"A" is for ........(22/25)

I haven't been tatting much due to time--life is going to continue to be crazy for at least other month, but then there is much hope that it will settled down some. I have been checking other tatting blogs, but usually when the kitten is up and running away. Thus, I haven't been able to comments as I would have liked. But I have seen some beautiful tatting!!

I'm trying to tat a last name as a wedding gift--there last name is only 4 letters :) But I'm not sure that I like the 2 colors together in this. The colors are Lizbeth's mocha light and medium. I'm trying to make it as neutral as possible so that the couple can change the matted color if need be. Any suggestions? Oh and you can find the pattern on Il Chiacchierino Edda Guastalla Bianchetti.

The kitten's skirt (21/25)

Well the edging is finally finished for the kitten's skirt. Now if I can only figure out how I want to attach it. I get these great ideas, but forget about the small details. I don't really want to try and hand sew through denim--especially the really thick hem line. I'm thinking about machine sewing the edging along the yellow/orange hem line. I've read somewhere that it is nice to sew down the bottom of the lace as well for washing purposes so we will see what I can come up with for that. Any suggestions?

in need of some color (20/25)

I'm taking a break from the white Piecework mat because I'm was in need of some color!! I got some new colors of Lizbeth and needed to try them out. So I tatted up Brigit Phelps's sweetheart. The left is Turquoise Twist in size 40 and the right one is Berry Bust in size 20.

The heat left for a few days, but it back now. May snow come soon!!!
