New Pattern Available

Thanks everyone for the information about where to get cabone rings (see my last post and comments). It is so wonderful to have a community of tatters who jump in with help and advice. I will be near a JoAnn Fabrics this weekend and will check there to see what I can find. Also, have you seen Dawn Marie's tatting around a metal heart (click here!), huh? I know I've seen other shapes like that in some of my jewelry supply catalogs - squares, circles, ovals - I just have to find them again. Of course, I have lots of craft wire and could probably make my own if I was so inclined. Maybe I'll try that to start.

For those of you interested, I have a new pattern available on etsy - Tatted Heart Earrings. That makes four patterns I've managed to write down and make into .pdf files. If anyone is really interested in any of them (Cross, Hip to Be Square Earrings, Long Elegant Earrings, Heart Earrings) but don't want to become a member of etsy in order to purchase, shoot me an e-mail and we can work out something through PayPal or snail mail.

I want to add them to the ArtFire site as well, but haven't managed to get around to that yet. I still have other patterns I want to do as well. Someday!

Elizabeth, you do a beautiful job with your blog. It's interesting to me having known you from our beginnings to see how far things have come. I love that you offer patterns to your readers and are so open to the sharing of your passion and skill. Your work is exquisite and I admire you for it.
See you around and hello to your mom :)

Your beaded heart earrings are so charming! I'm sure they will be big sellers.

Keep up the great work with your tatting. And hug Pennsylvania for me. (I was born and raised in PA.)

It's so easy to make craft wire shapes. I have a wire jig, but for the earrings in my etsy shop I just wrapped the wire around a bead tube :-)

Congratulations! I know what it is like to get a degree decades away from schooldays! I have done it as well - not easy! Good for you!

Your tatting is very beautiful; I love looking at your blog!
