Cathy de Greef encourages us to design our own square, tat a few, and send to her (by March 1, 2018) for her project. Just a few short days to do so.

Melanie tatted a few of Cathy’s square:

But hasn’t had luck in coming up with her own square. She took time to tat a few hearts in response to events of the past week:

Hearts of Hope by Anne Bruvold

Usha has finished off the vintage doily with another round using dot picots:

Usha Star rd 3

She writes, “I tried to tat it in one pass but couldn’t climb out after third row. I found the dot picots give ornamental look to the star as compared to normal picots giving much filled look to it.” The filled in look is quite pleasing to my eye.

See you in class!

Please guard your health and those around you. Even if you’ve had a flu shot, when you’re sick, take care so those who cannot get immunized are safer.

Looking forward to a great year! See you in class!

Usha has added another round to her update of the vintage doily:

Tatted Star adapted by Usha

She worked this beauty using mock rings so she could replace normal picots with dot picots. I agree with her that the beauty of dot picots stands out. She does comment that it takes time to tat and needs effort too. I think it looks well worth the effort.

See you in class!

Usha has been delving into vintage patterns. She sends us this lovely star:

Tatted Star adapted by Usha Shah

She replaced the normal picots with dot picots and used two colors for contrast. It is based on a pattern in Barbour’s Prize Needlework Series #2. We look forward to further rounds as she completes them.

We also look forward to the return of classes. Please take care during this flu season and keep tatting.

See you in class!

Shirley has been experimenting with dropped picots:

Shirley dropped picot

dropped picot by Shirley

Her explanation made so much sense, I’m including it:

Regarding the vintage edging done in two rows with picots dropped to the back on the top row.  I have done a few inches of the top row by itself using a technique described by Jennifer Williams (ROT Newsletter, 69, Autumn, 2014).  The picot is made “a bit longer than you want the dropped picot to be.”  It is then folded “downwards between the shuttle thread and the thread that is on your hand.”

Because the ds that makes the picot slides out of view (down and to the back), I made more 4 ds (not 3) after positioning the picot.

She used an old standby for Holiday tatting, Size #10 Lizbeth Christmas thread.

Next week classes resume!
