I have now uploaded my next video tutorial....this time on how the join threads, after re-winding a shuttle, without leaving loose ends to sew in.


I have uploaded a new video to YouTube on how to start tatting in two colours without tying the thread together, thus avoiding having to sew the loose ends in.

Pattern for Green and White Classic Doily



 Here is the link to the PDF pattern of my Classic Doily - version 2.
I hope you all enjoy trying it out. If any tatters find any faults with the pattern please let me know so that I can put it right.

Green & white Classic Doily

 Amazing what a bit of steam ironing can achieve!

Only the outer edge of scallops to work now. It's already 15 inches wide!

More of the green and white Classic Doily

I will do about 4 rows of green chains and then repeat the scallop edging.

Classic Doily in green and white blocks


This is my Classic Doily (pattern in Free Pattern section) that I am doing in green and white size 20 thread

Saturday, 17 June 2017

I decided to do another of my New Year Doilies....the pattern PDF link is in my Free Pattern section. I made a mistake in round 10 (an extra picot) but instead of undoing it, I went with it and did double clunies in round 11.

Delicacy Doily - inadvertently edited!

This is my Delicacy Doily done in my husbands favourite colours of brown and cream. I didn't notice at first that I had accidently missed some of the rows out, but it seems to have worked very well with none of the ruffling that some tatters had experienced!

Scented Heart Sachet

I made this little scented heart sachet for Aimee Grace, my friend's granddaughter, as she loves girly things, to hang among her clothes. I scented it with a tropical refill for a car air freshener....it smells really pretty without being overpowering and when it fades she can dab it with any other perfume.

Tudor Rose

Here is my attempt at a Tudor Rose. I didn't notice until I had finished that it should only have had 5 petals and not 6!

Tudor rose project

I started this motif as a snowflake, but after nearly finishing it, it reminded me of a Tudor Rose. I've since looked up the Tudor Rose only to find that I need to swap the colours around. I will do the motif again to try and achieve a much closer likeness.

Little bells


These little bells started life as little angels but you know what it's like when you start designing....one thing very often turns into another!
