A tat-along delight

I have started getting back into tatting with the cooler weather and this stupid COVID19 virus lockdown. There was a tat along on Facebook in May,  Kwitnacy kasztanoweic - Blooming Chestnut run by Frywolitka2233 (Ewa Wasiliszyn) so I signed up for it. Lovely little pattern that is simple but quite elegant. The original had beads but I did not have any that fitted well with the thread. Thank you Ewa. It is a great little pattern and I look forward to seeing your book when it comes out. You can follow Ewa on Facebook for more information and possibly future tat alongs??

Another Ginny beauty!

A long time ago I got a pattern from Ginny Weathers. She had designed a doily incorporating metal filigree squares. Sadly at the time I could not source them here and I put the pattern away. Not that long ago I was reminded of that pattern and decided to see if any of the findings I had would work. My thread of choice is usually 40 and I had some smaller findings than the ones Ginny used in her pattern with size 20 thread, so experiment time it was!!! I know this pattern as Lottie but it is also known as Star Attraction. is a lovely pattern to tat. The metal findings were just the right size for the 40 thread and I LOVE it!!!! Thank you for sharing your design talents. xxx Thread is Guineviere size 40 by AlenaleaDesign
