Marilee's Beaded Tatting Finery

Just thought I would pass this along.  Marilee Rockley's newest book is available as a pdf ebook.  It is on her Etsy site here.  I have already purchased it and will be working on a pattern this afternoon while watching football.

Newt Invasion

I have been testing split rings and single shuttle split rings (along with learning how to do loop tatted rings.  The pattern is from Anne Bruvoid called Netty the Newt.  I have always wanted to do this pattern, so now was a wonderful opportunity.  So I am now being invaded by newts as I test these elements.  The thread is all hand dyed (either Lizbeth, Tatilicious, Yarnplayer or my own).

I have also decided to participate in the 25 Motif Challenge this year.  The two at the bottom of the picture are the two I have done this month.  January is now complete for this challenge!

2014 TIAS - Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all of you out in Tatland.  Wishing everyone a joyous and happy year.

Jane Eborall has posted information on the 2014 TIAS (Tat It And See).  This will be my third year.  For those of you who have not tried one, every few days Jane posts snippets of the pattern to tat.  You may make guesses along the way and post your tatting.  It is fun to see the guesses and what thread everyone is using.  The TIAS starts this Monday, January 6.  Will be getting my shuttles ready today!
