I may not have been blogging but I have been tatting.

Hello People of Tatland

I still can not import pictures on the main computer in the house to my blog. So I have had to put pictures on a memory stick and use the laptop so I hope this works!!!!

Let see, first up I have finished the beaded necklace pattern by Nina Libin in white size 20 thread. I am still working on a pattern for earrings to go with the necklace.

I have also been doing some more of Pams cameo pendants for some tatting friends of mine. I also gave her slave bracelet pattern a go. I must say for some reason this pattern gave me a few problems but after 3 tries I got it.

And I have been very selfish and have tatted two thing for me. Who do I think I am!!! I used Nina Libin pattern for the anklet in Lizbeth thread size 20.and I am almost finished this bracelet in Lizbeth size 20 colour called Pistachio Green Lt.

Well that is about it for now. After I finish this bracelet I have plans to do Jon`s Overlapping Chains Bookmark for one of our customers I clean for. She just had a knee replaced and is laid up.So I thought it would cheer her up. I take its picture and post it before I give it to her. I hope. Looks like this set up for blogging worked so you may start to get sick of hearing from me now.

Hope everyone is doing well and don`t forget to get your registration form for Septembers tatting weekend in Cambridge, Ontario filled out and returned. click on Tat Days.

Tatfully Yours

I know, I know. But I can explain......

I know it has been a while between blog postings but life with a teenager and cleaning for seniors has taken its toll on me these past few weeks. Also a birthday party for my mother-in-law. About 3 weeks ago we had one of our dear seniors past away and a little later that week my teenage son was punched by someone at school. (Lets just say it was below the belt!) Then the birthday party that my sister in laws started to plan was handed over to my husband and I. But now I have all this behind me and I can get back to doing something I love!!!!


This is Pam's pattern I am still doing and enjoying!!! This set is made with size 30 thread DMC. I am taking part in the Fringes' Tatting Exchange and this lovely set is on its way to Australia. I hope she likes it.


This next piece I am also enjoying doing. It is from the "Tatting with Visual Patterns" by Mary Konior book that I received in my last order from Handy Hands. Not sure how big I'm going to make it. We will have to wait and see.

Time to get ready for work!! Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

P.S. Don't forget to check out the Fringe Elements web site. If you click on the Tat Days button you can get the info and print out the registration form for the tatting weekend coming this September. Mine is printed, check written and mailed already.

Happy tatting everyone!!!!!!
