One of my favorite things about living in Pennsylvania is fall. Cooler temperatures, beautiful leaves, Steeler's football, apples, cider, pumpkins, mums - I just love the season. So when September comes around, I pull out all my orange and other fall-friendly threads and my tatting takes on a distinctly fall flavor.
This is Rosemarie Peel's small Celtic motif from "Tatting for Pleasure." I love this design - especially with beads. I've been wearing this one myself to celebrate fall's arrival.
Next - my pumpkin earrings, slightly updated this year based on the fact I've discovered some different findings and decided I liked the tatted pearl better turned upside-down. (There really isn't a right way up I just had decided in my own head which side was the top and now I've changed my mind - at least for the pumpkins.) :-)
I've also been playing with Yarnplayer's new "Small Maple Leaf" pattern. Love, love, LOVE this clever little pattern! The pattern is written so well, it works up relatively quickly, and it looks just like a maple leaf. Yarnplayer is a very talented designer.
That's all the tatting for this past week - I've been studying for the first section of the CPA exam which I will be taking this coming Saturday. Say a prayer for me!
