Little Guy That Needed a Gecko.

Had fun with one of  the many free patterns from Jane Eborall's blogspot  I did find some graduated beads to place in the back  (Did add more double stitches to to larger beads.) and sent this to my grandson.
Thanks to Jane and all You tatters that make patterns for us to enjoy
Keep tatting!

White Lace and Pearls


I got out my white nail polish and painted this key white and makes me want to make another :)
My husband had to go out of town to take a class and for me he visited the
"Yarn Shop"
I shout out to lovely people that sell tatting thread too!
once again this little shop is not close by the lucky people of Ohio get to have fun :)

brown with purple and gold beads size 40 lisbeth  the keys are antique replica that I ordered in bulk!
don't over pay shop around and make sure they are good size for tatting 3 to 4 inches.
cause they make tiny tiny ones that look like these too. 

My Grandmother I am sure you have seen this picture before, I  have my wire bending years and made this frame with a little chicken wire, she grown up in depression area and when first married they cleaned out a chicken coup and lived in it too. she was a tatter and crocheter and made the best apple pie ever when her children and grandchildren  make pies
you are to cut the top with a traditional pattern, from the family :)
I will have to post that sometime soon for Thanksgiving holiday.

Key To My Heart

I really doesn't take long, like tatting around button.
                              

 This size 40 thread.
 I did crochet stitch around the edge of the keys by starting with a slipknot and pulled thread from the front and then the back and pulled through the slip knot and continue around.  I did not count I just pushed and squashed the thread, so very little metal shows.
This also can be done with a shuttle too,  I just saved winding around the shuttle time.
This is size 80 thread this key is slightly smaller too.

I ordered the keys in bulk they are fun like buttons to tat around.
these two are size 40.

The little button will be attached to a necklace found wonderful little tassels
at Hobby Lobby too. 

I just directly tatted around this one key. stopped and went back to other side.

This particular doily is not as flimsy as others one shuttles tatting projects have done.

 The following pictures are working backwards you can see no
chains, just all rings.

Isn't it fascinating that you can create beautiful works just from rings only!

Here is the book I just got, it has several one shuttle patterns, and snowflakes

Mignonette Lace With Sukkulapitsi (tatting)

You can take this with you while you wait :)

I was playing around with tatting and started 3 different bags I love the Orange Crush color I got from Handy Hands when the first came out with it and this is size 40.  The yellow is size 80 also a lizbeth color just cant remember the name :) 
With one shuttle...

Here is how you start, and you come to this point and keep going this is a second round going to the third.
No need to measure the string as you go from ring to ring just try to do same measurement you can be off its okay.

Had to show you this gold fish tea bag, by my tomatoes.
I will work on the tail and eyes later.
have a wonderful week
keep tatting
