Fun People Just Didn't Get Enough Pictures

This is another wonderful class taught by Carolyn Craig at left and two students Katrina (I hope I'm right with her name)and me. 

We made these lovely cats and she painted the heads to match the thread she supplied too.
I love he tail technique this can be used in other 3 d things like flowers. 

I taught the key class and we also had a great time in the lobby at hotel just talking tatting is was fantastic
Above is Patricia , Maryanna, Sharon they finished there keys. 

Another smart and fun taltented lady with key😀

And looky looky who I got to meet the famous Georgia Seitz in person, she is real😁

I was able to meet and watch the talented needle tatters and am so impressed with them I remember the lady from Manhattan NY Sherry
I loved how the little beautiful bracelet of Sharon, brought us both shuttle and needle tatters together. 
Have a great day and wear that tatted hat I say.

Another Purpose For a Key

"Victorian Credit Card Keeper" with an inserted protection barrier!  

I forgot to take a picture of the key by it's self and it gets stitched on first before it is sew together.

I found that no one can read your credit card with these simple silver proctors and so I carefully insert them inside 
between the velvet and felt.  Frey check the velvet where the edge is cut so you can stitch things down.

After the key is sewn on, then stitch the keeper together and tatting simple edge to fit all the way around
I stitch the tatting in place keeping a few credit cards in it so you don't stitch too far in ward. 

keeping the credit cards inside while stitching can help too when you need to add a little something for artistic balance :)
the protectors can be ordered at Amazon or eBay.
My blackberries made great tarts, I actually made 3 but the other 2 got eaten too fast!
Little over half way round with the spring doily!

What Becomes of Tatting Lace?

Here is what became of this key

Below spring doily size 80 thread and measuring in at 34cm  getting large now and yes I think the last row will take longer than a week to finish I pinned approximant 30 repeats and this gives me extra days to tat other things! 

Have a wonderful day!

Oh Yea, Here's the Key to the House (Tatting Lace)

I know, I have gone key crazy, took this picture to show of tiny glass bead :)

Just finished!

tucked into the phone case :) above.
 another key for tat days and working out the beads for the kit and decided to go with these beads
for this key.

I got the smallest pearls for the smallest key. I took this picture cause the fabric in my shirt matched so perfectly.

Below of course is spring doily it is getting large and somehow I still have been able to keep up with the doily along with my preparing for Tat Days! 

The color is off it is dark out and this is with a flash, just FYI.
Have a great week tatting away!
