Tat Days 2014

Well another session of the Palmetto Tat Days is over.  I had a great time.  Learned to do Baubles, Mignonette and perfected my split chain technique.  Met Karen Brovard, saw Ruth Perry and met up with fellow tatters from previous years and met new ones.  I am looking  forward to next year.

Here are pictures of two of the projects I finished. 

The Bauble will be forwarded to Jane Eborall for her "Exclusive Tatting Club" for Baubles.  Jane, I am fine as an Associate for now.  The mouse is on the list for full membership!  The bauble is made in size 10 hand-dyed by me.

The block tatted ornament was a first for tatting with a charm aka doodad.  Very easy.  Martha had great instructions.  This is size 20, Livi's Ballet Shoes is the variegated by Tatilicious, Hot Pink was hand-dyed by me.

I have submitted the ornament to our fair along with the Renulek Spring doily, chandelier earrings and my tatted peacock which I framed.  Will see next week if any receive ribbons.  If not, that is okay.  I have my free ticket for the fair!

I finished Linda Davies Star Attraction Doily.  I used Lizbeth size 10.  This was given to the Silent Auction at Tat Days.  The picture shows the doily along with the finished peacock.  A dime was used for size comparison.


  1. Everything looks great!!! And such fabulous colors!!! :)

  2. Thank you , Phyll for this understandable explanations about tat-days . You are much clearer than Jane, who is obviously jet-lagged. All this tatting is great and has super colors! You will win.

  3. One thing about fairs, sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. Last year I entered a 3-d tatted ornament and did not win anything for it. We don't have a Tatting category so I am very creative in the categories available so I can enter as many tatting items as possible!
