After Christmas, I was so looking forward to some leisurely tatting with some new patterns I had recently downloaded. The big Christmas rush, with numerous snowflakes and bells to get done and gifted before Dec. 25 was very stressful, and on Dec. 26 it was time to relax, right? Wrong! My next door neighbor reminded me that I had promised to tat an entire tea set for her to give as a wedding gift in mid January. Said tea set has 5 different pieces, so it takes some time to tat. So I put away my new patterns and colorful thread and got out the boring old white and blue. I was very sick of white thread after all those snowflakes. But I must admit, the tea set turned out beautifully after my neighbor mounted the pieces onto silver card stock and framed it. Here is the result.
