Heart o' Daisies

I tatted this heart to put on a card for my daughter's birthday.  It is another one of Jon Yussoff's designs.  It looks so pretty with this thread.  Anchor Mercer crochet no 20.  The daisies are joined by split rings and the chain added after.  Jon has tatted a two colour one which looks entirely different.

Daisy and Butterfly Bookmark

I tatted this pretty bookmark from Ladytats pattern Daisy and Butterfly Bookmark.  I love the way she has made each butterfly join to the next one and the little flower petals. So sweet.  
The long chain to join to the last flower is made with Josephine knots.
The thread I used is an Anchor Mercer Crochet  no 20 A very pretty variegated thread.

Billy Goat Gruff TIAS

This is the finished Billy Goat Gruff that I tatted in the TIAS designed by Jane Eborall.  The whole pattern is here...  There are lots of lovely free patterns on Jane site.  Well worth a visit.

Sadly this week we lost a lovely person in Tatland Gina (Tattinggoddess)  I didn't know her personally but enjoyed her blog and her comments on the Tattinggoddess List.  She will be greatly missed.

Secret Santa 2011

This is what Lorena Finnerty sent me in the Secret Santa Exchange.  The pretty Tatted mini doily she adapted from Susanne Schwenke's 'Musterbeschreibung'   I love the colours. 
The thread is an HDT by Karey Solomon. Must find a really nice pattern to tat with that.
The beautifully neat bracelet, Lorena made herself from Parachute cord. 
Some scrummy chocolates and a cute little note clip board. 
How lucky am I !!
