Scarlet O'Hara Tatted Lace Too!

Gone With the Wind
Any woman born in American between 1940 and 1980 has seen this move multiple times. 
At least that's my personal opinion.
I know I made several mistakes with this TIAS but when done (thanks Jane), I could not think of any thing else, for I live in the south and by several battlefields and have personally visited most all from the great Civil
War that almost divided a nation and freed slaves  fought brother against bother and so on , I had to make her place her hand on her mouth.
This is a 1940's movie that actually references tatting miles of lace with her friends, and is from a book that wrote about a time during the civil war 1061 to 1865.
I did write down a couple of famous quotes from the movie that I have said or herd on many occasions.

Below is a bit of a late Start on the newest spring doily from Renulek's Blogspot and I hope you all will enjoy her latest get pattern by clicking on her name above.

The dishes are a favorite I bought at a lovely little store called "Tuesday Morning" and I love them and they reminded me of a friends blog that Crochets and has recipes and tips, I told her that I have some bowels that match her cups, but upon further inspection I see they are not but close and super pretty her blog is called Scottys-Place
She lives in a beautiful place too :)

And I received these beautiful shuttles from Veronica from St. Petersburg Russia they are  larger  I only own one shuttle larger that this and I can actually tat with them and I have small hands too :) I do enjoy different kinds of shuttles and yes I find it fun to adapt to each one. I did get tired of winding these though and I have tons of thread on there and feel I could make the whole doily without loading the shuttles again.
Lets see how far get with these "puppies"

I actually have many tatting projects and less time these last couple months and I have made progress on the Rose and Thistle doily just need more free tatting time :)
Sorry I was printed so many words  with this post It wont happen too much more :)

Remember

tat miles with your friends :)
and
" I'll think about it tomorrow, tomorrow is another day"

    1. I know what you mean I really struggled with what color or colors to use, I thought it would be easier cause we know what the finished doily will look like too๐Ÿ˜„

  2. I'd love to see Gone With the Wind again. I enjoyed the book as well as the film. You may need those big beautiful shuttles when we're further along on the renulek doily! The thistle doily is just lovely.

  3. The thistle doily, with your colour choices and interesting design elements, is tempting me so much !
    I've read the book and enjoyed it. Can't remember if I watched the movie. At the time I didn't know about tatting. Love your presentation and reference :-)
    Blue pottery & china is my favourite

  4. Lovely blue pottery, goes well with those beautiful shuttles, lovely colour for a spring doily. I still have one of hers to finish really should finish it before starting another. I have a project to start first.

  6. Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite books and movies! I've often wondered what pattern Scarlet tatted! :-)

    I also own some of those beautiful painted shuttles, and they do hold a ton of thread... perfect for larger projects!

    I purchased Renulek's 2017 doily so that I would have a condensed version for my pattern files. I haven't started it yet... too many irons in the fire!

    I love your Thistle Doily! I would love to tat it some day.

    1. Oh I see understand what you mean about Renulek's doily, I watched as others worked the doily for a couple years then I decided to try it. I enjoyed the wait cause I did other things. And posting what I did actually helped me complete it. I noticed Renulek mention the struggle for good thread. Maybe I can send you some what size do you like? My email is tennbrown@gmail.com ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

  11. Gone with the Wind is one of my all time favourite films!
    I'm surprised Scarlet could tat - fiddle-dee-dee!
    Your work is wonderful and I'm full of admiration for anyone who can tat. I've tried and tried to learn to crochet - but I always get in a dreadful mess haha!
    Thank you for popping to my blog.
