Little Tatting pieces

Learning & mastering another tatting technique called Wrapping a plastic ring with double-stitches. At the initial stage, i had some problems but manage to overcome it. Thanks, Sheila Dutton for sending the cabone rings to me. And for the tutorial, u can go to http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/2007/09/wrapping-plastic-ring-with-double.html. Thanks to Jon, for making the tutorial so easy to understand.

So now both the tatted pieces are in my doter's possession and have to tat another 6 more pieces as she want to make it into a key chain or bookmark, to be given to her teachers for Teacher's Day.

Below is a motif piece. Its a freebie. I have tatted another 3 pieces to make it into a doily. Its a simple pattern and quite fast to complete 1 motif. (but it still takes me a whole day to complete one. hehehe....too many other distractions).

I hope to tat tis motif again but using only white thread and making it into a bigger piece for my coffee table.

Tis is a flower piece called Stargazer Lily. Have tatted 5 pieces, 1 more piece to tat and and join all to get my flower. Its a beautiful piece and I got the pattern from http://www.toptattyhead.blogspot.com/. Such a creative person.


Happy tatting, crocheting, crosstitching and any other hobbies to all my friends.

I see you have used the new threads! I like this Manuela thread colour, so sweet. The cabone rings, doily and flower are turning out real good.

Very nice! I really like the tatting over the cabone rings. I'll have to check Jon's site for the directions. How big will your mat be? I love the colors you have chosen for all your pieces!

Beautiful pieces! I like how you showed it up next to a ball point pen to show the size. Very pretty! I've heard that the splitchain stitches are done the same way...so now I hope to cover a cabone ring or plastic craft ring next! :)

Well done! :)

All your motifs are lovely! The thread colors are lovely!

Hello Ellen. Thanks for dropping by. Wow! u recognize the thread ye. Need to purchase another ball. tis colour is very sweet.

Thanks Sal. don't stop stashing. hehehe.....

Hello Eva & Natrah. Not that diffuclt to tat once u know the techniques.(imagine tis statement coming from someone who nearly gave up tatting) For a start, u can go to Jon's blog for the tutorial. Print out the tutorial,spread out on the bed, and follow the instructions. the tutorial is easy to follow. That's how i started and the rest is learning from my cyber friends. Oooops! don't forget to have your shuttle n thread. hehehe.

Hello Diane. Thanks. Yes, Jon's tutorial is easy to follow. Am not sure how big my mat will be. I will just tat and stop when i am satisfied with the size or when i am bored doing the same motif.
For the ring, i used Manuela (just purchased from Ellen) and the motifs i used dmc cebelia ercu n pink colour.

Thanks TattingChic. I put up the ball pen so that we can see the actual size. Cos sometimes we get the impression that it is a big doily. Oh, so far have not done any piece that have split chain. Mayb another technique that i have to learn.

Thanks Mus. No time for hibernation la. too many WIPs. Am crocheting my doter's blanket (she says that the more i prolong her blanket, the bigger is have to crochet) and tatting in between. And weekends trying to do my xs.
