Yes I have been tatting!!!

Yes, I have been tatting - in the evenings while the web stuff was going on in the daytime.  

This is a pair of earwigs that I made the other evening.  It's this pattern but the outer part only.  Can you see how I've added beads to the picot coming through the button's hole?  I LOVE doing this!!!  It's a tad fiddly but well worth the sparkle it gives to a plain button.

Lovely! I can always expect pleasant surprises in your tatting. :)

Lovely! I wish I could learn how to use buttons in tatting! I´ve tried to understand, but it was to hard for me!

Cute! :)

Oh, Sara, you just treat the holes in a button as if they're picots. Same join. I wish you success.

these are lovely.
you just keep stepping up and making the grading curve steeper.
p.s. you fixed your blog... I don't have to scroll to the right to see all of it. Thanks

You have a new header! Excellent! Can't even imagine how you did that!

And the beads on the buttons are a great idea. I also refreshed my memory on how to attach the double jump rings, on your Tips and Techniques page.

It seems that everything has successfully transferred over to the new site! If I had been away for the past two weeks I would never have realized this 'crisis' occurred for you (and us!). Amazing!

Stunning earrings! I like the way the beads enhance the button. I was going to say disguise, but that sounds too negative!

Not negative - honest, Jane!!!!
