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.

Pear tree

This tree started out as a lemon tree, but my family assure me that it looks more like a pear tree. So.....a pear tree it is!!

The tree is now mounted as the centre piece of a wall hanging that I have made. Shall post other pictures later.

The leaves were designed by Ruth Scharf and the fruit is from Karey Solomon's book Tree of Life . The trunk and branches were designed by me...my first design :)


  1. Very pretty! I like the way you have arranged the branches and the leaves are very finely made.

  2. ...wow... wonderful tree!

  3. Very nicely done! I'm not sure I could tell the difference between a lemon tree and a pear tree, but I guess it doesn't really matter... it's beautiful!

  4. You've done a great job. Very nice design. I really like the way the limbs get more delicate as you near the leaves and the variety in sizes of the leaves.

  5. Wow, that's fantastic! Trees are tricky but that turns out great. The pears are a great touch.

  6. Vanessa, this is amazing! Congrats!
    Fox : )

  7. What a fabulous tree!!! :)

  8. Truly stunning work! This magnificent tree needs a partridge. (Now you'll have that holiday song stuck in your head.)

  9. Fantastic looking tree!
