The invasion has begun....



Yes it's true, the christmas balls have landed.


One down, and like 20 more to go.....I really don't know how many actually! I should count..


The thread is one of the newer Lizbeth colorways. Springtime...or Spring flowers, or something like that. The pattern is from Needle Tatting with Style. Oh how I do enjoy a colorful christmas tree! I have all sorts of ornaments from when I was little, and now hubby and I have of course collected some over past years. It's a beautiful mishmash of colors and styles. There is a part of me that enjoys the trees that are all co-ordinated and fancy-matchy, but the sentimental part of me rises up and beats that whole concept back into submission very quickly. My eldest is almost 3, and is more able to sit and participate in a craft.....so I envision many glitter/popsiclestick/eggcarton ornaments this year.


Speaking of participation,
Here is the little tatter in action. She has claimed the green Sew mate as hers, comes up to me when I tat and says "Where my shuddow?"

Your ornament is gorgeous! I love that your daughter is using her "shuddow!" I'm guessing it won't be long before we see bits of lace flying from her fingers!

Your daughter is a doll. It's too cute that she asks for her own shuttle. ^_^

Very cool! See, the ornies are easy peasy! Very pretty! You've done a lovely job of it.

Your little tatter is just too cute with her very own "Shuddow"! LOL! So sweet.

I am one of those gals who wishes for 2 trees...one decorator style all matchy matchy and one that is sentimental and mish-mashy! :)

Awww! Your 3-year-old has her own "Shuddow!" What a deadly little charmer she is!

Your first ball ornament turned out great! Really love the pattern you chose. And the Springtime colorway really makes it pop!

TattingChic and I quite possibly may have been separated at birth, in as far as holiday trees are concerned. I'm right there with ya, Chic. I long for one of each too!

What a sweetie!! She'll be making double stitches before you know it. I'm sure she already got down how to make knots...LOL!!

Your tatted ball is gorgeous!! The color of ball with the new Lizbeth thread is awesome!!

Yes, I saw this color of Lizbeth here, I knew I wanted it. I commented when I first saw it. I love this colorway and it looks great on the teal colored ornament.
