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 15

What a blessing are these tatters who design flowers for the rest of us to use!

This latest piece, a pansy, is another one from Toni Storer's book Tatting down the garden path and has been tatted in Altin Basak size 30.

The pansy consists of several small pieces of tatting which have been joined together. It was a great way to use all of those small leftover bits of thread on the shuttle! Unfortunately though, it was left as a UFO for a while because I don't like having to 'join the pieces'.

Motif 14

At last, some more motifs to put online! I scanned my last few motifs in the hope of uploading them to the site. But alas, they scanned in PDF instead of as a jpeg and I had already given them away before realising that PDF files can't be uploaded to this site :(

This Maple leaf (designed by Tammy Rogers) has been tatted on Altin Basak size 10. It was another one of those designs that was a pleasure to tat.

Motif 13

This butterfly was another creation from Rebecca Jone's book The complete book of tatting.

I prefer the way that this butterfly looks rather than the previous one that I made (Motif 6) despite that fact that Motif 6 looks better in the photograph. Perhaps it is because it holds its shape well without requiring support.

Oh to be photographic!
