Busy fingers, 25 Tatted!

I have been doing quite a bit of tatting ahead of Friday's market. I've gotten most of my pieces tatted and only need findings for them to be complete. Somewhere along the line I stopped using a picot gauge, so if things look a little rough around the edges...well, practice, practice, practice...

In no particular order, for your consideration, I give you:

An assortment of variations on Dianna Stevens' Simple Bookmark in size 10 ecru, pink, white, and size 20 cream.

This one I messed up the chains (uniformly throughout); it looks a bit different from its companions. Size 10 white.

Another Janette Baker bookmark in size 10 white.

A bunch of flowers (there are actually about 30 of them) ready to be made into hair pins. Some are Leila's pattern, others are from Lindsay Rogers' book Tatting Collages. All tatted in size 10. I intend to layer them.

A few variations on the Kersti's Stumpy Bookmark in size 10 pink and white.

And lastly the heart I made for Aunt Maryann. It is Birgit's Celtic Heart in Southmaid variegated pink and Coats ecru, both size 10. (I messed up on the chain at the top, but I think I'll just stick with it.)

If I don't count the flowers, this puts me at 25 again!!!!


  1. Lots of wonderful tatting!! :) You sure have been busy!!! :)

    1. Thank you, I have been busy. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

  2. My goodness, you've been busy! There are times when I abandon my picot gauges, but other times I just need to strive for perfection. That's when the picot gauges come in handy!

    1. I've really worked hard on these and they make very pretty bracelets (one may become a choker). I'm proud of them.

      I've also managed to chip the very tip of one of the blinged shuttles you gave me. :-( It still works fine, just not as lethal as it used to be.

  3. This is an interesting post! Visually very appealing and lots of your tatting!

    Good thing you gave that hankie back. Of course, for certain it would have been in your hand when your fountain pen leaked - and you do not even have a fountain pen!!!

    1. Thanks, Fox. Not nearly as impressive as your work, but I can aspire.

      As for the hankie, I was very careful because I DO have a fountain pen!
