though, because I just can not seem to manage a split ring on the shuttles --yet! :-P
Well, I got a bit hooked (and had more requests, LOL), so...
...And then I got caught up on Ms. Margaret's dream catcher pattern and, well... I think I'm all caught up...
Oops. That's a lie.
Mr. Tatman's turtle was also completed! :-D I made a huge mess of this little guy last time I tried him, but it was smooth sailin' this time! Isn't he adorable? I wish I had threads to match my turtle's coloring!!!
Well, that's all for today. LOL.
Happy tatting to all!
