Tatting Lace With Lizbeth Size 3 Strawberry

I love this color, from Handy Hands, Lizbeth size 3, This strawberry is so big, Husband said it looks like an eggplant :)
I have to admit I couldn't resist trying this after all the creativeness West Pine Creations have been putting into these strawberries! 

I wanted to call it "Royal Purple Berry" the thread color is actually Lizbeth's "Elderberry Jam"
more on the shuttles I use for this size thread on the next post it is a new and old surprise :)

Some of the berries with bees, as you figured out from the last post I collect bees!

I have made other things from large tatting thread and it hurt my hands normally, but the rings were small and the thread was smooth it went well and my hands don't hurt.

I use you my regular size strawberries now a days to put my(click on purple word for information) "fitbit" in to motivate me.

I really became fascinated with this adorable motif from Ninetta's blog "ninettacaruso.blogspot"
this is morphing from a square into a collar from her aunt.  Made with numbers of 3 double stitches, check out what happens next on her blog she has great instructions too! Thank you Ninetta!

  2. Wow what some amazing tatting - those strawberries are fantastic especially the very large one. I did start Ninetta's collar pattern but got sidetracked (as usual) so delighted to see that you have managed it.

  7. I'm tempted by the strawberries! I've been working on Ninetta's square too. I'm thinking of putting three together to make a bookmark. After seeing Ninetta's latest blog post, I'm wondering if I could add a point to one end of the bookmark. It's very clever.

  8. actually, I know what you mean, I was starting it to make a little box (with 4 of them and 2 on the ends), because the squares seemed so perfect and then I saw what she did next and was thinking of changing the color and making the collar and this box :) but will I be able to do them all!

    Beautiful square motifs!!! :) Love the bright colors!!! :)

  11. I adore your purple strawberry! I've seen the harvest on WPC, and was thinking they'd be fun to create. You have your own basket of strawberries. Fab! Love that thread you used for Ninetta's square (thanks for the link!). I am really going to have to set aside some tatting time! (well, I have been tatting, but it's stuff I can't show)
