I tatted this pumpkin using thread from 1970s which was just "lying around". In fact, I chose this thread as part of a challenge and then Ruth Perry kindly provided me with the pattern and thought they would be the perfect combination.

Here are two examples of small tatted motifs; the first is a beaded tatted dragon which I completed as part of a tatting challenge, and the other is a very quick motif which I could have made larger by continuing with the rings and chains (but decided against it, only because there are a lot more tatted patterns I want to complete).

Hedre is a stunning handmade Goddess tatting shuttle I received from Noreen http://www.crone-findlay.com/Crone-Findlay-Creations-Tatting.html She is extremely clever, making different types of shuttles including dragons, however the Goddess caught my eye.

Dug out my Prismacolors today and did a little more on my Cat colour pencil drawing. All in all, it should have around 30-50 layers by the time of completion (which is a way away). It's a slow process, a WIP (work in progress).
I mainly use watercolour in art as I love the "free" nature of the WC, however for something a little more intense color pencils are the right medium for me.

I participated in the Ravelry She-Knits KAL and here is the finished product - a very thick, felted bag with pockets on the outside (and inside). I love the colours, the wool felted superbly (Rustic from Bendigo Woollen Mills).
