My mom is visiting for the holiday season, and I’m so excited to have her here. I got a few days off work so I can thoroughly enjoy her visit.
Also, yesterday I had a great meeting with the coordinator for an organization I’m connecting with. I’m so excited to work with them and everything is now set and ready to go. More details soon.
Now for some eye candy. Every Christmas I make a few of these cute tatted angels to put on my tree and to give as gifts. They’re fast and easy to make, and look so cute on top of presents. (I forgot to take a picture of the ones I made this year before giving them away, so these two little angels are off my tree. I needled tatted these little cuties many, many years ago.)
These cute tassel angels are from a pattern in the Big Book of Tatting by Darlene Polachic. The thread is chunky Aunt Lydia’s in size 10; the same ball that I’m still trying to use up 10 years later. Why did I buy in bulk?
You make the wings and halo separately, then glue them onto a small tassel and add a bow. The tassels already have a loop on the top so they are ready to hang on your tree, on a present, etc.
These angels are my motif number 8 in the 25 Motif Challenge.
Happy holidays to all!
