Spring is in the air....

This little lady will be motif #12. She is Nancy Tracy's pattern made in DMC 30. As I was tatting her I felt the weather changing maybe by tatting spring things it will make spring come faster. (I hope!!) We have been enjoying some beautiful weather here in southern Ontario with more to come later this week. I do not mind the rain because it washes the snow away.

Now who doesn't love a teddy bear. I think I still have some of my teddy bears from when I was little. (Only a few years ago!!)LOL
This is Heather Johnston pattern. I did one in pink for my niece.

This is motif #13.

This only seems right for my #14th motif and February 14th being this Saturday to tat Georgia's Heart Doily by Georgia Seitz in DMC 30. It gave my the chance to practice split rings.

Motif #9, 10 &11

If you have read my blog in the past you will know I'm a up beat person. So I'm sorry this entry is a little cold. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF SNOW. UNCLE ALREADY. I would have loved to have so much more to show you in tatted items but I have been busy shoveling snow. Even my dog has had enough. Here she is looking for a spot to pee.
My husband had to snowplow a path in the back yard for her.

I think I may have broken some tatting rules when tatting little Ringtrim here. I have never tatted with two colours before and being a needle tatter it was a little harder to follow the pattern. This guy will be motif #9.
He still turned out pretty good. I used DMC size 30.

This pattern is from Debbie Arnolds site ds9designs. He is going to be a birthday gift for someone who is from the U.S. and now lives here in Canada. I made him in size 10 thread.

This is motif #11 and it's Nancy Tracy's pattern and made in DMC size 30. I like to call it my heart of gold.
