Saturday was a gathering of the Tollway Tatters. The first three photographs are tatted motifs by Diane (Lace-Lovin' Librarian) from (link HERE)
Tatting PATTERNS - Snowflake Variations
Not wanting to repeat her post .... think of this as kind of part two of Lace-lovin' Librarian's blog post!
Please visit Diane's blog post, A Fun Filled Saturday, ( link HERE ) as she has GREAT photos. Diane blogs over at Lace-lovin'Librarian.
This is the front cover of the tatting book: Snowflake Variations by Robin Perfetti. I paged thru & thought the diagrams were spectacular! Looks like I need to add this title to the tatting library!
Sue Anna brought kits for all of the tatters. It had Karey Solomon's pattern "Easiest Ice Blossom" - with beads, ice drop, and size 10 Yarnplayer's HDT "Spooky" .
This one was tatted by Denise. Denise used smaller beads and size 20 tatting fiber. It is interesting how the different sized thread and color combinations make the pattern look different!!! When Denise was home, she sent me this picture of her drops:
Denise also found some lovely drops to share - and a small bag to match!!! Sweet ....
Below, a pumpkin Barbara tatted.
Below, another bead in the center - tatted by Barbara. So pretty!!!!
Barbara sent me this photograph 10/26 ... of her embellished drops:
In this photo, Barbara embellished the two ice drops on the left - with glitter polish and underneath some images from a photographer (or photographer magazine). She also shared a container of what reminded me of FLAT marbles - these two have what reminded me of yellow flowers! The larger one in the middle was shared by Mary .... a better image below.
See how COOL these are? They are embellished glass pieces with glass ink! Made and shared by Mary. (photos above and below). I don't know if Mary has a blog - I probably should have asked her.
Mary was needle tatting (photo on Diane's blog post.). Also, Nancy was needle tatting a lovely necklace. Was natural color with pastel beads. So pretty! And thank you Ana for the wonderful Honey beverage - was great for the drive home!
Shuttle by Design - it is called DMC Diamant, metallic thread, 35m/38.2 yd .
I added some more to my tatted edge (#1143). I keep it on a Magical edging keeper -- better image here. I find this little tool keeps my edge stored nicely!!! As for the pattern ... This tatting pattern can be found in the Helping Hands Newsletter, Vol 20 issue#3, pg 10 -- Fall 2012. Originally published: Old and New Designs in Tatting by Sophie T. LaCroix, Book No. 11.
