Round 5

I subbed at the high school today, which meant I had a great deal of time for tatting. With the technology available in schools these days, it's so much easier for the classroom teachers to have projects that the students can work on. I did get to answer a few questions about research, but the students basically worked on their own, which meant that I was able to complete round 5 of Renulek's Wiosna 2018!

While watching the Olympics tonight, I attend another Ice Drop. I tried longer chains on the encasement round. I don't like them. I think they look sloppy. I think I'll stick with a maximum of 10 double stitches for my chains.

This shuttle is one of my favorites. It was custom made for me by Dave Stanbrough of Grizzly Mountain Arts after my dad passed away ten years ago.

The shuttle is beautifully made, and it is wonderfully smooth. My mom has been my inspiration for all fiber related crafts. She has tried so many things and has always done beautiful work. Dad was so supportive of her, buying or making her the tools she needed for her pursuits. When I showed interest in things that Mom was doing, Dad supported me as well. Luckily for me, Dave is also extremely supportive. How did Mom and I get so lucky?


  1. Wow, you're ahead of me already! That shuttle is very special.

  2. This round does seem like it is easy peasy mine is half way. And I think you need to make a poster naming all the lizbeth colors with a drop beside each one i told Tim to do that with the king tut threads too😄

  3. What a special shuttle! And you are really cruising on the Spring Doily - good for you. It's definitely going to get more difficult to keep up soon.

  4. Your doily and Ice Drop are both wonderful!!! :)

  5. Beautiful and speical shuttle,
    Beautiful ice drop
    Nice to ba able to tat and teach at the same time, the Spring mat is looking lovely, look forward to seeing how you progress with it.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
