Happy Easter...and yes it is actually Easter today! That makes 2 holidays in a row that I have posted my holiday project right on time! Craziness I know.
These were actually pretty fun to make. It is a super simple pattern that comes from the book Tatted Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen. I used Artiste #10 thread and its called "spring". The thread was a joy to work with and it may be one of my favorite colors as well. I made 17 of these to give to family and friends and I am going to call them #10 in the motif challenge. These were actually pretty time consuming to make for as simple as they look. The little beaded chicks took quite a bit of time to make and I ended up having to starch the tatting so by the time I was done making 17 complete ornaments I never wanted to make another one but low and behold I remembered that I forgot to add someone to my list so I am going to have to buckle down and make one more which will bring the total up to 18 (Yes I did that math in my head)
