Christmas Tradition with Wendy

This year I made a tatted ornament for our tree so I wanted to make one with tatting for my traditional ornament exchange with my dear friend Wendy!
You can click on any of the photos to see them closer! This first photo is for size reference it is a small red ball ornament that I attached tatting and beading to.
The pattern is #31 in the book Mini Tats in white size 10 DMC Cebelia thread. The beading is not a part of the tatting but separately sewn on. I glued using E6000 on small spots to attach the tatting to the ball and then took beading thread and needle with the tiny size 15 beads going along the picots. I used pearl white, clear, and gold beads along with some Czech crystal drop beads. I just love how it turned out!

Your tatted ball orny is beautiful and so is your tatted snowflake. I must admit I giggle every time you take a pic of your tree and I see my little CQ stocking prominently front and center. =) Makes me smile for sure!

I hope you and Gerard are doing well... esp. with his surgery recovery and your hands/wrists with all this tatting, embroidery, etc. !!!
