Finally........got something to say!

or even a few somethings LOL.

I have some tatting to show & a shameful plug as well - but to start off.....


Has anyone seen this? - truly hilarious but WARNING it is NOT for the easily offended


Now let's move on to tatting - you'll have to excuse the lack of blocking & finished ends but just thought it was about time I said something!

First on the list is Miranda's "Crazy Daisy" (see here) which I loved doing & even learnt to do daisy picots without any hassle! Can't find the image just now but will post ASAP. Thank you SO much Miranda for your wonderful patterns.

Next came the Valentine bookmark from here
done in a Floretta thread

Then I decided to try some patterns from my more obscure books & booklets - so from this booklet


came this with a couple of minor adaptations to modern tatting methods

in Lizbeth Juicy Watermelon

Then came this

in Lizbeth Spring Garden

from this Russian book



By now I was on a roll so we moved to this German booklet



for this
again in Lizbeth but now Spring Flower

And finally I am in this process of doing one from my Mum's booklet



but as I haven't finished it you'll have to wait.........

I also made a pair of Yarnplayers Quadrille earrings which I modified slightly but don't have a picture as they were a pressie that got given before I thought to take a snap.

Now on to the shameless plug - I currently have a couple of shuttles & some patterns on eBay if anyone is interested - here in a link for one of them

Hope it won't be so long next time

TTFN

Well, I guess we know why you haven't been blogging-- you've been too busy tatting! I'm glad you were able to do the "Crazy Daisy". I was worried the directions might be incomprehensible.

All those books look so interesting!

Love the doilies in your Semeco Booklet. It looks very pretty on the cover. Wish I had known about you selling the English Aero shuttles...I probably would have tried to buy it. They are my favorite shuttles to tat with.

Just remembered to check out the video - love it! I'm going to have to share that with friends.
