Finished (12/25)

These are the reason why I haven't had as much time to tat. There are 3 more that didn't make the picture. Juggling balls!! We decided to learn how to juggle. Tom-Kat is great, but I haven't quite mastered it yet. Hopefully soon. The kitten loves to "juggle" like mom--that is throw the balls everywhere.

The bracelet is finally finished. My wrist is really small, so it is way too big for me. I would need to take one of the flowers out for it to work for me. Just so I can remember, the bracelet is about 9 inches long. I'm going to wear it just the same this weekend at a function and will probably give it to the first person who likes it and has a bigger wrist :) Thanks so much to Jane Eborall for the button flower pattern. I think that I will be making more of these!

And last but not least. Here is one of my current tatting projects. This is Mary Konior's glass mat spinning wheel done in Lizbeth size 20 Country Turquoise Medium. Sorry the picture isn't great, but I didn't feel like working with the scanner :) Hopefully I can finish it soon and show you the finished project. I'm also working on an edging for a skirt of the kitten--I might be asking for opinions next week.


  1. The juggling balls are cool! I could never figure out how jugglers could do 3 or more, but that's ok.
    Love the bracelet!
    The Spinning Wheel mat is looking very nice too. :)

  2. Bracelet is awesome! And I'd suggest to not make it any shorter. 9" is perfect for anklet, but that's just me. Lately I have a thing for tatting on feet....oh well.

  3. I'm still working on the juggling. They are made out of pair of old jeans (I can never throw good fabric away).

    Thanks for the feet advice agasunset. I just tried in on and my ankles are to big. I guess this bracelet is just meant for someone else!

  4. That bracelet is beautiful! And your tatting on the spinning wheel mat is fabbo!

    I cannot believe you have tackled that pattern so soon in your tatting career. It took me a long while to get the courage to take on that one, and I had a lot of trouble with it the first time.

    So, good for you! Nice work. I look forward to seeing this when it is done.
    Fox : )

  5. I haven't thought about juggling in years, it's going to be a fun thing to learn. Please let me know how your progress goes.

    Beautiful bracelet!!
