Happy Tatting Day!

'Celery' and 'Rhubarb Pie' in size 20. Pattern from 'Workbasket'
Hope everyone had a great day wearing tatting, eating chocolate and tatting! My friend Lindsey worked on a very new techniques with her. We had wonderful Dove chocolate and I taught her Teri Dusenbury's folded join(or not really folded) and the Catherine Wheel join.  Yarnplayer has a great video on the Catherine Join and Jane Eborall had a link to Teri's folded join. The  picture is a pair of earrings using Teri's method for doing the last ring without a twisted picot!
The black thing the earrings are on is my new magnifier. It has two magnifications and is wonderful for seeing those small stitches for sewing in ends. It was a Hobby Lobby  find and am sorry to say I use it a lot!
So Happy Tat Day and keep those shuttles and needles going!

Very nice earrings!

I'm anxious to see more patterns with that CW join. And sad to say, I could use that magnifier too :)

Very pretty earrings, I like the way you planned the colors. Beautiful threads!! I have an angel that joins and having problems so I will check out Terri's way. Love my shuttles and tat with every day...
