Too late or too early?

Today it's time for Day 2 of the TIAS - see link above on this blog or the TIAS blog.

I can never get it right.  I'm usually too early for everything especially appointments.  I hate to keep people waiting.  Sometimes (like Christmas and other events) I almost miss them!!!

I was 'blog browsing' just after Christmas and saw this type of decoration on somebody's tree.  For some reason that set me off on another 'tangent'.

Here is what resulted from a couple of day's work.  So am I too late for 2011 or too early for 2012!!!!  Whatever the answer is I'm definitely early on getting the pattern done too!!!  Expect more and similar sooooon!!!

  4. As I was saying on Sally's blog just the other day, Christmas lasts until February 2nd - so you're right on time. What a fabulous ornament.

  5. I love this little tree and have already made one and intend to make more.

    As Maureen says Christmas is still very much evident in Church!

  8. Way Cool Jane! A Totally different tree. I really like the design of this.!

    A pattern is never late, nor is it early, it arrives precisely when it is meant to.

    Not exactly my quote, but it fits. THe original quote is from the Book/Movie Lord of the Rings "Gandalf: A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to”.

    Have a great day!

  13. Fabulous!! This is one of the most unique ideas I have ever seen -tatted ribbon candy! You must have been giddy when the idea flashed into your mind and then came flying off your shuttles, finished off with beads for the 'trunk' and a perfect ornament on top! Of course, that kind of inspiration is an everyday experience for you! And we get to benefit from it!

    It's never too early or late to do Christmas tatting!

    Oh my gosh - I love this design! Thank you for making the pattern available so early. Perhaps I can get myself organized to make a few for Christmas in 2012.

  21. Hi Jane! I'm commenting here because it appears you have added a new post today (Sat. Jan 14) about the shuttles you received from Sally, but it's not showing up as a new post. All kinds of goofy things are going on with Blogger right now!

  22. No idea what happened, Kathy. I've re-scheduled for Monday. I guess we can't complain because blogger is free.

  23. I tried to comment earlier but it was on my phone and apparently didn't go through.

    So, I wanted to say that I really like this design. It is not something I would probably be normally drawn to, but in the Christmas theme it really works. Maybe I'll make something like this for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing!

  24. I can't seem access the pattern from any of the links. Has it been moved?

  25. Leslie - please email me on lovetotat @ gmail.com and I'll send you a copy of this pattern. I took it down as I was teaching it at Palmetto Tat Days this last September but I'll get it back up soon.
