Spring Doily and Another Key

Well I finished night, I'm a day behind and this next round was posted yesterday, it's the same as the last I just have to choose colors and work again :) Renulek's Spring Doily 2019

I was working on a pattern that Margaret is designing for me for the Tat Days in Indiana.  And I messed up and decided to start over and instead of undoing it I just made up something that worked  out okay.  Margaret's is much better Wait till you see, she went all out!
That's next post! 
Below is a new bird house we put up for blue birds and the had children and moved out and now a set of swifts are checking it out.

Take a Break from Tatting with more Tatting :)

The white keys now have another friend, the "Blue" as more practice on the pattern
for Tat Days "The Wild Side"  

And prepping the keys for the tatting kits on Tatting Days in Indiana is one of the nice weather things to do today!


Yes, I started the next round of Renulek Spring Doily and even now, I think you could start the tat a long, I been able to do many other things and like the title says take a tatting break with tatting ha ha ha.

More Tatting Time


This round of 2019 Spring Doily was very quick to tat and I do believe others could still join in cause the next rows look like this one.   This allows me more time for other projects
so I made another key with a pink rose.
while perfecting the pattern
for Tat Days.

Tatting Lace "Two Birds With One Stone" Is the Key

This key is tiny and needed thread to match it and.....

there was a contest for the King Tut threads with Superior Threads so I decided to enter it with my Key.   So now working on a pattern for at "Tat Days" and I will be teaching the class for 3 different styles of keys included in kit with beads and etc.  Also giving you ideas for covering even more styles. 
Afterwards will sell kits for any one that can't come.

This Picture show the size difference with size 20 thread.
King tut is 100
There is one key for size 100 and one with 40 and one with size 20
I am really enjoying making these for Necklaces and Fobs and more.
Have a great Day!

Two Shakes of a Lambs Tail with Tatted Lace Spring Doily

My Mom used to say this term "two shakes of a Lambs tail"  to represent a short amount of time, she was raised on a farm and lambs evidently shake their tails very fast.  I did go a bit too fast and forgot a couple rings so I just added them. 

Tying them on then whip stitching them down. Click below 

Colors are brighter because it has been spayed with water, and blocked cause the little butterfly wings seems to want to fly anywhere and blocking with make them stay put for next round.
Have a wonderful day and Tat away :)

Tatting Lace keys and Spring Doily

I love the roses from pervious blog and they work perfectly with my Key, this key is imperfect if look closely but the roses seem to make it right!
The keys can be used like a frob, attaching to zipper pull or crochet hook, or in a necklace or decoration. 

Round 9 completed of Spring Doily 2019 tat-a-long, 
never to late to
