Farm Show Entries

Here are the entries from this year (August). I didn't get the petal doily finished. I have a good start for next year. I can't remember the ribbons for these - I think maybe it was first place on the hanky and ornament and second on the earrings. The bib was second or third, I think. I had the only tatted entries again this year, but one of my students has a piece that she just finished, so I better bring my A game in 2013!

Step 2 Done

I'm working on "Pretty Petal Doily" from A Tatter's Treasure Chest for entry in the Farm Show in August.  Finishing the center was step 1.  Completing the 8 individual petals was step 2. The pattern calls for one more round of rings and chains on each petal to attach them all together - that will be step 3.

The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, colors 620 and 131.

Mother's Day

Happy Mom's Day, friends!  As a tribute to my mom, I'm posting a picture of some of her tatting.  She made miles and miles of hen & chicks edging for pillow cases over the years.  These butterflies (tatted by my mom) are from a pattern that came from my paternal grandmother's sample book.

It's about time!

I've been so busy with work and exploring other tatting ventures that I slowed down on the hankies. Tonight I finally finished one.

One More Finish for Today

Here's another design from Marilee Rockley's Tatted Jewelry; this time it's a pendant. These patterns are very clear and so much fun to work.

Hoppy Easter!

I received this picture as an e-mail this morning and thought it would make a great little ornament, so I printed it out on card stock and added the tatting. Egg coloring tonight, and we're ready for the bunny to come!


I know it's the wrong season and I will be working on some Spring-themed projects today, but I just had to try out my new thread (thanks, Annette!), and I needed a new bookmark. I love to re-purpose my holiday cards.

More Earrings

These are from the book Tatted Jewelry by Marilee Rockley. I used size 20 manuela thread.

I'm not in love with this thread (Oren Bayan, size 70). I am a tight tatter, and there were times that I though for sure the ring was not going to close.

More Earrings

This week is like a mini tatting class/seminar for me; I'm doing all kinds of new things. These earrings are my variation of the ones on Sharon's blog.

I love Spring Break!

Today I got the checkbook balanced, the laundry caught up, lunch and dinner made for the family, and these tattings done. Who knew I was wasting so much productive time at work? :)

This is my attempt at Martha Ess's Paprika the Dragon. Not my usual style, but it was fun.

Earrings #2

My daughter saw these in Rebecca Jones' Complete Book of Tatting and requested them. I remember requesting quilts, pillows, and knit items from my mother when I was around my daughter's age (18). It's nice to have traditions :)

It's too big for earrings. . .

. . . but it makes a nice little doo dad. It's a pattern from Bridgit's Tatting.


It's Spring Break and I think I've found my project for the week. Here is my first venture into tatted earrings. My daughter has visions of selling these on Etsy or at a local craft fair.
