Tatsy Snowman


I made this little guy for my sister-in-law. She really likes snowmen. It's from the Tatsy tatting book. The hat and scarf was from a free pattern sheet designed by Sandy Scales and Barbara Foster.

Still Tatting Snowflakes


I'm still having fun making snowflakes. The two on the right are from Jane Eborall's blog, Sunflower snowflake. The rest are Jon Yusoff's Tatted Snowflakes Collection. 

I learned something new about beads on the rings. The correct one is in the upper right.

Teddy Bears

 This is what I've been doing lately. I think I'm up to 10 now. This is a Teddy Bear pattern by Monica Hahn. The more recent ones have beads. Something I haven't done much. But it's coming along.

Blanket done.

I just finished this C2C child's size blanket. I'd started it two years ago and was only half done. I finally did the other half. I still have lots of yarn to make one or two more. It's cold out so I don't mind an afghan on my lap for a few weeks more.

Apple tree

This is my latest project. I've tatted apple blossoms and blutterflies. I painted the tree with water color. There's a little spacer between the glass and picture. It gave it a little depth.
Getting a few things done these days as there's no place to go.

Anybody out there?

I'm starting to wonder if my followers are getting my blogs. I haven't had a comment since before December.

I've been sitting at home lately. Partially because of the virus scare. Our pool is closed and church services were cancelled today.
Anyway here are some of the cards I've been tatting up. Some are from Lindsay Roger's book One-Shuttle tatting. Others from Mary Maynard's book Tatting Rings of Flowers.

Regal Dragon

A lady friend wanted another dragon for her 3 years old grandson. He likes to watch Mike the Knight. Mike has a couple dragon friends. This one is Squirt. He sprays water and makes things clean. It's a very cute kids show.

Regal Dragon

A dear friend has a grandson who likes to watch Mike the Knight. She asked me to make this set up for him. I'm hoping to paint a background soon.

2 unicorns, an aeroplane and a rocket ship

This is what I've been playing at lately. I'm thinking about putting them on cards. The aeroplane is from Jane Eborall and the rest is from Martha Ess's books.

Teapots, hearts and teddy

This is part of what I've been doing lately. The weather is very cold out there. Good days to stay inside and play at my tatting. Martha Ess is the designer for the tea pots and bear in her book Flights of Fantasy.  I do like her designs They are well written and she includes a good graph to help keep one on track.
