Challenge Motifs 4 & 5

I did a little tatting this week while classes are on fall break. I'm working on some small snowflakes to give away this Christmas. Patti Duff is providing the patterns. Her book MINITATS has loads of great ideas that don't take very long to work up. Size 20 thread worked great to make ornaments that are about 1.75 to 2 inches in width. #26 & #43 are complete.

Books are waiting to be read and papers need to be written, so I'd better get back to work. Finals are just 10 days away.

Blooming Trellis Bookmark corrections

Members of the online tatting class found a few mistakes in the pattern and had some great suggestions for improvements in the instructions as well. The link at the side will take you to the corrected and improved version of the pattern. Thanks for the help, classmates.

Blooming Trellis Bookmark pattern

The online tatting class covered my Blooming Trellis Bookmark today. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it, but Georgia did a great job.
