There are on their way to Georgia Seitz for the 2013 Tat Days quilt.  The littles ones were great to use up my bits of dyed samples.  Will probably do more of them to give away while I am out in public and for the  Palmetto Tatting Guild to give away at the SC State Fair.  Here is the link for the pattern.  Used size 10 thread for all dragonflies except the orange/yellow one - that was size 20.

A Tardis bookmark in size 30 is in process.  I will be sending this to my niece for her wedding next April.  It was an idea to perhaps attach it to her garter!  I guess this could be used for the something new and blue.

I am still waiting for instructions for a Tat Days project.  Needs to be completed prior to class.

I have an idea for a pair of tatted earrings.  This will be my second design.  I need to sit down and figure out the stitching, tat it and then diagram/write the pattern.  This may be this weekends project.

I think after that I will proceed with my proficiency course work while adding an occasional project.

New Additions to Tat Library

Here is a photo of my new books.  I am so excited.  I have looked through them and see lots of tatting in my future.  I need to now find more time to sit, relax and tat.  Too many projects, too little time!

Time to Blog

I am still around tatting in the evenings.  I am preparing a couple of items for the silent auction for Tat Days.  I have a bookmark done and the doily was just completed (needs blocking).  Planning on some HDT and have a couple of colorways in mind.  We will see how they turn out in the next month or so.

In the meantime, I found some samples of edgings that I completed last year.  They were going to be part of a fund raiser for Tat Days but fell through and never happened.  Picture is to the right.  They are edgings from an Ann Orr book on tatting.   We were to pick edgings and put our own twist on them.  Enjoyed this challenge.
