Well, almost done with christmas tatting

Can you really be done with Christmas tatting? I love snowflakes, angels and the like!! One or two more and I am more than halfway through. I have drawn it out to prolong my own fun!! The challenge is one of the best things we have done, I think!!
The star with the beads is from Emma Crew 3/01 found on Maus' site. The one "in the works" is from BellaOnline printed off 10/06. It has some interesting design elements including SCMRs. My shuttle's knicknames are Rose (1 and 2 I guess). They belonged to a friends mom. When they stab me; they are very old Detach-A-Spools...I tell her " behave"!!
I am now well, thank goodness. (except talking to shuttles.) Got the tree up today. It was so heavy in the front it almost fell over!! DH and I went to select it, then they cut it down for you and bring to the car. The weather here in PA is 50-60s so was weird but nice weather for December.
I will post finished product when done. Have great weekend!

Snowflakes on the tree but none on the ground!!

The two rosette flakes are from Maus' round robin pages to add to my Motifs. Thank goodness I have a lot of copies from the old site!! Anyone know where they are and if they will ever be seen again? Sad day when Maus' signed off that site. I made one in glow in the dark thread...can't wait to see my tree after dark. And the smaller is from two silver metallics and hologram blending filament. It really sparkles.

I immediately got out the thread to work up Ben's flake. Was a little tricky to follow at first but easy once I started. Pretty...take a look at his site while you're at it. Lovely work!!

I am getting over the GI virus and feel too pooped to pop but did manage to have strength to tat!!

Will put up the tree this weekend. We leave it up (a live one) until after Epiphany also my oldest daughter's birthday. So will take a picture to share. Thanks to all my tatting friends on line for inspiration and creativity.
