Motif #7

This oak leaf and acorn came from Tatting Turns Over a New Leaf by Karey Solomon. Seed beads were added to give the illusion of dew drops on the leaf. I made an extra long stem and attached an acorn for a bookmark. It is now living with a friend who collects oak leaves and acorns.

[Edited to replace the photo with a better one. Much better one. ]

Still here

I'm still here. I've done some projects, but either haven't had time to take photos, or clean up and post the photos I have taken. I've enrolled in Sharon's Tatting Design class. I feel terrible because I haven't posted any of the assignments. I knew that my boyfriend was going to be home from deployment the same week the class started but figured I could get caught up after he left.

Yeah.... I'm working about one lesson behind what is posted. I read all the emails, but I try not to look at the photos until I'm done because I don't want to be influenced by the other's assignments. But the other day I did cave and look at everyone's first attempts at design. So beautiful and original. I don't know if I would have come up with something like that.

I've got Friday off and Labor Day as well, so maybe I can get some photos taken for next week.
