Sorry it's been a very long time since last post.  I am struggling with my phone and the new formatting they have for my blog.  Hopefully I can get more than one picture on here. I have test tatted for Robin's new book called "Four Dozen Snowflakes" they are all unique, beautiful and fun to make these are size 80 thread.  Her patterns are wonderful as always.

Queen of Hearts

I order these little faces and painted the lips and eyeshadow then glued her onto felt. Making hair with yarn and French knots. Then,finding so tatting I almost throughout. I wanted to try one of these out for her collar.,thiThis tatting I will use for her. It was a snowflake that I messed up the stitch count and I will carefully cut off the other parts of tatting I cant use. Then stitch under her neck.

               It's been a while,  been busy and working on using my tatting in projects lately. Also not tatting at all.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

More Tatting Lace


Blackbeary is modeling the latest round done in the 2020 Renulek's spring doily

My daughter sent a picture of the tatted bracelet in peach.
The doily is now getting too big for the larger board ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
I found using a large needle works best to send the ring thread through the ribbon flower.
Have a lovely day tat away๐Ÿ’

Bracelets With a Victorian Charm

I can't remember the name of the color, I want to say dark linen or dark ecru.

I can make one in little over a movie.

Peach is nice too.

Here is all three.  I have gotten faster at pulling the thread through the silk flower.

Deciding what clasp to use is not easy, but I have decided I like tatting them on better than adding them later
I hope I can stop making them I'm nuts about it.๐Ÿ˜ƒ
The pattern is by lazydaisy the link is a couple of posts back.  Thank you lazy Daisy on Instagram.

Beads With Silk Flowers๐Ÿ’ for Tatting Lace Bracelets

This free pattern is from Instagram by
Lazy Daisy Tatting
Click on "blue lazy Daisy tatting" for pattern it's in the picture with the bracelet.
Thank you Lazy Daisy ๐Ÿ’

I am going to try and make quite a few for my daughters (2) and some friends and their young daughters
She makes the with resin bead flowers and I thought of silk flowers instead๐Ÿ’

A very small crochet hook gently pushed through the satin works with no sewing.
Just make sure once the hook is through you open the tunnel with sliding it up on the hook before grabbing the thread.


Hopefully you have clasps if not and Walmart is out you can remove it from older unwanted jewelry.

I added the coiless pin to hold the silk flower in place like you would with regular beading.
๐Ÿ’ave fun tatting away the day๐Ÿ’
