Next is a closeup of the tatted ornament I made. It once had dried white german statice flowers and the dried roses were once much pinker. It is over 15 years old now so over time the white flowers have crumbled off and the dried roses have lost their color, but the tatting is just as vibrant and strong as it was when I tatted it. I made 12 of them to sell as Christmas ornaments at a Christmas boutique the year they were made. All of them sold except for three. So, two were given as gifts and I kept this one. I don't give a lot of tatting away nor have I sold before or since.
This one has graduated from Christmas ornament to permanent lamp ornament. I don't care how old and faded the flowers are, the tatting is what I love about it.
Thank you for letting me share some of my tatting around my house with you. This concludes my 3 part series of "TattingChic Around the House". Thanks for reading!
