Been busy , I got sidetracked,on the snowflakes, and am making a black split ring necklace with a a tatted focal I will write more k from one of my favorite books,"Tatting from burda" It's been translated from German by Etha Schuette. It's put out by Lacis Publications. The pictures are amazing, but although I feel that some instructions were lost in translation.the diagrams seem accurate.
I will write more later, right now I need to tat.
Hello. I'm not sure if this is the place to post my question. I have been a member for a long time but just haven't had or taken the time to peruse Intatters! Shame on me! Anyway, I was looking for cross patterns and came across a post on Facebook in the "Tatting" group that referenced the following link to InTatters:
When I try to go to this link, it tells me that I do not have permissions. Can anyone tell me why I get
My sister, emailed me and asked for some tatted snowflakes for her Christmas tree. The word got around the nursing home that I was tatting snowflakes, so now all the nurses want snowflakes. Most of the patterns I have are written for the shuttle, so I have to study the pattern. & with most patterns you just have to start in the center and"go with the flow". I tell my students that they can do anything if they can read. In tatting you must be able to tell the front from the back
As you can see by my picture(in my profile), That tube coming from my neck attaches me to a vent. If the electricity shuts off, I stop breathing for a few seconds before the emergency generator kicks on. The nurses here at the Nursing home are great!!! When my alarm goes off every one rushes in to help. The administrator has been kind enough to let me make and sell my jewelry. Graduated from West Liberty State Teachers college with two degrees.

Jenn is very happy :D
Finally it seems my computer was ready to download some pics. Here is the very first tatted lanyard with split rings with a bead in the middle. I am very excited that it came out as well as it did.
My tea-cloth, for those of you following, was put on hold due to an accident at an amusement park. I have been resting my wrists without reducing their movement, and though there is still some extension pain, the rotational pain is gone. I can now tat again.
Of course, this week, my baby went to his first day of kindergarten. He did great, of course, but I'm thinking I need to introduce him to a craft of some sort. My sister suggested knitting. I'm not sure yet. I also have a couple
I just tried to post a message and messed it up so I'll try again! I have finished two bookmarks since my class ended and am currently working on three other projects. I've become really hooked. The colors in the attached photo are not true as the orange ribbon actually reflects a color in the thread. I think it turns out well; at least, I'm pleased. Hope you will like it, too.
Good morning! My day started with repurposeing our shed for some roosters a lady gave to us. They are young and we're going to let them get a bit bigger before they go in the freezer! Wow I forgot how funny chicken are. I cut a big chunk out of my finger so not sure how the tatting will go. I may try it in a bit after the throbbing stops.
I have finished a couple of braclets, one for my daughter & one for my son's girlfriend who is in the hospital after being shot in the chest. I
Here is a link to my 'guest post' this week, linking my experience in this wonderful community to the spaces I am creating for my students.
I am teaching a morning class of Free Form Tatting, and an afternoon class of Solutions and Possibilities and they are going smashingly well. I asked both classes today if they felt the classes were going well for them and got some great comments. Everyone is going great, learning new things.
I was thrilled today when several tatters in the afternoon classed expressed interest in Maltese tatting and mastered the basic methods.
We were also able to compare the Catherine
I finished an item, my second. Pattern from Learning How to Tat (author I can't remember), #80 thread White Coats and Clark.
What I learned:
How to make a corner, thanks to a mirror.
How to attach using crochet, thanks to Jolette's Flickr page.
What I will do differently, next time:
Use Lizbeth thread coming in an order.
Give it as a gift.
I didn't have anything to do after I finished the Classic Doily and so I doodled with this little oval. It is done in size 40 Coates thread and measure about 6 inches across.
I made another entry about tatting on my blog
And this time I made it bilingually, the idea I got from some blogs I saw from our members here .
