About Me

Hi. I live in Canberra, Australia, and started tatting early in 2009. Consequently, I've now caught the 'tatting bug' and hope to be infected for a long while.

Motif 15

What a blessing are these tatters who design flowers for the rest of us to use!

This latest piece, a pansy, is another one from Toni Storer's book Tatting down the garden path and has been tatted in Altin Basak size 30.

The pansy consists of several small pieces of tatting which have been joined together. It was a great way to use all of those small leftover bits of thread on the shuttle! Unfortunately though, it was left as a UFO for a while because I don't like having to 'join the pieces'.


  1. What a pretty pansy! I'm visiting my mom in Alabama, and there are pansies everywhere!

  2. Oh, that is absolutely lovely! Why have I not heard of this book before? Maybe I have...you know some books or patterns I don't give a second thought to. Then I see it tatted up on someone's blog and it gives me a whole new perspective...usually an inspired one! LOL! Thanks, I think you've just inspired me!

  3. Very nice! It has a pretty effect all put together. Thank you for finishing it for us!

  4. Very nice pansy! I love this flower.
