One Shuttle Tatting Lace

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

this round almost done and one more pretty round to go,
Happy tatting

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

Tatting Lace and History Fair in Knoxville Tennessee

This was fun but after the first few rows I had to change the pattern.

I tried this from my new book but found making rings and split rings were easier than the method she explained for I feel when she wrote this book she didn't do split rings, this pattern was all chains.

This bowl was made at a wonderful little history fair it was a Raku Ceramic Booth pictured below
the cups or bowls were made and we painted the glaze and they fired them while you walk around and see the other booths pictured below
videoPart of a little parade :)

This man demonstrated making tin cup and sold some too.

These women dressed the part of women's suffrage movement another big part of American History. 

Civil War

Old World War II jeep

This time I did not do a tatting demonstration. I  helped work this booth where we had computers set up and helped people log onto and look at there family history and genealogy for free. We have places set op all over the world to let people log on and find there family for free.
I made this poster :) 

Well we did have fun with the solar eclipse, and this is what my cell phone took, but it is not how it really looked with the glasses, the sliver of moon is what was in front of the sun at this time,but the camera did not record it correctly. At my house we got the total eclipse and the most interesting thing besides the darkness, was the crickets and night bugs started to make nose like at night.

"Love in the Mist" Doily by Carollyn Brown

Finally finished :)

Outlining the with the thread.

Started a bonsai with a seedling this spring.
the little humming birds love to sit on the plants in front of the house.

Well my extra time this summer has mostly been dedicated to mowing the lawn, and we have had just the right amount of rain to do this once a week.  Have to put off tatting.
hope you all have a wonderful week.

Just One Picture of Tatting

Every one seemed to be very curious of how the hearts would be added on so even though I only added two I thought I would let you see how they are connected to the rest of the doily.
I also like this spool of thread for sewing/quilting
and color was in keeping with
the pastels.
looks to measure up with size 80
Have great day and tat to you later :)

Tatting Lace Update

Nine hearts finished to start the last row of this doily.

It is very hot outside and the humming bird food needs to be replaced more often and bug problem needs to be addressed with dish-washing soap in spray bottle etc, but I mange to tat and noticed a mistake in this last one so now i got to fix this too, sometimes I only find my mistakes when I take a picture of them.

well  I realized I may not have shown you my finished fancy collar and was able to wear to church Sunday.  

Have a great week keep tatting :)
