Tat Along Progress and Tatter Needs Test Tatters

First, let me share a request for test tatters that I came across today. Jessica needs test tatters for a chocker that is completed in one pass. Drop in here to volunteer. It sounds interesting. While I'm having trouble finding enough time to finish the projects I've already got going, I look forward to seeing some of the tatted samples. It looks like it will be a lovely piece to tat and to wear.

While waiting for the leaf pattern to post for the Tat Along project, I tatted up three different sets of rosettes--purple, red, and a lovely variegated color. The tatting of the rosettes went very fast. Not so the leaves! I've finished only one leaf! I love the pattern, but I have to pay close attention to it as I work. Maybe after I've done a few it will come easier. I noticed that some of the other participants have had problems getting the pieces to fit together properly to produce a flat piece of lace.  Now that I've caught up reading your blogs, I'll go start leaf #2.

I love the colors of your rosettes, especially the blue! I attempted my first leaf today... unsuccessfully. I'll try again, but I'm really bummed that the leaf isn't quite as easy as the rosette. : )

Your colors are beautiful!
I also wanted to tell you that I enjoy wearing the E/R jackets I purchased from you. I love them.

The rosettes are so pretty! I will have to try one, too. Thanks for commenting about my choir on my blog. We already have another engagement--at a Life Care Center--in March.

I'm amazed at all the rosettes people are turning out. Did you get all the test tatters you needed?

JB, I'm so glad you are enjoying them. I've made some in soft pearlescent pastels for spring. I need to get them up on Etsy.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

VicTats, I was not the one looking for test tatters. I was sharing a link to another tatter's blog.
