Lagniappe Continued


This is my home away from home project.  More than halfway complete.  It has been a somewhat slow project.

Also been working on the banquet favors for Palmetto Tat Days.  About 2/3rds complete with the tatting.  If I would keep my focus better, I would be further along.

TIAS 2021

 Jane Eborall has done it once again.  TIAS (Tat It and See) is now complete. I used hand dyed thread I had in my stash.  I can definitely see tatting this again.  It is not to late to start if you need a fun project to tat.  Once complete, submit your picture so others may see it.  There are tatters all over the world that join in the fun.

Playing with Dyes


Was able to get out my dyes this past week.  Decided to play and make color blocks.  Using Turquoise, Grape and Yellow, this is what was done.  Was looking for a specific color of blue/purple.  Think I have found it.  Pretty colors for solids or variegated thread.  More color blocks are on the way.  Interesting how just a tweak in one color can change the outcome.

Lagniappe Doily

After four starts because I did not read the pattern correctly (kept joining instead of putting a small joining picot), Round 5 is finally finished.  This is my home away from home project.  Therefore, I am not in a hurry to finish.  Onto Round 6!

Alenalea Rako is hosting an Advent Calendar Tat-along  2020 through Facebook.  It started yesterday; however, if you haven't joined, it is not to late.  A pattern will be given each day.  Part of the fun is it will use up left over thread left on shuttles or little pieces that you may have left over here and there.

Jane Eborall will do hosting a Tat Along starting in January.  Have missed starting a new year off with tatting.  It is wonderful she is doing this again and very thankful for her time and effort that it takes to host.

This is Marilee Rockley’s “Dissent” necklace.  My daughter asked me to tat it for her.  She then framed it.  Necklace is a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, US Supreme Court Judge, who passed away earlier this year.
