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 19

Hoorah! I remembered to scan the tatting at last. Doing the actual tatting is always the fun part. It's the follow up work that throws me, such as scanning the motif so that the picture can be posted to the blog.

The following two motifs, 'the square and diamond motifs', were from Jane Eborall's site - . Quite appropriately named really.

The pattern suggests making several of these motifs and then joining them together to create a larger product. I didn't do this because I'm still at the stage of tatting smaller objects so that I can see what different patterns look like when they are finished.

These two patterns look really sweet. I also did the triangular pattern from the series, but did not scan it. My completed triangle could definitely not be considered 'sweet'. Poor Jane might reconsider sharing her patterns if she saw how badly I botched it :(


  1. I don't believe you!!! I'm sure the triangle wasn't bad at all. The triangle and square are FANTASTIC. I'm just flattered you took the time to try my patterns.

  2. You did a wonderful job!!!!! They look perfect and the colours are nive as well.

  3. What beautiful tatting and both pieces look wonderful..great job...well done
