Needle Tatting


Sorry to be delayed in posting this, but Blogger has been in a snit.

The day I left for the wedding a tatting book that I had ordered arrived. Since I had to have some sort of needlework to do and I couldn't pack my CQ stash, the tatting was thrown in my suitcase. Minitats 69 Petite Motifs by Patti Duff has a great selection of motifs that will be great for crazy quilting.

The 3 on the left are all made from the same pattern, but using different thread sizes, Cebelia 20 & 30 and Perle Cotton 12. The 3 on the right are all made using Perle Cotton 12. I want to try some of the patterns in Tatting 80. I think they would make a pretty bouquet of flowers.

The chocolate wrapper wisdom of the day is "Get your feet massaged." Oh doesn't that sound lovely!

Oh...they are beautiful. I want so badly to learn how to do this. My mother was very clever on this, but now she do not remeber how to do this. She got alzheimer.

Oh I love these! I see Charlene has already seen them.. (she has been helping me try and figure out how to learn this lovely art form). I do okay, then I get all turned upside down.. I tried the shuttle, and well....we won't go into that..

Beautiful work hon, and would love to see some of these on your CQ work.

Those are lovely motifs! I can only needle tat a bit and forget shuttle tatting! I am usually a good student, but not when learning to tat! Those are great!
