Ha-ha! Just teasing. They're not celtic at all but aren't they adorable? They were waiting for two young ladies this morning. The motif is from Tattrldy (Wanda) and you can find the pattern here.
And I wanted to put up another picture of the Oliver Twists thread crosses. Here is some natural daylight pictures and you can really see the colors. It's tiny thread but smmmmoooooooth! Thank you again Diane- it really was a treat!
And lastly here is a modified version of the Green Knots pattern available at inTatters. The variation isn't my idea but someone from inTatters. I ordered the most wonderful celtic shuttles from Patty D here and gave this pattern a second try. I did make it last year in a beautiful deep purple and my daughter promptly snapped it up and then lost it! So no proof that I made it. : ) Last time, I got the lacing correct but since I'm a shuttle tatter, I had to unwind the works, pass the thread through and then rewind for each of the celtic rings. This time was much easier. But I was over-confident and didn't do as good a job. I think the celtic part on the left is correct but don't even look at the one on the right! I'll probably give it another try but ...
the Quatrain is calling my name these days!
Blessings to all and Happy Easter!
