My last Christmas motif!! It is a snowflake from Tatting 2000, The Ring of tatters book. I used no 20 thread,
Happy Christmas to all who read my blog,
Special wishes to all who instructed me on swapping to Blogger!! so much easier to use,
Can anyone now instruct how to delete the other one or is it always there? I suppose I could just go through and delete the pics and put this url on for anyone who wanted to browse!

Bridget also sent me Valdani, the Yellow is Valdani Perle Cotton, I'm sure you recognise Mary Konier's Honesty edging
The motif is one of those that just grew to the size of the thread length, that one is Valdani 35 the colour is Mango/Kiwi/Papaya, Now that is a dish I could enjoy!
I also had a lovely postcard from Bridget of Wurzburg just at sunset....gorgeous!! She also wished me Happy tatting , and may you always have a little thread in your shuttles.

I am so pleased that I have all my tatting photos on here now. Hopefully they won't disappear at will! The round motif with a tail is a gorgeous thread from Suetta called Raspberry sherbet, hand died, it is really lovely. The black bookmark is the scarf that I put on the old lady doll. The silver motif was going to be a snood for my long hair...but I had it cut. It is from Mary Maynards book using 4 stitches everywhere.
The pink anchor is from a little motif I was sent, I made it too big so added beads and called it a bookmark, they were intended as pins in aid of breast cancer, but I have been selling the bookmarks at twice the price!

The lady in the black stole I am sure that most will recognise the pattern, it is from Mary Koniers bookTatting with visual patterns, The cross I made on the coach whilst touring Belgium.Multi coloured piece is my shuttle emptyings, hexagnol motif from Ring of Tatters book 2000, and the Christmas ring is from a pattern by Jennifer Williams.
The little tablecloth is about three inches square, My daughter Helen made it for me for the dolls house crochted with two strands of sewing cotton in the pineapple pattern, she also made the bag for me to tat on coach rides! The hankie I won 3rd prize this year, 2007, at the Pentyrch show, I was very pleased, you can't tell on this photo but I hadn't quite finished it.

It is taking me a while to get my head around it. We haven't had too good a fortnight here. Some charming person in a lorry took off my passenger side wing and tyre and would you believe a chunk out of the alloy wheel too. Then just went merrily on his way without stopping. By the time the nieghbours and Ron went out to see what the bang was, all that could be seen was the tail end of a lorry, going at a rate of knots around the corner of the street. I hope he likes the blue paint he took with him!!
