Happy Sunday! Well, there won't be a tree for the tatted ornaments this year. I decided to give each of my coworkers an ornament for Christmas, which leaves me with about twelve ornaments out of approximately sixty-five. That would be one sad little tree and there is no way I'd get enough done before Xmas to make it look full -- not that I won't try!
So as I start over, here are two to add to next year's tree:
The camel was tatted in Finca size 16 and I just noticed I forgot to add fringe to the bottom of his fancy saddle. The poinsettia is tatted in size 80 DMC, green and variegated reds. This one gave me fits because I had such a hard time joining them together with the yellow. I ended up missing a red petal, so don't look too closely at the center. It's not right, but I think I can come up with a way to hide it.
Both ornaments are by Dolly Hollander, but I can't give you the URL to find them because I ain't sharing. Just kidding! Actually, I do believe I got them from the old Round Robins site that was run by Maus. I must have saved close to sixty patterns before the site was dismantled. It was definitely my favorite place to get patterns from. This was in the days when tatting was still new to me and I had no idea of all the websites dedicated to the craft.
