Large

Large

    Found a pattern for a large tatting...quilters case.  I had to turn it into tatting stuff.  It's cool but a little big, good for traveling.  Still for short trips, I still like my large tatting cases.

Cord

Cord

    I made a smaller lucet for my finer threads.  I made this cord from pearl cotton #12.  Going to tat something on the end and use it as a bookmark.



     I've decided to tat Angela's butterfly on the end without the beads.

 Day 3...adding beads to the core thread.


 Day 4...adding beads to the outer edge.


 Day 5...another way to make the cord.  Day 6...adding a second thread.


 Day 7...adding a third cord.
