Tatted Wreaths and a cute tatted edging

Some of the wreaths have beads. Some do not. One has beads for the
berries...that took forever! But worth it, I think.

P.S. I have just learned that the 'wreath' is a symbol of God's never ending love and represents eternity, unending circle of life. The berries are His blood. How awesome is that! So, now I need to get busy and finish out the ones without berries! Thank you Desiree!

Nice wreaths! What pattern did you use?

I especially like the beaded one in the lower left and also the one with the white snowflake in the center. That would be very striking if the thread were colored instead of white. It would set the center off more.

Martha, For the white one, the pattern came from "Big Book of Tatting" whitebirches.com.
The others were from a pattern Workbasket Magazine.

So worth it! These are terrific!

I tatted the smaller pattern from the same book and did not even see this one!

Thanks for mentioning the book. I am going to do the other one - yours inspired me!
