Covered baubles


Not to early to start.... The large one I used Flora thread, size 20.  For the smaller ones, Lizbeth size 20 thread. I used a  snowflake pattern by Kaye Judt from the book 'A Little 'O This A Little O' Tat for the gold one. The red one is a pattern from Mary Konior's 'Anniversary Motif. Two ladies in my tatting group suggested I use 'Liquid Stitch' to attach the tatting to the balls. So, that is what I used and so for, so good!

Your tatting looks wonderful on those glass ornaments. Are they antique ornaments?

Thank you for your kind words. Heavens no, the ornaments are cheep, after Christmas clearance sale! But, with this pretty tatting, who would know. LOL

What pattern did you use on the blue one? And did you glue them down? I like these a lot! Maybe I'll do something like this instead of snowflakes this Christmas. And I agree, it's never too early to start; in fact, I should probably tat for Christmas all year! Thanks for the inspiration.

Hmmm... you've got me thinking. I have dozens of ornaments that I bought with the intention of decorating with tatting. I bought them on clearance three or four years ago. Maybe I should get started!

Your ornaments are lovely!

Just a note to say that I used 'Liquid Stitch' to attach the tatting to the balls. I like the result, so far.
