There were only cards hung up in our home this Christmas, no tree and no other decorations, sounds miserable but as we were completely by ourselves with no guests or visitors it just did not seem worth the effort. However, I continue to tat items that can be hung up at Christmas so that other people will enjoy them in their homes. The break also gave me an opportunity to tidy up some of my craft stuff amongst which were bangles purchased 5 years ago. This is what I have used some of them for, there are dozens more! The angels are from Martha Ess's book 'Playing with picots'
I used to attach the tatting to the rings with invisible cotton, but this time thought I would try a different method and rather like the effect of twisting the thread around the rings.
Which ever method is used though it is a fiddly process.
Even though my home had no decorations I did hang some mistletoe in the parish office,
well just in case!
In my next blog post there will be a give-away to celebrate the New Year.
