Larks head knot


A couple of days ago while blog cruising i heard on Gina's blog about a Larks head knot. I first heard about this when i started tatting. When i asked people about this no one knew what it was. I did my best with a lock join. Now i have the info i have re-tatted the heart using the knot. I have not got the little blob of second colour. Go and have a look at her blog (threads of a tatting goddess) and follow the link. I'll use this on many projects in future.
The pattern is derivative of heartsy by
Teri Dusenbury and done by BJ tats.

Anniversary vase.


Hello again, sorry i have not posted any thing recently.Have been on jollies to isle of wight.

I did a small amount of large project i talked about but i don't like it so I'm going to start again. I bought the ring of tatters new anniversary book , has some lovely patterns. I did enjoy making this little vase and flowers from the book it was done especially for the 30 anniversary by Abby fisher-small. I used Lizbeth 10 for the vase and altin basak 50 for the flowers. I'm really pleased how the vase turned out using variegated thread. It is a bit fiddly but that helped keeping my mind of the bad news i had from my son(25), we think his cancer has returned and he was doing so well. Will find out 18Th august. happy tatting everyone.
