Hi +Stevie Miller and +Suzanne Bakker , here are photos of both the chain of the medallions and a close up of a couple of them...it is hand-tatted lace...the medallions are approximately 2-1/2" in diameter...Suzanne picked out the color and the pattern from several patterns I showed her I knew how to do...Hope you like them, plus, wasn't my dog Hailey sweet as she watched from her chair?

My new chickens...four little hens and one rooster...they are 25 weeks old. The hens should start laying eggs anytime now...looking forward to fresh eggs daily! The black and white hens are called Plymouth Barred Rock and the dark red hens and rooster are called Rhode Island Reds. Anyone have suggestions on names for them? My husband wants to name the rooster Cogburn (he is so clever, he thinks!)

Hi +Suzanne Bakker and +Violette Carpentier , I wanted you to see the simple tatted trim I made for a Christening gown. It is a silk thread, which was somewhat different to work with than cotton as it is more "slick" and would not hold the stitches as tightly. The Christening gown is a reproduction of an antique original gown I have in my collection. I took measurements of the original and drafted up a new pattern. I am in the process of making a cap with tatted trim on it to match the dress, as well as a pair of tatted baby booties to go with the dress and hat. I am stuck on the petticoat pattern, however, as the original did not have one with it, and so shall have to design that pattern myself. I plan on using a very small tatted trim without any picots on it for the trim for the slip. When I eventually get the whole project completed, I will take photos. I am trying to develop a series of items to sell through Etsy.com, as +Bliss Morgan does. I am very s-l-o-w, however!!

Hi, +Suzanne Bakker , I am forwarding photos of the trims I have been working on for you. These can be made larger or smaller depending on what size thread you use. They can also have more or fewer "picots" or little fringe loops in each of the rings, depending on what you like and what the pattern calls for.

I am still working on several trims using the wheels, or medallions, like the wheel in the first photo. Please give me another week or so to provide these photos...I find I'm somewhat slow, but I do neater work with fewer mistakes that have to be fixed when I go slowly.

I am anxious to know which trims you like best! I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Kindest regards,

Brenda

As per +Suzanne Bakker 's request of the other day, here is a photo of something green: velvet tufted upholstery on an antique oak chair, which also has a matching rocking chair...they are my newest antique acquisitions, and they are happily residing in my living room...
