Holiday Weekend Tatting


This weekend I finally got around to making the Spinning Wheel Glass Mat from Mary Konior's boo, Tatting with Visual Patterns. I've had it on my to try list for months. I used Lizbeth thread, color #122 (Caribbean). My 15 year-old daughter liked it so much that she picked up a shuttle and worked on her tatting a little bit, adding picots and joins to her skill base. Now she's ready to try some hen & chicks edging, the obligatory first project in our family tradition.

Beautiful! I also have this color, but haven't used it yet. Did you know this is one of my favorite patterns? : )

Your doily looks lovely, Joy! LOL! That's funny I saw how pretty the thread was and I was just placing an order to handy hands to get a couple of books and I just HAD to add that "caribbean", LOL! I had the order form up and everything...not that I NEED anymore thread because the Easter Bunny was really good to me this year. How nice that you had time to tat this weekend! :)

P.S. That is so neat that your 15 yr old picked up a shuttle and learned a bit more tatting! That is sweet that you have a "family tradition" with tatting! So sweet! :)

Happy Belated Easter to you and yours! :)

That looks fantastic! I definitely have to get that color now. I'm happy to see you have a new tatter in the family.
