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.

3-D rose

Last month I had the pleasure of spending a day with the Queensland Tatters. They were a warm and welcoming group and I really enjoyed myself :) Thanks ladies!!

Judith Connors helped us to tat this 3-D rose that was designed by Jeanne Lugert.

I had tatted it before but it didn't 'sit' right. Judith showed us how to curl the flower so that the centre sits exactly where it is meant to sit. It's so much easier when someone shows you how to do things!

The pattern is meant to have a tatted leaf with it. However, my rose is currently sitting as a decoration on a gift box for a friend. Some of us just need to be different..........


  1. It's lovely- I like your colors! I've made about 20 of these and like you, use them to decorate without the leaves.

  2. I love making this rose too. Yours is perfect!

  3. Hi, Vanessa!
    It is so pretty! I must try one of these - yours is very inspiring.
