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.


  1. Lovely! I really enjoy tatting this pattern - it looks good in any colour!

    I tatted a blue one last year, for my SIL, as a hockey joke - the blue leaf is, of course, the logo for the Toronto Maple Leafs!
    Fox : )

  2. That is such a beautiful piece!
