I'm a little late getting this posted. The first item is a name tag. The class was called Stellar Keepsake Pendant taught by Anita Barry. The one I made at Tat Days was in Rainbow Taffy. I made another one in Lizbeth Caribean, size 20.
Another class was covering a cabone ring. The class was called Ring of Flowers and taught by Paige Deputy. I had attempted covering a cabone ring before but was not comfortable with the technique nor could I put it down because I got confused on the rhythm of making the double stitches. Thanks to this class, I can now put it down if needed. I used Lizbeth Autumn Spice, size 20.
I'm still working on the Interlaced Motif. That's one that takes concentration.
Apparently this year I was to work on my split ring because 2 of my classes used that - Stellar Keepsake Pendant and Love 2 Tat.
As usual had a great time and can't wait for next year. Meanwhile I have the Florida Tat Days in January to tide me over until September.

I finally finished Starlight Doily #7688 and can be found on page 15 in Paragon Tatting Book 1. A reprint of the pattern is located on page 7 in The Tatter's Treasure Chest. I used Lizbeth #153 Rainbow Taffy and #604 Black.
I will probably make this again but I'll use a different variegated color. I'll also block it as I go from row to row. I think that will make it easier to do the final blocking.

I forgot to post about these shorts when I finished them. I finished them at the beginning of June. I wore them at this month's Tat and Chat.

At the machine embroidery workshop today, we made a cell phone charger station. The grommet is plastic so I don't have to worry about getting electrocuted. I probably won't use it for that purpose. I'm not sure what I'm going to use if for yet.

At this month's machine embroidery workshop we made a clear vinyl bag. It was done completely in the machine. It's 5" x 9-1/2". Basically the size of a pencil case.
I still have to pop out the top corners. It was easy to do and didn't take very long to make. I'll have to resize the bag in my software so I can make it on my machine. I'm pleased with it.

When I was in Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I noticed this yarn called Red Heart Scrubby. I bought a skein to try. It has a rubbery plastic feel to it. I held together 1 thread of Scrubby in color Ocean and 1 thread of Crafter's Secret Cotton in brown variegated. I used size 8 knitting needles and it finished at 5". It only took a few hours. It's very stretchy. I like my scrubbies to be smaller so I want to make another one that finishes at about 3". I may also use a smaller size needle so it's more solid.
