Tatted butterfly

I have been tatting the most elaborate and beautiful tatted butterfly I have seen so far. It is done in only one shuttle and is pretty easy yet pretty. The pattern and instructions are posted here.

 Its good to use up the threads that are left on your shuttles...I will make more with my left over threads over the this butterfly!

Five Petal Pendant

For the last week I was working on a pendant from Yarnplayer's Up and Tat'Em book. This is the very first pattern in the book which I told you I skipped it cause I couldn't figure out how I should do it according to her instructions.

Then I came back to it determined to tat it! This pattern has a self closing mock ring which I had no idea what it is. Fortunately I found a very useful video on YouTube that demonstrated this technique ...Here is the vedio for those of you who might be new to this:

and the rest went smoothly according to instructions. I have not yet chosen a chain/ band for it. I think it makes a very beautiful pendant. Would like to tat different colors of this later.
