Practicing my joins and picots :) was very happy I was able to close with no issues!
need to practice my joins more, I know they can be better and I'm getting better with hiding the gap between the chain and new ring :)
I appreciate that you'll probably get sick of my blogs real soon given that nothing thus far is absolutely fabulous, but I want to keep a record of my progress and learning as I think it's important to remember your grass roots.
Today marks a milestone, I created something with a shuttle. Albeit small...It came from many hours practicing and with the help of some very wonderful people, one in particular.
I am able to look at this piece and give myself a pat on the back
A big thank you to Judith for helping me out! It was a pleasure talking to her and I'm much clearer now on how to progress!
I'm looking forward to a long friendship of sharing a love and what seems to becoming passionate about tatting!
Well, I bought a shuttle yesterday, thinking that I could pick that up as easy as I did the needle.
Unfortunately for me, no I haven't...I am not able to get my left hand to work, not am I able to 'flip' or 'pop' the stitch over. Honestly it's driving me mad!
I think you tube isn't going to help me this time, so I will wait till next month and head over to the library to meet with the lovely Brisbane tatters.
I will also book myself into a short course in

Well today is day 9 of my tatting journey and I'm very pleased with how quickly I've progressed.
after trying my little heart out on totus mel's sleeve bracelet and getting myself in a twist I gave up reading the pattern and looked at her picture and succeeded in replicating...yes there are a couple of picots unjoined but over all I have good reason to be proud!
It has been a while since I have been on. I have been busy with being sick and looking after my son and partner who have been sick too. I also have been designing something new with my tatting. I came up with the pattern after looking at some beautiful Gothic architecture. And here it is. My Gothic Quatrefoil pattern.
Also I have been playing around with tatting round rings.
Finished at last. This doily was so big I had to photograph it on the carpet!
I think the colour bands work extremely well with this design.
I shall edit the pattern when I get a chance and put the PDF here in my free pattern section.
Here is my latest blog post link, Making Anne B's Dragons. Link to her pattern on the blog.
Also getting closer to 150 likers on the facebook page...links on the blog page (to the right) if you would like to be involved in the next giveaway.
I've been tatting for 2 months mostly learned from the Internet and YouTube with a little help from a friend. I love the designers on these web sites. I'm very excited to be a part of this site.
I would love to find the old Areo England shuttle or 2
3. COMPOSITE RINGS
3.4 The Takeda single-shuttle split ring (2000)
Michael Takeda's composite ring is also based on a the scallop shape. Like the double shuttle split ring (3.1), a first section is tatted and then the remaining space is covered with an insertion of finger-tatting using a looped double thread from the shuttle. The loop itself closes the ring, but then must be anchored so that the ring remains closed and tensioned. This produces
I need to pinch myself! I am here in Denver and today we go sightseeing. There is a miniature doll and toy museum on the list, the Colorado State Capitol Building, a visit to the Hobby Lobby and who knows what else might turn up.
Dear husband snuck a card congratulating me into my suitcase without my knowing it! What a sweetie.
I am very much enjoying the weather and the mountain clouds. The last time I was here I got altitude sickness (Denver altitude is one mile high),
Just started the last round - which is the same scallop round as before. Will post a picture when it is all done. Done in Aida size 20 the large doily will measure about 17 inches in diameter.
It's a long drop for the goslings.
Oh my! This is it. Thursday I fly to Denver, with one of my best girlfriends for company! We will be there from Thursday to Sunday with straight through flights for short travel time.
I am practically delirious. According to the information I got, my Hyperbolic samples are "prominently displayed".
Come on Thursday!
