Dragons! and Candy

How not to tat your Dragon! Exhibit A! Misreading the pattern late at night and mixing your R's or rings up for Ch, or chains. I was so excited when I found this pattern. It's called the Minor Flaying Norwegian Dragon by Anne Buvold and can be found here. It was a good start I plan on attempting this one at more reasonable hour than 3 in the morning. If you have problems if split rings Totusmel has an excellent video explaining how to do them on a needle you check that out here. I'm still very much so a tatting novice. But learning is fun the part! I will conquer the Dragon pattern. The Intatters forum is pretty awesome too.

I have a Project Candy update today! The pieces are dripping with crystals and glazed. Next step for the earrings is assembly. I Also made some strawberry charms I might use those for earrings. These earrings will be extra sweet
But I also want to make something very Victorian and lacy to cover
both styles. This coming week I will be starting on pink sculpted roses maybe even a red rose.

I'm not ready to show my mask concept sketch yet! The sketch is not ready yet. As much as I would like to share it. I did yard work today, went shopping. Spent time with my husband and my puppy. It was nice a Saturday. Tomorrow I plan on hitting the beach for sun, fun and fishing! I also started putting a tutorial together for my string art earrings I look forward to posting that here for everyone soon. Till then!

See ya soon,
