New neighbors in town...

This our new neighbor, a Merlin hawk. We believe that there is a family of 3 moved in. I'm hoping this is a good sign to all the work being done to clean up our lakes and streams. Cleaner streams mean more bugs, more bugs mean more birds and more birds mean more beautiful hawks. We have lived here for over 10 years and this is the first time we have seen this type of hawk.
I only have one more row to do on this doily. It is the "Occasional Doily" from the book Tatting Doilies and Edgings edited by Rita Weiss. I'm using DMC Cebelia size 30 colour no. 524. I hate to say this but this will be for a Christmas gift. I'll post and count it in the challenge when I'm finished.
This is a bracelet I'm trying out. A friend told me the info over the phone on how to do the beaded center split ring. I'm not sure if I got it right. Try, try, and try some more.

Happy Tatting
