It's a long drop for the goslings.
This is my first attempt at Mary Konior's glass mat, in her book Tatting with Visual Patterns. It was a challenge for me. First problem, I just used some cheap white thread, not singed. And it even had a thick spot. Every time I had to undo a ring, it broke. And I made lots of errors in the pattern. It requires good concentration. But, please don't be discouraged, if you want to make it. I'm on muscle relaxers for my back and I always watch TV when I tat. All that, and I can't wait to make
Hello Neall. It's very nice to meet you. I am from Olds, Ab. and have been frequenting this "In-Tatters" for about a year and a half. I have watched for fellow Canadians to chat with. So, this is really special, to have someone as close as Red Deer.
I hope you enjoy this site and will chat with me from time to time. You can use the Private Message site, if you like. I am in Red Deer once in a while. How fun it would be to see pictures of your work and get to know you some. I don't
This is Regal Heart from Teri Dusenbury's book. It's not precisely as her instructions are written. I'm a flip and chain kinda gal. This heart is slated for another cap.
This bookmark was named for Jane Eborall and Jane McLellan. It's an adaption and modernization of a braid pattern from Anna Burda. I really enjoyed making the pattern. I've already started another one. The tail is all split rings and a little medallion.
This little guy is from the book The Gentle Art of Tatting by Patricia Ann Rizzo, The thread is Lizbeth #20. purple splendor. And med leaf green.
My latest spiral book mark. I tried making an onion ring for the flower on the end. Awkward. Hey, it looks like a caterpillar.
Well, this is it. I can no longer be trusted to have to remember anything. Yesterday was hot, for Alberta. 80 F. That's 30 C. My husband (finally) installed the air conditioner. So, I decided to get out the old Magic Bullet and make some smoothies. I've never made them before. We live in an old trailer and my things are here and there, so as to make some space for our daughter. She's moved back in and I've made some cupboard space for her. So, her brothers room, that is vacant, has become storage

I made this one after seeing Janet Smith's pretty blue butterfly.
I liked the colors.
Designed by Birigit and the pattern was written by Beelizabeth. The thread is Lizbeth "Girly Girl"
Jane Eborall gave me this site to learn the split chain. It is the best. I've watched it several times and my first tries were a little messy. But you soon learn that you want to keep the ds over to the left. And you leave the first half a little loose. Then you pull the second half to tighten the first then pull the shuttle to tighten the second half.
The next row is going to be a heart. I'll show it again when I'm finished.
Here's the site for Maire Smith's instruction on the easiest
