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 24

This flower was derived from a pattern by Ruth Scharf.

It was a pleasure to tat, particularly as the flower uses continuous thread. No cutting and sewing/tying in ends at the end of each row, hooray!

A great pattern to tat whilst watching television.


  1. So sweet! I like the colour of the thread that you used.

  2. A beautiful design, pretty color and the tatting is exqusite!

  3. wow...very pretty...nice color

  4. Very pretty! I love designs that don't require cutting and tying!

  5. Love the colour and what a pretty motif!

  6. This is a very sweet flower - a delightful pattern and very nicely done in a lovely color.

    I've been 'catching up' on your blog, and I'd have to say you're way past beginner stage! I'm amazed at how many techniques you've mastered in one year, and you've also ventured into 3-Dimensional tatting, with sweet flowers of different types, including, of course, those amazing daffodils! You even did the TIAS rooster! I can't tat something unless I see it!

    I don't believe you've mentioned exactly how you got interested in tatting and how you found the 'lady' who taught you.

    I'm also quite envious (in reading your first posts) at your super-tidy living room! I'd have to do quite a bit of 'redding up' to show a photo of my tatting space in my living room, not to mention all the rooms where my tatting is scattered about. (Right now a lot of it is in the trunk of the car, as we prepare for another event this weekend in Western PA!)

    And here you are, just about completing the First Round of the 25-Motif Challenge! Good for you! I hope you continue!
