Test Tatting for Martha Ess

I was so thrilled when Martha asked me to help her out with something... Her projects for Palmetto Tat Days since I understand both shuttle and needle and can go back and forth. She wanted to know if some of her georgous designs could be done with the needle and of course I jumped at the idea. Yes Jane I used the needle, lol.
I could only do 3 of her lovelies in needle and here they are



And then she also asked me to test her block animals YIKES. I have only ever attempted block tatting just to see if I could do it, and I did it. So this is the very 1st completed block tatting item I had made, not bad for my first one huh? The bead I used for this Rhino's eye is a bit big.

It all came out well. I love the look that the shape of that bead gives the rhino's eye, too.

And the rhino looks awesome for a first time!
Have a great day! :)

Those Palmetto pieces are all too cute, especially that bookmark. It looks like broomstick lace. I love your rhino. You did a great job.

Jeeze Heather! You've been a very busy girl! Love that ring, you have done a great job. I could never do that bookmark. The Rhino is very nice and the eye fits well.
Love to see your work.
