On Saturday it will be Charnwood Tatting Day every year members do a project for display. This year we decided to make lap quilts one member supplied the squares and stitched the motifs on. I made them up into the quilts. What do you think? lots of lovely tatting. The weather forecasters predict lots of snow so two lucky old people are going to enjoy these.

Well here's the other tatting i was talking about. It is meant to be tatted in one colour but with the shoe lace trick i did it in two colours. Altin Basak 50 was the thread and the patternis by Teiko Fujitofrom her book Tatted Artistry. I did it for the display at Charnwood Tat day on 16 October.  Love this book many beautiful patterns.
