I haven't had much time to tat or do any other type of needlework since school started a week ago, but I try to set aside a little time each day. I've started "Eleonora" by Iris Niebach, but I haven't had enough brain power to concentrate on it. I think I need to borrow one of Jane's brain cells!
Anyway, I decided something nice and easy was in order, so I decided to tat Design 1 from Tatting: 60 Original Lace Treasures by Christel Weidmann. I love the way it turned out! It's a shuttle only pattern, and I used one Clover shuttle full of size 20 Berry Parfait hdt from LadyShuttleMaker. It's about 3" across with a 1" opening. I think it would make a lovely little picture frame with my granddaughter's smiling face peeking through the lace. I guess that means I'll have to make three... one each for Eva, Lily, and the new baby due any time now!
Oops! I spy a missing picot! Wait! It's not missing... I joined in the wrong spot! Oh, well! It's going to have to stay the way it is. Maybe that blind man on the galloping horse will never know the difference! ; )

What a cute idea for a picture frame! I'd think your grandkids would look adorable peeking through that!ReplyDelete
I think Lily's picture would go great with her blond hair.ReplyDelete
How pretty! Believe me, most of us that admire tatting and don't do it won't know where your mistake is :)ReplyDelete
Maybe you can adjust the number of stitches or the number of rings, so that you can have different sizes for different photos - some bigger, some smaller. Would look great for scrapbooking.ReplyDelete
What a rich and deeply colored thread! Lovely!ReplyDelete
