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.

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' :)

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..........
