About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Rocking Horse

When Gina Brummett made this little guy a couple months ago, I liked it so much, I sent for the book. (Little did we know) It's from Pam Palmer's Tatting Treats Two. I didn't have the size #40 thread, so I used 20. I've sent for some 40. It's on sale right now, Lizbeth, at Zig Zag. Mine is not so dainty. But, he's my first try at it, so I'll have to give it another go, when I get my thread. It would make a very nice picture in a baby's room, or sewn onto a patch on a patch work baby quilt. I'd put his tail on upside down, so off that came to do again. My only beef with this pattern is that it would end with a chain just sitting in space and I wasn't told to attach it somewhere. That comes with more experience, I guess.


  1. It's a lovely pattern! I was going to get a copy of the book but it's out of print. :(
