ARCHES


This is what i have tatted over the last week. I love the colors it's Lizbeth size 20. The pattern is called ARCHES by Marilee Rockley. My Arches arn't as good as hers.While tating it was very twisted but pining out sorted it.
 I'm also tatting a hankie edging just one corner and 6 repeats to go.
 At charnwood tatting today we had a workshop on some bead work what a fiddly thing it is, if and when i Finnish will give you a look.
Well it's Saturday eve and nothing on TV so will have to start a new pattern from TATTED ARTISTRY a book I've just got back after several months.

JUST FINNISHED

This is what i have been working on. It's out of the book The Tatters Treasure Chest. Starlight Doily made with Elizbeth 40 ocean. It has 6 rounds, I enjoyed the tatting but the pinning out was hell as it was very twisted, I've had it under a few boxes of jigsaw to weigh it down even after pinning out.

I'M BACK

I've been badgered to return. I will not be able to blog daily but will try at least once a week.
What have i done recently? Jane's Fandango edging I've turn into a cross, have a look at her site.(sorry don't know how to do links).

Yesterday i got out a book i bought last year, ALTERNATE THREADS by the Shuttle Brothers. At first it look hard but once i understood what was happening i did a couple of there patterns.I can see that it can change patterns we have been tatting for years into something new.That's the plan for today!!
