Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, most of my classes yesterday were cancelled, so I actually had some tatting time.  So nice!
So, I did this:  (I did hear, do one in SeaGlass right?)
Originally, I was going to do another one of Jane's Button Brooches, but I like this button, and I didn't want to hide it, so I did something a little different. I love how the chains look all boxy.  This has not been blocked at all, so that's just how it turned out. I think it's the tube beads that's causing it.

Anyway THEN I found some abandoned motifs and put them on ornaments:

This Gold one, I just made up one.  I finished this one with a tassel. 

I took a seprate thread and fed it through the picots and tied to keep it secure.  I like it a lot!

I tatted this one last year, in Lizbeth's Blue Ice.

Anyway!  Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans!
Don't eat too too much!
If you go out shopping tomorrow, please be safe!
