This is a first submission for Tatterbee. Welcome to our corner of Tat land! She writes, “I used #20 Lizbeth thread and a shuttle.  I couldn’t get out to buy a bead so looked around my “stash full of everything” and found the watch part and thought the little gold beads would help to perk it up a bit.”

Well done!

See you in class!

And finally, we have a great example of tatting around jewelry findings by Anne McCombs:

She adds that “Because my centerpiece was more rectangular than square, I found it necessary to  adjust the pattern by adding a second small ring at top and bottom.  I used Aunt Lydia’s #10 crochet cotton and a jewelry fitting from A. C. Moore.”

Great tatting! See you in class!

Homework submitted 2-2-2015

Anne McCombs had submitted her version of Marilee’s snowflake:

Melt Into Spring by Marilee Rockley

Melt Into Spring by Marilee Rockley

She writes, “I enjoyed the snowflake and learning the daisy picot, though I didn’t quite have the idea at first, and would probably do a better job if I made a second example. Oddly, I had the most trouble with the second round, although it was just straightforward tatting. The folded join was troublesome; for some reason, the ring thread kept getting entangled with the trefoil. This piece was done in Lizbeth #20. I ran out of time to make this week’s earring by Dagmar, though I’d still like to try.”

Nice work Anne. I can’t wait to see your next piece!
See you in class!
