Tatting on the train is by far my favorite way to travel with tatting!I started Marilee Rockley's "Arches" on the train to Bath last week and made great strides on the way to Edinburgh today. Also, I flipping love the UK. Seriously, can somebody find us jobs here so we can live here...

Last year, I had the privilege of demonstrating tatting at the Historic Skills Fair. It was a nice relaxing day of tatting, teaching, and chatting. In fact, it was such a relaxed atmosphere that I forgot to take any photos until the event was over. The mission overlooks a marvelous view and I had...

Well, once again you have Grace to thank for reminding me to update my blog.Sigh. Sorry!If I actually posted every time I thought about it, there would be multiple posts a day.

For once, my totally inadequate sewing skills came to the rescue. I was not pleased with the curved edge of the hankie and none of the borders I attempted worked because of it. The last one I began was adequate, but still not pleasing enough for me to continue.Finally, it struck me that I had to...

I've never met Grace Tyler in real life, but I'm pretty sure if I ever did, we would be friends.She has such nice ways of popping in and reminding me that somebody else is out there and interested in what I'm doing......or not doing, as the case may be.My last post was, a couple weeks...

Yes, this pattern will surely do! I like it and the thread is now behaving, though it is VERY thin. It is a Sulky Blendable, in 12 weight. Not recommended for the faint if heart!Pattern found in The Craft of Tatting by Bessie M. Attenborough

Tatting has been frustrating since I finished the Spring Doily. I tried many threads and many patterns in an attempt to find a suitable border for the hanky sent to me by Kristen in Russia - here.I even ordered a Sulky thread as I did not have a proper purple for the edging. However, this...
