Tatting Tea Tuesday - Pink Cocoa & DIY Daleks

Starting off Tatting Tea Tuesday by finishing my second (IMHO adorable) horse on a paperclip.

Thread: Lizbeth® 20 Pink Cocoa #166
Tatted by Is'Dihara

Why did I stop so close to the end?  Some sorting out was required.  My threads are facing the wrong way to continue making the second through fourth joins to the paperclip.  If I pressed on I would end up with twisted stitches. 

As for the rest of Tatting Tea Tuesday, it is time to make the Daleks! (With the requisite tea and chocolate covered pretzels, of course.)

Crafty felt Dalek project in progress

I found a tutorial on Craftster for three-inch (7.62 cm) felt Dalek badges and decided that it was a moral imperative to make holiday Dalek ornaments.

Armed with my faithful purple X-acto blade, a steaming cuppa and a tub of treats, I'm ready.

Wishing you all blissful me time to create something beautiful. See you next Tuesday for more communi-tea!

Ooo, Daleks! So, are you going to have a TARDIS ornament as well?
Love the Tea-for-One teapot. Very cute.

One of my future projects - oh yes one day!! Is to tat over paper clips, this little fellow is just right. Chocolate pretzels, don't think I've seen them over here but have read (whilst waiting for the dentist) that for Christmas you can dip the plain ones in chocolate. Hope you are going to show us your finished Daleks, just going over to see the site
