Sea World Pattern No. 76

Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Col. 706 Sunkist Coral and Col. 169 Autumn Apple Pie. It is a turtle pattern found on page 25 and 62 of the Japanese pattern book. I was wondering if I should have used a green thread but I rather liked this colour combination. Is the head a little too big?

Japanese Pattern No. 35

This did not turn out like the photo in the book because the last round of chain was tatted facing the wrong direction. My mind was probably thinking of something else. Did not realize it until now. Tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 120 Denim Whisper.

Pandora Bracelet of the Week

This is my version of a Disney bracelet. The bracelet starts and ends with the Swirl clips. Charms from left to right are  . 
Belle’s radiant rose; Dream; When you wish upon a star; Believe; Evil Queen’s Black Magic; 

The only Disney programme on TV we had was once in a blue moon on Saturday afternoon. We looked forward to it and always wished it was a Disney fairy tale.

Josephine Knot Pattern No. 24

I noticed the Josephine knots in the book were tatted very loosely. Mine not so. Done using Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 169 Autumn Apple Pie. Not too happy with this one.

Bridge Pattern No. 29

Using Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 115 Springtime and Col. 158 Niagara Falls to tat this pattern. An unusual colour combination as I was feeling adventurous. It turned out ok? I think a solid colour thread would enhance the design of this motif as photographed in the Japanese pattern book.

Bridge Pattern No. 28

This is not perfect as the block tatting and chains should all face the same direction. Mine was not. Tatted in three rounds using Lizbeth Size 40 Col. 115 Springtime. Did not pay attention to the photo in the book. Instructions were in Japanese but you should be able to figure it out second time round, if not initially. I was obviously not paying attention as I usually tat while watching the television.
