Fringe Element Tatting project

I'm teaching again this fall at the Fringe Element Tatdays.  For me beads seem to be the theme this both classes I'm teaching involve beads.  This is the bugle bead snowflake class project.

Bunny Invasion!

I finally had the money to order some shuttles I really wanted.  Carollyn Tenn Brown hand carves beautiful bunny shuttles.  I have wanted one since she started selling them a few years ago.
I came back from the Fingerlakes tatting seminar with some money left over.  I know that's a big surprise! 
So I asked Carollyn if she was still making them...and she said yes!  I couldn't decide which one to buy so I took all 3.  
They are perfect and came beautifully packaged in their own nests.

Finger Lakes Tatting Seminar

This weekend is the Fingerlakes tatting seminar in beautiful Lodi.  On Friday Kelly and I load up my Escape and make the pilgramage to Lodi, New York.  Pictured below is the kit designed by me that is available at the seminar for $1.  The kit includes pattern and mirrors but not thread.  The money goes to the Finger Lakes tatting guild's fundraiser.  They are available after the seminar at Tatting Corner and the money will still go to the fundraiser thanks to Lisa!

Sometimes it pays off to make up kits!  I have built up a selection of leftover kits that I've made for various reasons.  These bunny bookmarks are one of the first kits I've donated at the finger lakes tatting seminar for the fundraiser.  Its perfect that I've found them because I just told my niece i woild make her bookmarks for Easter!  Now I don't need to go looking for beads and thread, i can just start tatting.  Perfect!

Update on the Elements CAL

The Elements CAL is at week 10 but I'm only done to week 5.  This project has been a load of fun and I'm very thankful to Hooks and Yarn for hosting the CAL on their facebook group and to Sandra Kuijer for sharing her design.  Its larger than it looks in the picture and I'm thinking the next few rounds will start to be slow.  The original design is in the Scheepjes Stonwash which is a great cotton yarn.  I am doing mine in Patons Canadiana because that's my favorite acrylic yarn and I had a gift certificate.

I celebrated the New Year by working on the Elements CAL .  Unfortunately I had to go back about of rows yesterday because of a missed stitch that made everything go askew.
