Mousey

Mousey

      I had to buy this book because of the mouse on front.  It's "Tatting Treats" by Pam Palmer.   Here is a revised version of "The Tatter of Glouchester".  I wanted a full version of the mouse.  The mousey was tatted with size 30 thread.

Tatting

Tatting

      I bought a set of clear stamps off of E-Bay.  They consisted of crochet, bobbin lace and tatting.  The corner pieces are tatting and the middle one looks like crochet.  I used embossing crystals and a lighter to melt them.  You can see on the left side I got a little too close with the flame and singed the side.  Just adds to the uniqueness of the card.  The card was a birthday card to one of my tatting students.

    Just finished a small batch of fish tatting shuttles.  Currently working on 74 shuttles, but just finished the fish.  The shuttles are 3" long, 1" wide and 1/4" thick (the bottom fish is 3/8" thick).  They are made of Popular, Red Oak and Maple.

Scraps

Scraps

    Using up, left-over, Lizbeth twisted thread on a shuttle.  I ran out of thread, so the motif wasn't completely finished.  Looks good anyway.  The pattern is from "Tatting with Visual Patterns", by Mary Konior...called Masquerade.
