About Me

My photo
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 16

Another addition to my flower collection! This pretty pink flower is based upon one from Ondori's Tatting lace book. It has been tatted in my new favourite thread...Altin Basak size 30.

The flower was made from a long (longish) strip of tatted lace that was then coiled around into a rozette. The book indicates that a bead is to be placed in the centre, but I prefer the mauve tatted alternative (not to mention the fact that I don't possess any suitable beads....)

The pattern was fun and easy to do, but it remained as a UFO until I could be bothered to coil it. It would still be a UFO if it was waiting for a centre bead!


  1. Very pretty! I'm not sure I'd have the patience for the coiled part!

  2. Your flower is sooooooo sweet with the little blue flower in the center. I think I like it better than the usual center.
