Laura's doily better picture

J.B.'s doily looked so pretty on the dark background, I decided to shoot mine again. I like the results.

Also, I have gotten a friend interested in tatting again. She did basic tatting years ago, but now wants to go further. Yea!!!

J.B.'s doily finished!

Here is a picture of J.B.'s tatted friendship doily finished! Isn't it pretty? I have also made a collage of the three doilies. Picase put two pictures of mine in there to even it out. I think it is so interesting that three people can start out with the same pattern with such varied results. Of course, the fact that we passed them around two times helps with that too!

Laura's tatted friendship doily finished!

Here is my tatted friendship doily - finished! I love the way it has turned out and I am so thankful to J.B. and Elizabeth for their friendship and for asking me to participate in this friendship doily. I am glad this one is finished, but hope to do another one some day.

As soon as I get a picture of J.B.'s finished, I will include it here with mine and Elizabeth's.

Thanks again tatting friends!

Mother's Day 2007

I know you are all just dying to see new pictures of my grandson! We had a great Mother's Day, as you can see.

No tatting pictures. I am working on my daughter's wedding hanky.

Tatted Rose Garden Doily Motif

This tatted motif is from the "Big Book of Tatting." That seems to be my resource of choice lately. Tatting this was quick and fun - two of my main requirements! I love my tatting, but I get bored with long, drawn out projects. There are supposed to be 19 of these motifs tatted and joined together, but this one will probably stand alone unless I run out of things to do. (The afore-mentioned is highly unlikely. I don't remember the last time I had nothing to do!)

Oh, I almost forgot. The white and pink threads are Flora. The yellow is DMC Cebelia. The yellow Flora I had on hand was too bright.

Jane Eborall's Tatted Crab

Another tatted "critter" for Isaac's room! I can't wait for him to wake up from his nap and see it! As far as I'm concerned, Jane is a tatting wizard! I enjoyed doing the continuous thread join "CTJ" on the legs. It wasn't near as complicated as it sounded. Thanks again Jane.
