I can't help myself. I love playing with my Doodle Ice Drop pattern. Today I tatted with a donut.

Then, I moved on to a green button. I think it's a pretty good color match!

Finally, I finished with a cream colored button. That's the end of that ball of green. I truly have way too much thread. I think using it to tat ornaments is a great way of using up partial balls. I don't have to worry about dye lots, and I have something pretty to show for my efforts. Besides, I need to work through my stash of buttons, glass gems, and donuts!

Look what arrived in the mail today! I've been eagerly awaiting this book. No, I don't speak a word of Italian, but I am thrilled to have Edda Guastalla's new book to browse through. I'm a big fan of visual patterns, so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to work on these designs. Let the fun begin!


  1. Great tatted pieces!!! :)
    Oooh, I am sure you will have something beautiful tatted from that book!! :)

  2. Yes, excellent way to use up partial balls. Those are really pretty. The book looks very exciting!

    1. My problem is that I have so many partial balls! Luckily, I have more than enough glass gems and buttons!

  3. Here's to using stash items! That book looks like it's rich with patterns and ideas.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
