Tea and tatting seem to go hand-in-hand. Every morning I drink one, sometimes, two pots of tea and tat for a few hours. I'm not a black tea drinker, but enjoy green, oolong, and white teas.
To go along with my tea, I've been tatting tea pots from Martha Ess's book, "Tea is for Tatting". This is a wonderful book with ten tea pots. Some of the patterns, also have matching cups, saucers, sugar bowls, and creamers. You can find her books on her website or on her blog.
Here are some of the teapots I've tatted from her book. I accent some of the teapots with beads. The "Tiny Round Teapot" makes a great pair of earrings, when it's tatted with size 80 thread.
