Christmas tatting (10, 11, 12, and 13/25)

Here is some of my tatted Christmas gifts. Hopefully the recipients enjoy them. I like to make gifts especially for the person and pick colors that I think they would enjoy.

This first is the first round of a wreath designed by Laura Bobay and found at Tat-man's site. I made 3 of these for the neighbors. I was excited to find that one neighbor's mom used to tat and was able to see some of her mom's tatting. She thought that tatting was a lost art! This is tatted in Lizbeth 20 leaf green medium. The beads are clear and all that I had. I wish that I would have had red beads, but the only beads are found at least 2 hours from me. Next time I get near a craft store I sense some red beads getting sold to me.
These are what are going in my Christmas cards this year which will be send out next year. They are tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Christmas delight. The pattern is by Birgit Phelps.
These are the Easy Tatted Cross posted at In-Tatters by xstchntat. Thanks for posting this xstchntat. For some reason I had a rough time on the first one, but they tatted up extra quick after that. There are a few more to be tatted as well. The colors (in clockwise order) are Autumn Spice, Leafy Green, Spring Garden, Caribbean, Tropical Punch.
And last but not least are some necklace pendants. These are the ones that I found on Pieknits blog. The non-black ones are size 20 Lizbeth Vineyard Harvest and size 40 Lizbeth Turquoise Twist.
Merry Christmas to all!!!

  3. Wow! Everything looks so great! Like Christmas all in one place! :)

  4. Thanks all. Hopefully everyone likes their gifts!

  5. You've certainly been busy! That's a lot of tatting! I really like that wreath. I can't seem to find it at Tatman's site, though. And I especially like the pendant motifs. Thanks for the link to PieKnits' blog. She has an unusual but interesting site, and shares several tatting patterns.

    I feel sad that you are so far away from the craft stores. However, I have spent a lot of money in them, and it would probably be better if they weren't so close by! LOL! But I feel so inspired when I go there. I love to be around arts and crafts, as most of us do!

    Happy Holidays!

  6. Kathy--yes it is rough when you need something to not be near a craft store. But it does make the times inside one very nice. I'm going to be going to one in less than one week and am working on my list :) I don't want to forget anything.

  7. PS: Kathy the wreath might look a bit different since I left off the outer round. It is under motifs and it a wreath attached to muslin fabric with a red bow. Hopefully that will help you find it.

  8. Thanks for coming over to my blog and also for replying here!

    I finally discovered the wreath is on Tat-man's actual website and not in his blog (at least not yet). I've already printed out the pattern and hope to try it soon! It looks fine both with the first round and the second!

    I sure hope you find all the things you want at the craft store!
