Donation Ornaments

Finally! Picture -taking not being my forte, it took me a while to get out the camera and snap a photo of these ornaments.
(Okay, shoot off about a dozen in hopes one of them would come out unblurry)
This is another attempt at items to be donated for the Festival of Trees. The thread is right (size 20 ecru Flora); the ornaments are the question. I have no idea if this is the right color. Maroon is such a subjective color, don't you think? At any rate, I'll trot these out for the July meeting (because the June meeting is this Saturday and I'll be on vacation -- wheeee!). Somebody will either say they are the right color or they won't. It doesn't matter, because I can always find a home for ornaments! These are both covered in my own split ring pattern. I've got it written down somewhere, but it needs diagrams. Thanks to Sharon Briggs' Design-Tat course, I now know how to do that -- and will once I dig my Roundtuit out from under everything. :)

The ornaments look great! Hope they work for the Tree, but as you say, friends and family would just love to have one. Have fun on your vacation.

Marty,
These are beautiful! As are all your ornaments.
Regarding the maroon, Karen Lowrimore, President of Palmetto Tatters, did a set of ornaments in maroon with gold tatting last year. They were snapped up right away at the Craft Fair where they were being sold.
So, no need to worry about the color. They are gorgeous.
By the way, love your designs on the Design-Tat course.

Hey, Marty, I saw your comment at Yarnplayer's blog about the watch face. I couldn't leave a comment over there, but I wanted to let you know that there's a great selection of watch faces at www.artbeads.com. I have no connection with them, other than having had a good experience as a customer. I've thought about tatted watches, too, but I've got so many other projects going, and I'm also looking for that roundtuit!

The colour is perfect.
