Is it Spring yet?

Usually I am ok with Winter but this year I've found myself wishing for Spring more than I ever have in my life! I'm sitting here in a full wool sweater with many layers beneath and wearing a real honest to goodness pair of shear ling slippers and I am still cold! I guess it could be worse I could be sweating to death (yeah that's coming in the summer!lol).
So to help me get through this cold I've been tatting a flurry of earrings to keep my hands moving and warm.
All threads are Lizbeth size 20. Colors used: Caribbean Blue, Navy, Spring Garden and Olive.
The Spring Garden, Navy and Olive pairs are my own design. The Caribbean Blue pair is a pattern I have had for years but I don't remember where I found it. I've made my own tweaks to it over the years and it seems to work well as an earring pattern. I used to make several and connect them together to make a necklace. Maybe that will be next. Stay warm everybody! Only a couple more months of cold!

You're tatted earrings are all very nice. Especially the celtic ones. I like how you put the diamond bead on the black one.
