Flowers, Necklace, Earrings, Edging, Bookmarks, Hearts, Doily, Teapot, Bracelet, TIAS and Motifs
Gina Brummett from Threads of a Tatting Goddess has passed away. She has been a tatting teacher and mentor for many years and is familiar to many tatters. Her humour and insight will be sorely missed.
Leila shares some pictures of Gina's tatting.
Jess tatted a one shuttle chevron for which she shares the pattern. The photo shot shows some of her thread, tatting and shuttles. She decided to join the Tat-Along making her flowers in Yarnplayer's Corsage HDT.
Heather tatted this little bookmark in her own design, while just fooling around and ended up really liking it.
Axa tatted Hearts Entwined by Jon Yusoff in Anchor Crochet size 20 for Valentine's day.
Julie has found some lovely hearts to tat including Susan Fuller's Heart's Desire and Tatted Heart and from Handy Hands both done in LizBeth size 20, Victorian Red. The first bit of edging she did when she started tatting a year ago may not look like much, but it was followed by edgings she attached to little shirts and Kersti Anear's Stumpy bookmark tatted in Royal Ocean thread. More recently she finished the Mary Konior Large Cross she was working on. That's really great tatting for someone who just started.
Jessica is on the the next row of the tea cloth which is comprised of half circles that fill in the spaces between motifs.
Nancy and her lovebird Abby wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. The Judith Connors Teapot and teacup pattern were tatted in Lizbeth size 20 Ocean Sunset.
SunshineCraft tatted Tatman's Modern Heart in DMC 20 and the Sweetheart earrings from the Yarnplayer's Boutique Tatting book in DMC cordonette 20.
Linda shares Rosette in Tatting, Gina had reworked for modern tatting.
Diane posted Susan Fuller's Heart's Desire for Valentine's Day.
Fox tatted one of Karey's patterns from Tatting Times, but instead of cutting off extra threads, she cut 2 working treads. Then she finished up this Iris Niebach pattern in #40 Tat-ilicious thread although after the first faultless round it gave her problems. Frivole's sweet little heart is a great pattern for practicing Catherine Wheel joining skills.
Sue tatted the Wandering Blooms Bracelet from Georgia Seitz' page in Lizbeth size 20 Black and in Coral Reef size 40 HDT from Tatskool.
Tattabugg posted a Valentine's Day heart, the very popular Heart's Desire by Susan Fuller.
Wanda tatted the heart that forms the bottom of the Heart's Honor Bookmark in Lizbeth size 20 threads in red and white. Then she did Jane Eborall's TIAS goat and a fob that holds a year 2000 US dime.
