Puzzle piece #2

How can I not include tatting into my puzzle pieces. I tatted this black and red hummingbird sometime last year. I am glad to use it. The hummingbird tatting pattern is by Sherry Matthews. Unfortunately the link to the pattern is no longer accessible. I did not know how to tat the long beak so I decided to use some Delica beads. The flower on the lower right corner is tatted with Swarovski bicones. Decided to add some czech glass flower beads and I embroidered the flower stem and leaf in stem stitch and stain stitch.


  1. Loved your first piece, but I was waiting to see if you would add some tatting. This is really pretty.

    I'll be very interested in seeing how you do the finishing. That seems like the really tedious part to me.

  2. Your puzzle piece is absolutely gorgeous!

  3. I know what you mean, Annie. I was worried too. I have done the finishing and was not too happy with it. I hope it will not be noticed much.

    Thank you Diane!
