Gift Ornaments Eleven

These had to be called "Eleven" together, because they are made on satin-covered plastic ornaments only one-inch in diameter. Because the ornament is hard plastic I couldn't use pins to hold the tatting in place. These are laced on with metallic green thread (the only use I found for this particular thread -- it split, frayed, knotted and broke when I tried tatting with it). The red one on the left is an adaptation of Mary Kohinor's Spinning Wheel Glass Mat. I have no idea where the one on the right comes from -- I copied it off an old mini-ornament. These went to a friend of my sister's to decorate a mini-tree. It seemed appropriate.
