Tatting, and Labor Day Almost With Jane Eborall

I messed up couple times and then realized after double checking the book, she gave the picot gauge for size forty thread.

I love the pattern, but need to be very careful with tension on all the chains,

Connecting picots I did experiment around making longer ones first and then connecting them.  Instead of other way round.  Had to correct a mistake at first round, I forgot the rings

I really did enjoy the large airy like look, and I pinned and hair sprayed lightly, to keep from twisting the rings on the long thread ends. This is not very perfect but am trying :) 

This photo is bleached out a bit, but used Marilee Rockley's "Snowflake" thread her blog here and matched the center with a pink from lizbeth from Handy Hands Tatting the green is Jungle green and a brown from Lizbeth threads

Monday was the last holiday of the summer called Labor Day Me in pink and hubby in middle 

My oldest daughter and her children, Dad had work :(  We hiked up Stone Mountain in Georgia!
To give you and idea of how big this is, a 6ft man could stand inside of the horses mouth that is open at front of carving above the family.

This was a hot day and very up hill climb, we found a lounge chair. I am in pink shirt!
Oh yes I found one of the most disgusting parts or the whole hike, the famous gum tree where you place your gum at the beginning of hike and pick it up at the end of hike ha ha ha.
I was blogging today and found that Jane Eborall and I just missed each other I am always as they say
I should have left some sort of tatting any where but here ha ha ha

  4. Thankyou on the tatting, and yes that gum tree is gross had to take the picture. I went on an tubing trip and saw a flip flop tree and it was cute and colorful with lost flip flops that floated down river but the gum was unbelievable :)

  11. So delicate and beautiful Carollyn, I can see that you'd have to work at it, but it's worth the effort. Love your family pics! What a shame that you just missed Jane. Tatters that pass in the night? Or day.

  21. So glad you got this book that you wanted. The patterns are unusual and so pretty. You did a fantastic job with joining the large picots. I often find it difficult to adjust the loop sizes after joining. The two pieces you tatted are so beautiful. Love your choice of colours too.

  22. Thankyou, I do find this book challenging. And struggle with the picots. I am not sure how she manages to not get hers to overlap on one side :(
