Round 6 of Mystery TAL

Another quick update!  Round 6 of Mystery TAL done :).  I am really liking these easy rounds as it makes it easier to tat while watching TV in the evenings.  My only problem is that I think I will run out of thread before I finish.  I'm thinking I might have to add a colour in round 8 and tat the last round in the new colour.

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Round 5 of Mystery TAL

Quick update!  Round 5 of Mystery TAL done.  Luckily my mistakes in round 4 did not affect Round 5.  Moving on to round 6 while I'm on a roll.  So far the doily is laying flat.  I'm having so much fun with this doily :).

Round 4 of Mystery TAL

For the Mystery TAL, I decided to continue on with the same colour.  So far I have done split chains and a split ring to move up to the next round.  I finally ran out of thread in my shuttle but luckily I had enough to finish Round 4 :).
Doh!  I just realised I made a mistake in Round 4 all the way around!  Will continue and hope the mistake will not affect the overall look of the doily.

Motif 11 - 25 Motif Challenge

Recently I test tatted a gorgeous snowflake pattern named Polaris (variation) by Robin Perfetti at Tatting by the Bay.  To find out more and to see more pics of Robin's patterns, please visit her Tatting by the Bay blog and have a look at her Design Gallery :).


This was so much fun to tat and tats up really quick too.  Will definitely be tatting this again but maybe with a smaller thread :).

This pattern is sold in a snowflake pack with 4 other gorgeous snowflake patterns.  The snowflake pack is available for purchase from Robin's Etsy's tattingbythebay store.

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Joining in the 2015 Beginner's Mystery TAL

A bit late but I decided to join in the 2015 Beginner's Mystery Tat-A-Long.  I actually started last week but made a mistake in the first round.  Below is my second attempt.  I'm nearly finished with Round 2.  Trying to decide whether to do a split chain to move into Round 3 or use this opportunity to change colours (cut and tie).

My Beaded Damselfly

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Queensland Tatters meet up.  Judith Connors gave a lesson on Inverted Tatting and we tatted her Beaded Damselfly.  I finally figured out how to do inverted tatting.   Here's my finished Beaded Damselfly.  It was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  Thanks Judith :).

LOL the poor thing looks like it has big bug eyes and a broken wing!  Luckily my 6yo daughter loves it.  Now to tat this again using smaller beads for my other daughter :).

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).
