OK.... this is getting silly now.... The former tatting addict is getting those urges again. Can hardly believe how much time has gone by since I picked up a shuttle and thread.

SOOOOOO.... the challenge is on. I need something to inspire me to tat again. Not too big, not too small, and DEFINITELY not too fiddly....

Anyone got any ideas??


  1. Four words: Jan Stawasz New Book!
    Fox: )). Hi!

  2. Well how about my doily!! the Star Attraction with metal bits you could use buttons

  3. So nice to 'see' you again! Jewelry, doodads and beads, plus Celtic tatting, layered tatting, and Jan Stawasz pieces, are popular, plus revivals of Norma Benporath via Jon Yusoff. And, of course, bookmarks! And Renulek (see Fox) also has amazing designs. Lots of activity (happily) in Tat Land!

    I always enjoy the eye candy on your blog, plus the excellent slide show! Your tatting will be up to speed in no time!

  4. I vote for making pretty earrings!

  5. Do you have any of Julie Patterson's books, or Mary Konior's? I think either of those would be good inspiration without a terrible amount of difficulty. (Hate to scare you off!)

    1. after all this time tatting doubt you could scare me off.....LOL Just wanted something pretty and not too hard to get me going again brain wise!!
      I have all of Julie's books and also of Mary Konior's - love them and have made most of the patterns in them over the years.

  6. Have a look at the Lace Mat on Jon's blog; she ran a challenge last year, and there are so many gorgeous versions to inspire you! And it's a really pretty design, you'll enjoy it.

  7. You have to be kidding me???? You need a pattern????? WOW you are so clever you could make one up of your own........now there is a challenge LOL
    and Lots of love and Hugs great to hear from you
