Save the date!

Tollway Tatters will be meeting on Saturday, March 18. If you're in the Chicago area, we would love to have you join us! We meet at the Hinsdale Oasis on 294 at 10 a.m. We always have a lot of fun!

Now that I'm working on length, I will post pictures of my sister-in-law's runner as I finish a row of three motifs... if I remember! The pattern is Eightsome Reel from A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior. the thread is size 20 Lizbeth #693, Linen Med.

I really didn't need any more gems for tatting Ice Drops, but when I searched 20 mm coins on Etsy, I saw these beautiful pieces and just had to have them!

I also found these. Just think of the possibilities!

I tatted one Ice Drop ornament today.

I also tatted my first Ice Drop pin.

 A little bar pin stitched to the back, and I'm all set for St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Looking great on that runner!! :)
    Neat "stones" for your Ice Drops!! :)
    Great Ice Drop, and Ice Drop Pin!! :)

  2. Ooh, I like those peacock feather ones! The runner is looking great.

  3. See you on the 18th! Congrats on the runner progress. Those peacock stones sure do look tempting ♥

  4. I love those peacock ones,
    The runner is looking beautiful,
    Looking forward to seeing the ice drops with the discs

  5. Ooh, I'm going to be in Chicagoland that day anyway! I won't be able to make it right at 10 - how late do you think you all will stay?

    1. We would love to have you join us, Julie! We usually stay until 3 or 4. We did leave at 1:30 one time because of snow, but it's supposed to be sunny and in the upper 40s on Saturday.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
