Getting ready for a celebration!

We're getting close to 500 members at The Tatting Forums, and I decided that in celebration I'd tat up some stars! This one is my favorite from Kaye B. Judt's Oh My Stars! This is a great little book, and it teaches some wonderful techniques in very simple motifs. I haven't mastered all of them, in fact I haven't tried all of them! I guess I'll have to see how many I can make out of what's left of my Juicy Watermelon. After that, I'll have to decide how I'll use my stars... decorate a denim bag, a t-shirt, a scarf, a quilt top? How would you use your stars?

Pattern: "Gemini" from Oh My Stars! by Kaye B. Judt
Size 20 Lizbeth, Juicy Watermelon #156
Finished size 2 1/4"


  1. Five hundred! Wow - that's great!

    I use Kaye's book a lot when I forget a technique, as she very explains a whole lot of them so simply, in such understandable language in this little gem of a book.

    Fox : )

  2. What a wonderful watermelon star!!! :)

  3. If I had extra five-sided stars, I would stitch them together to make a larger design. (It is something I have been wanting to do, but haven't yet been focused enough to make multiple five-sided motifs.)

    You're almost out of Juicy Watermelon thread?!? And summer is right around the corner...

  4. It IS beautiful and does look like a Juicy Watermelon!
    I need to get that book...

  5. Felicidades por esos 500 seguidores, es un número muy grande, y sigue tejiendo cosas lindas con el hilo color sandía, quedan muy primaverales

  6. Love the colour of the thread and the star is lovely!
