Back to Blogging

Hi everyone :-) I wonder by now if everyone has stopped even bothering with my blog as I have been gone for sooooo long. Work and my fall show season got the better of me, and I found myself with no time and no desire to write anything at the end of a long day. Even though it is now tax season, without shows I have a little more time to do things, and so I thought I'd resurrect the blog. I can't promise a post every day (what in the world would I talk about!?), but I'll definitely try to be more consistent than I have been.

Anyway, I thought I'd try out this new pattern by Yarnplayer - found here. How I wish I were as prolific and talented a designer as she is. How I wish I had the time! Fortunately for me, and for many of you too, I'm sure, we have wonderfully talented designers out there. I just loooove this pattern, and wanted to make earrings out of it the moment I saw it. Enjoy!

YAY! Hooray! Three cheers for back to blogging! Oh, so if it's three cheers then that's just two. I'd better come up with a third...
Wooo Hooo!!!
Glad to have you back! You and your beautiful tatting have been missed in blogland. The earrings are gorgeous (as always)!

Good to see you back in the blogging world.

The earrings are very pretty. They are on my "To Tat List" also.

Happy Tatting!

So nice to see you back,I hadn't given up on you. I know that tatting was in your blood and you'd have something to share sooner or later. Very pretty rendition of yarnplayer's earrings.
So good I want to tat them now.

Welcome back! I actually made the same pattern but with slight modification of fliping the chain inside to give it an edgy feel. But your's look awesome. I had hard time hiding ends of last split ring. How did you do it? I would love to know. Very neat work!

I actually didn't start where Yarnplayer said to start in the pattern - I started on one of the side split rings. I would recommend not doing that top ring as a split ring unless you are going to actually be using it for an ornament - just make it a regular ring. With the way you did the pattern you could also start the pattern at any ring.

I use the magic thread trick to hide ends.
