Sneak Peek....

I was chatting with Jane Eborall about how to design animals as I wanted to make a koala to possibly try and help raise funds for our bushfire affected wildlife here in Australia. Well as usual Jane was well ahead of me and asked if I would like to proof her new koala pattern!! Hmmmm...would I? You bet I would. So Sunday night was dedicated to not only proofing Jane's pattern, but learning techniques I had never done before! Folded ring and double double stitch. Plus adding a bead to the centre of a ring which I have done but had forgotten how to do....duh! Don't be put off....they were pretty easy once you got the hang of them! Plus Jane has her great technique 'how to' pages on her site. Koala took me about 1.5 hrs but that included learning the techniques I was clueless about. He is gorgeous! Thanks Jane and BC3. Luv ya xx Thread is size 40 Gunmetal grey and black by AlenAleaDesign

"Arleta" Tat-along

Laura Bziukiewicz has become one of my favourite designers in the past few months. Her patterns are lovely to look at and great to tat. So when she decided to do a tat-along, I could hardly resist could I?? This doily is called Arleta. No longer available as a tat along but it is available in her Etsy store. Nice to tat. Sits well without much blocking and lends itself to a lot of different variations if you combine colors differently! Thanks for sharing Laura. I look forward to many more patterns to keep me on my toes!! Thread:  Lizbeth  40 White Lizbeth 40 Turquoise Lt (662)
