Well, I just didn't have enough Christmas tatting to fill up the tree, so I added my crocheted stockings yesterday. I don't see myself getting enough tatting done before Christmas, so I had to compromise, but I think it looks pretty. I made a picture of the stockings before I put them on the tree so they would be easy to see. I found the pattern yesterday if anyone is interested. It came out of a magazine back in the 70's. I don't remember which one, but I still have it some where!
By the way, the three stockings on the top right have some of my hand spun thread incorporated into them. The fleece is virgin wool from a lamb in Suffolk County, England that I picked out on a farm up the lane from where I lived at that time. It was so neat to see the lamb shorn and then spin the wool. I still have a sweater that I knitted from the yarn.
DH is so tired to watching me tat snowflakes and hearing about them, I'm going to have to start tatting in secret. Humm, switch from sneak eating to sneak tatting! That might be a new diet craze!
