Tat Chat Heart

I don't tat hearts very often. They're just not my cup of tea. However, this one caught my eye. The Tat Chat Heart pattern is by LaRae Mikulecky. I think it would look better in a solid color, but Angel's Love #151 was right my my chair, so that's what I used.

What to tat next? I think I'll work on my Primrose Path doily tonight while the Super Bowl is on. I really don't care which team wins. I just enjoy watching a good game!

Plenty of time to tat

Dave was working on Alison's downstairs bathroom, and Alison was busy running the kids here, there, and everywhere. So, I had plenty of time to tat!

My newest Spinning Wheel glass mat is in size 20 Lizbeth, Angel's Love #151.

Before we left this morning, I managed to finish the second primrose motif for my Primrose Path doily. I do like the red, white, and blue together!

Primrose motif

I've been looking through some of my favorite pattern books, and I'm always drawn to my Mary Konior books first. I love her Primrose Path pattern from A Pattern Book of Tatting. So, I decided to see what it would look like in red, white and blue. I think I like it!

Wedgewood DK Spinning Wheel

I finished it! I do love this shade of blue.

I've been leafing through my pattern books, trying to decide what to work on next. There are so many patterns I want to try, but I need something simple. Maybe I'll try another hanky edging. For tonight, I think I'll just take a mine break from tatting.

Keep on spinning!

This week's Spinning Wheel glass mat is coming along great! I'm using Lizbeth size 20, Wedgewood DK #656. I do love this color!

Every girl needs a backup!

Since I rarely do one of anything at one time, including reading a book, I decided I needed a backup bookmark. This is the same pattern as the one I completed yesterday, but I think it looks completely different in a solid color (Lizbeth Salmon Med #628). The flowers motif isn't as obvious to me.

I decided to braid the tassel. What do you think?

I needed a bookmark

So I tatted this one from the back of my Moonlit tatting shuttle package in Lizbeth Peacock Blues. Now I'm ready for a new book!
