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?"
