It's a bit early for Christmassy things, but I suppose this has an everyday vibe to it as well... it's my latest addition to my Etsy shop, a tatted angel, and I originally bought the pattern from Lacemakermom on... Etsy!
For those unfamiliar with tatting, it's a series of knots and picots, sometimes in a loop, sometimes in a straight line, and it can be done with a tatting needle or with shuttles. I prefer shuttles. I learned tatting on YouTube. If you can get hold of tatting shuttles, it's a great craft to try! This angel was a little bit complex, but there are simpler patterns you can start out with. I do love this angel though...
It's in a little 4-inch silver frame that I got from Wendy at Scrapbooks And Cookbooks. She is participating in Blogtober, as I am.
