Some tatting finishes

Ok, I said I wouldn't start anything new....I really haven't except for tatting. I'm doing these so I can get ready for the State Fair. My tatting group has decided to enter our tatting into the Great State Fair of Texas this year. There hasn't been any tatting at the fair in several years so we thought we would change that. So here are some things I've made in the past 2 weeks....I can't seem to think of anything else right now. It's like a virus. I enjoy doing this cause I can sit in front of the TV and do it at the same time...I have got to start my quilting back soon and I week.

This heart is called Heart's Desire and is a pattern by Sue Fuller. I got it off the Georgia Seitz here to go there.

This heart is from the book Learn to Tat by Janette Baker

These are a few little pieces I've done just to learn how to do things.

This is called Hope and is out of Mary Konior's book, Tatting with Visual Patterns.
The blue one on the left was made with size 10 thread, the smaller version was a size 20 Flora thread. I didn't like the size 10 with the bigger picots. I like it better in the smaller version but wished I made it with a solid color instead of variegated thread. I really like her book and want to make several more if not all the patterns out of it.

This is a little bookmark I made off of Yarnplayers blog. Click
here for the link

Now, this last picture is something I'm working on now. This is a necklace I'm working on adding beads to it. Our assignment for the week was to do something with beads. Anything we wanted to do. So I found this pattern also on Georgia Seitz's website and it is called Filigree Necklace by Susan Phillipo (a/k/a TatWolf) and here is a link to that pattern. It is a fun, easy pattern for split rings. I really like this Mexicana thread by J P Coates Royale color to work with.

I think it is so cool how doing the tatting with different aspects even something as small as picots can make such a huge difference in how the piece looks in the end. Your work is quite lovely. Thank you for posting it.
I love the red and white heart and am possibly going to make one of those before VD. hehe.

Hi Linda, those are all very pretty. I wish I had the time to learn to tat. Some day I will just have to give it a try.
