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 25

My 25th Motif consists of two smaller motifs combined to make a necklace.

The larger flower is from Teiko Fujito's book Tatted Fashion, whilst the smaller flowers are from Rebecca Jone's book The Complete Book of Tatting.

The chain was made from repeating a half stitch in the same way that a Josephone knot is made (without the knot aspect of course).


  1. Very nice! You may have inspired me to make one.....

  2. I love it. I am having trouble with the chain. Did you shuttle or needle tat? I am just starting to try Needle tatting (been shuttle tatting for about 5 years) and my spiral ends up being VERY close together.

  3. Hi all

    Thanks for your lovely comments.

    Coretta, it was done via a shuttle (I've never tried needle tatting). The chain was very easy to do and sits better than if it was made via a double stitch.

    I'm happy to give further directions if you wanted to email me directly on vanessagoss@hotmail.com

    Kind regards
