Gems and Mint =D

So long story short, there was a little issue with my internet, but now I'm back!

Remember Gemmy Bear?
Well... apparently the pricking was too small, and that's like.... kind of important--so I had to redo it.
It wasn't too bad, I used the technique seen here, which actually worked--so yay! =D
 Gemmy, before and after --> not tooo big of a difference. 
(forgive the dark picture, I'm trying to figure out how to get my camera to cooperate)

Allllllso, the woman from my church who asked for Anna's Doily wants it soon, but since I have to go to the airport today to pick up a friend, I can't deliver it until next Sunday. Anywho, my point is that I was scrambling to finish the pattern before I had to give away the doily--and I sort of did, but not before I tatted the first round again, thinking it might go faster... 
It didn't. 
Buuuuut, I did have a base for a new doily!
Meet Minty Fresh, aka, Minty: 
=D I like the way it came out. It's fun to just randomly tat stuff and get a cool design out of it =D

NanaRama Round 4!... sorta

So I haven't posted in a few days mostly because I haven't been tatting much thanks to a small outbreak of dishydrotic eczema =( (yipee for zinc oxide!!!) but now it's mostly better and I finished a round on NanaRama!

I have to redo it though =/ since I messed up the stitch count and kept editing it as I went through the round.

Gemmy Bear?

Does that name sound alright? Because of the "jewel" shaped parts of the pattern, I kept thinking of jewelry for some reason, but the word "jewel" really annoys me, so I went for "Gem" instead. 
But Gem what? 
I played around with some names, and eventually got to "Gemmy", rhymes with "Gummy" --> hence "Gemmy Bear" 
No idea if that makes sense... but yeah =)
(please forgive the dark picture, the camera on my phone still refuses to take decent pictures in: artificial light, direct sunlight, anything that annoys it)

I drew this bad boy up while I was watching Grey's Anatomy. It was supposed to be a practice for a gimp, but I figured it didn't make a difference if there was more stuff in there besides the gimp so I just added a few things to make it more fun =)
Now I just hope I don't screw it up!

Wiggles done!

Oh yes indeedy, Mr. Wiggleford is 

I'm happy to announce that my technique has improved, but it still needs some work for sure =D

 But, if you ask me, I don't think I did half bad. 

Now you can finally see what I was talking about when I said that it was actually a dark purple. I had to find some bright, indirect sunlight for the poor little camera on my phone to be able to catch the color just right.
