Tatting Updates......

I have still been working on my tattting.  I am just not as quick and can't sit still for a long period of time to work on stuff. I wanted to share of the recent things that I have completed.

This first one is a free pattern that I got from Be-Stitched.  It was a great ring and chain pattern for me and really easy.

I used this one as a handmade item for my Afghan Swap that I am in.  My swap partner just loved it. 

Its not 100 % correct but hey what can you say for the first go round for the pattern.  I am very happy with the way it turned out. 

Several months back I saw a pattern that Anika had made and she was so kind to share her pattern.  The first round was a sinch.  Then came the second row and I ran into which thread to I attach it to the ball or the shuttle.  I got to thinking to myself gosh I have A LOT of learning to do still.  I did notice that I added an extra picot to the one ring but heck I'll use that to attach the thread to and hang it on the tree!  :)  No worries what so ever.  Please be nice when you see the finished work......


  1. Your blue motif from Anika is great!

  2. Both look good. Who wouldn't be happy to receive such a pretty motif? If you hadn't told me you added an extra picot to the blue motif, I'm not sure I would have noticed. If you had added the hanging thread I would have thought it was meant to be there.
