Big Eyed Dolls, with Tiny Tatted Lace

I have had this idea for over a year just need some time to focus.

This is her lovely shawl, she is using cause my air conditioner is to cold she said.
I just bought this from Szoszonka at Etsy.

This dress is made from one of my daughters old shirts and first pattern was scraped  and this one works.
Just needs to have some matching trim.

She got three colors of knitted shawls loves this pattern.
she wanted the Victorian red, but I stuck with the light grey and some beads.
We'll keep you posted on this designer out fit cause there is lots more tatting to make.
Have a wonderful week!

Tatting Lace With Just Pastel Colors

Can you guess the book this one came from?

The center.

it will take 9 of these 

Interesting tip to remember about a picot gauge. 


With a ring, the gauge sits above the core of the ring.

With chains, the gauge sits below the core thread.
Well I was hurrying a bit and didn't un-spin my shuttle before making picot so some got a little twist
but I am going with the natural look ha ha ha  :)

from the book
"Mastering tatting, by Lindsay Rodgers"

4th of July With Occhi and a big Question, Do Dogs Lay eggs?



I have not been posting much, having a very full summer,

Had to re-tat a necklace for granddaughter You know the one with Elsa :)

Just a happy grandson

The big summertime question..... do dogs lay eggs?  

this was re-tatted at night will children were sleeping the old one was well worn so cut off the cool aid stained tatting and saved the beads and "went to town" as they say, and tatting madly.

This chain was easy and quick to do just one half of double stitch around a core threads and added a bead every ten stitches and away we go.
hope you all are keeping busy and having a wonderfully summer.

Town of Farragut Artist of the Month

                  I got to place lots of tatted lace in the town halls display case.
There was three sections to one very large cabinet, the sequence is from left to right. 

Most items you have seen on this blog. 

My eldest daughter arranged the cases, and at first I thought we thought I may not have enough tatting to fill the spaces but we actually had to take some back home would you believe. These pictures were taken from my phone and hopefully they will post fine I will be going back next week to take some  pictures with camera 
these are from my phone.

Dora Young's Book,a Beginning For One of Those Patterns :)


I had to start right away
I do feel she tats very loose compared to my tension 

little confusion can be cleared up with markers in this case coiless pins.
I will have to stop for now as I will be preparing all my tatting for a display case at our local town hall
Have a wonderful week keep tatting
