Merry Christmas tatting

It is again time for Christmas tatting for most of us. Luckily I was able to do mine in November so there were 25-30 pieces to give to workmates and friends who "deserved" a little something, ;-)
I tried doing Anne B's heart but it did not work as supposed to so I did a small variation and I think it works just fine. Thank you Anne for the free pattern.
I hope all who follows my blog and writes here will have a Merry Christmas filled with lots of warmth and fullfilled wishes. For the second year in a row - which is a record really - it will be a white Christmas here in my country. It is sooo freezing cold and lots of snow so far and more to come tonight so I am glad I do not have to travel for Christmas. I only have to go to work tomorrow, roflol.

Ingas doily

I am still around - at least a little bit - despite the silence for more than a month.
Below is a doily I did some weeks ago. Thread is a combination of Aida and a Lizbeth, both in size 20. Not the best colours I have chosen though, the original was done in a green and a blue and looks better than this. But that can happen when you choose colours, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't but you really don't know till the work is done.

It is designed by Inga Madsen whom I visited for some days in September.
She is such a great designer and a great person too. She shared some other stuff which will appear here as time permits. She even gave me a copy of her book "Fairytales in Tatting".
