Been There, Done Tat ~ Part 3

Although it was not technically part of Tat Days, Lisa did offer two needle lace classes with Victoria Ong on Sunday. I've been wanting to learn needle lace for a long time, and Denise was interested also, so we signed up. Victoria's new book is available exclusively at Tatting Corner.

It took me quite a while to get the feel for making the knots, but I was happy with my progress, and now I feel confident with practicing on my own.

Dave came in with broccoli before leaving for work this morning, so my first task of the day was to prepare nine quarts of broccoli for the freezer. It looks like time for peppers next!

I've added a third Masquerade motif to my doily. I don't think this is going to turn out as I originally thought, but that's okay. Today's motif is in Lizbeth #680, Spring Green.

Of course I had to tat a matching Ice Drop!

I finished another bag today... three down, thirteen to go!

I finished the day by tatting Beaded Bloom by Tamie Alliss. My last join looks a little funky, and my chains don't snug up, but I get the idea now, and I have plenty of beads that I can practice with!


  1. Wow!!! You seem to do so much and so quickly!!! :) Everything looks wonderful! Have a restful night!!

  2. Phew, a very productive day! The needle lace looks very interesting, well done for getting the hang of it. Ice drops with needle lace flowers around the edge?

    1. It may take me a while to get good enough to put needle lace flowers around Ice Drops, but I'll keep the idea in mind!

  3. Love your flower bloom, beautiful ice drop
    Love the motifs great colours.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
