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.

This pattern was designed by Mary Konior and is from her book Tatting with visual patterns. Yellow seems to be a pretty colour for a hanky.

This doily was designed by Teiko Fujito, from her book Tatted fashion, and tatted in Altin Basak size 30.

Hmmm... now to find a piece of furniture that would do justice to a blue and white doily.....

It didn't take long to decide which pattern to use for the recent bookmark exchange. It's pretty hard to go past Jane Eborall's flowery bookmark.....

Winter has hit hard, hence the need to tat some mittens (IMHO).

This mitten was designed by Martha Ess and is from her book Holidays on the Block

I am one of the priveleged tatters that owns a Jan Stawasz book. Hoorah!!

This necklace was taken from his book 'Tatting theory and patterns'

I wasn't sure which length to make the necklace, so I used a clasp on both ends. That way I can just clip it onto whichever loop was the most appropriate for the outfit that I wear on any given day.

I haven't done much bead work before. It is a bit more fiddly than normal tatting, but seems to add a nice touch.

Forever Young

What a beautiful name Teri Dusenbury gave this doily - 'Forever Young'. She's very clever and creative in her ability to insert a variety of shapes within a small round doily.

This one was tatted in size 20 Coats Mercer cotton.

TIAS day 12

Well, the TIAS turned out to be a goat. A blue and green one at that!

I had always wondered what it would be like to tat with a variety of threads of differing thicknesses all in the one item. This was not the ideal item to experiment with this idea :(

Part-way through the project it became apparent that one shuttle had been loaded with blue size 30 and the second shuttle had been loaded with green size 20. So much for using up leftover threads!!!

Anyway, here is the poor lopsided green and blue goat :)
