I played around with making tatted roses this weekend. It's from the Eternal Rose Cross pattern by Marilee Rockley. Although I never actually got around to making the cross (maybe next weekend), I love how the roses turned out. I made one in a variegated blue and turned it into a hair clip for my youngest son's girlfriend's birthday. I made some sets of red roses and white roses. I paired some up and glued them to earring posts. The remaining roses, including one that used the remainders of the red thread and the white thread, became a hair clip that I've decided to keep for myself. Pretty much every thing I've ever tatted has been sold or given as gifts over the years. When my mom passed away, it was kind of bittersweet to have one of my doilies back. I'm looking forward to wearing these little roses in my hair.
