Woven Picot Pattern PDF just added at bottom of this post!

I finally found this old bookmark when reminded by Muskaan's Tips weaving picots  and only one page of directions out of two.
I is enough to make whole pattern if you understand how to weave a little :)

This is from 2007 and the thread size is 20, and I did not use a gauge.
I tried to locate the lady that designed this woven picot pattern Marrie Stoffer, and old webbsight with out any luck.
Most all of the pattern is here this picture can be enlarged too.
I have started a new one, just to see if I could remember using the directions, before I found the old bookmark

The directions gets you to the next side and I attached the picots in reverse order.  It was fun but made them too long.
I used size 40 thread and this time I made my own picot gauge, but it was too long.
My guess for size twenty would be one centimeter but best to test tat. 

The other tip that was given and on last page was to use a crochet hook to weave and this makes work go faster too.
It also seems a bit easier if the weaving part is tatted with variegated thread.
Maybe someone can remember this free pattern or has part two can be done with this one page and I did conect picots and omit some from origanal :)
sorry I took so long to find this :(
have a great day
I can help anyone that wants to give it a try.

Eclectus Parrot Beaded and More Clunies

Been working off an on with this beading project, I was commissioned to make. 

This bird is called an Eclictus and only the females have this bright colorings these are some steps I use.

She wants to frame Lucy and the paper behind is the smallest size. I have been having fun finding little trinkets to add to the beading and incorporating them in. 

the actual picture of Lucy is below

Looks like lots of the tatting bloggers have been making clunies and I'm not sure if I will keep this round I started cause one of the clunies is imperfect :) but undecided the thread is so small.
hope you all have a great time at your pursuits, till I post again hugs from Carollyn:)

French Frivolite and Renulek Doily Update

I love this beautiful pattern, I feel has a nice elegance design for frivolite here I found it easy to tat and can picture many colors for this pattern.

below is and update on spring doily :) like Ninetta and others said it did go by faster than the last row I think it is because you kind of get to skip one by just connecting a chain.
and like Muskaan said I only had to fill the white small shuttle once.
have a great Sunday to all :)

Renulek's Wiosna Row 15 in Progress

I only have 50 rings left to connect with this round 15 but to get through it I mark with coil less pin and do 10 rings a day, and this round should be done in 5 more days :) this helps me race myself.  I have so many other tatting projects  and beading to work on.
 Above is the video of a little visit from one of my smallest visitors for summer the mixture is one part sugar to 3 parts water and boil and let cool.
have wonderful summer!
