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 21

Maple leaf - Take 2

I enjoyed doing Tammy Rodgers' maple leaf so much (mainly because there were no joins....) that I chose this same pattern to be my practice piece for finer thread. Yes, that's right, I've reached the stage of using size 80 thread!
The finer thread does not photograph as nicely as the thicker thread, but it looks so much nicer in the flesh. Must admit though, unpicking it and opening the ring was not an enjoyable task.

Happy dance

Woo-hoo, today the postman delivered the books that were sent by Georgia Sietz!

Some of people celebrate Christmas in July, but I'm experiencing Christmas in February :)

I am now the proud owner of:
  • Advanced tatting patterns by Judi Banashek
  • Tattaed fashion by Teiko Fujito (translated)
  • Tea is for tatting, by Martha Ess, and
  • Tree of life by Karey Solomon
Now to finish some UFOs to free up a few shuttles......
