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.

Something blue

Aren't there some beautiful patterns around!!

This particular pretty pattern is called Maids of Honour and is from Mary Konior's book Tatting with Visual Patterns. It has been tatted in variegated blue DMC size 80.

I made it for a friend as a wedding handerchief - she now has 'something blue' :)


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Your tatting seems to echo the embroidered motif. Excellent!

  2. This is stunning, not only is the color beautiful but your tatting is remarkable as well. Gorgeous work!

  3. You did a wonderful job with Maids of Honour! This is so very lovely.

  4. So delicate! So beautiful! What a lucky friend to receive this stunning piece of lace as a bridal heirloom.

  5. To echo the comments above, this is stunning! First there's the size 80 thread, which I don't think I've ever seen in the blue variegated. Then there's the perfection of the tatting - and that particular pattern, one of my favorites. You'e also done the corners perfectly, and attached it perfectly. I am so impressed that you learned to tat just two years ago!

  6. Wow! I'm impressed. I have justs finished tatting this pattern but in coats mercer crochet no. 30. Yours is so much finer. I also still need to attach mine to a hanky. Lucky friend.

  7. Hi I love what you are doing and I liked the daffodils that you did from the Tatting down the Garden Path book. I would love a copy of this book. Do you know were I can buy a copy.
