3 Hearts Design

After taking Sharon's Design class and Sue's Tatting Design class, I jumped into the Tat-It yahoo groups daisy design challenge.  I needed a break from projects I have been doing.  With two shuttles that had extra thread on them, this 3 Hearts design is what I came up with.  It took three starts and four paper designs to come up with this one.  Needs a little blocking but I am pleased with my official second attempt at designing (first to show the public).  It measures approximately 2 1/4 inches at its widest.

Class Projects Posted for Tat Days 2013

The Palmetto Tatters Guild have posted their class project pictures for Tat Days 2013 in September.  It is going to be hard to choose as the projects are really nice.  Last year was my first. If you have never been it is a well worth experience.  It was enjoyable and fun.  It was nice to meet those in the tatting world I only read about and have made several friends to correspond with afterwards.  I have marked it on my calendar as I am hoping to go again this year.

Tardis Bookmark

The Glass Mat was accepted delightfully by my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.

Just finished the filled-in version of Anne Bruvold's Tardis Bookmark.  I modified it a little bit more to have two open windows only.  It is a gift to someone who has watched five cats while daughter was on vacation.  The bookmark was done in size 20 hand-dyed a royal blue (although it was not quite as royal as I wanted).  I will be making another in size 30 to be attached to a wedding garter for my niece for her wedding next year.
