Christmassy!


Well, at first thought this thread seemed to be a perfect match for this towel.


And now that I've finished the edging, I'm not so sure I like the color.  Dang it. At our last Twin Cities Tatters gathering, using a gray thread was suggested.  Dumb me, I never thought about GRAY - I only had SILVER in mind.  I'm not sure gray would be right either - it seems like it could be too light.  In any case, I think it will do - it's just not as good as I had envisioned :(

And looking at my Christmas tree, I see this tatted wreath ornament from when I first learned to tat.  It was one of the very first things I made, and I made many as gifts!  I still like it - so simple!  


On with this Christmas week.  For so many reasons, this Christmas season has me full of hope and wonder once again.  I'm so ready for some vacation and some planning for the New Year!

  1. Maybe it's the way different monitors show colors, but I think the edging looks great with the towel! I love your little wreath, especially that cheerful little bow!

    1. Thanks - it does at least "blend", it's just darker when tatted than I thought it would be. I do still like that little wreath, too!

  4. Color choices are the hardest. My mom would have chosen a minor, accent color and used it. She had a good eye for making things pop. But, there aren't many colors there...
    Love the little wreath. I think you tatted well from the very start!

  5. Edging is perfect! :)

    Wrote you a long email. I edited it for a spelling error and the entire thing disappeared! Do not know what happened... I'll try again soon, :)

    1. Thanks! My iPad AND my laptop are acting up lately. Let's blame Google.

  6. Cindy, I love the little wreath you tatted as a beginning tatter! This year I came across the first thing Christmas thing I tatted (also a wreath) but I wouldn't dare take a picture nor share it publicly! I'd like to think I've improved! haha

    Merry Christmas! Hope to see you in the New Year.
