Insertion and edging

This is an insertion I recently did. I like its density. I did it faster than I thought, with a thread #30. It’s a design from N. Ellison.

And this… is one of my first edgings (or is it the first?) which I tatted in a towel a long time ago but never finished it until now. And the only thing left to do was to finish the threads. It looks like a first edging, I find a lot of “things” in it now, but ahhhh… I like it, I like it, I did it when I was a beginner and it took me several days… I love it just for that. 🙂 It’s a design from Dillmont’s “Tatting” made in size 60 I think.

Doily tat-along 4

I’ve also done some more progress with the doily, and before this starts to look like a photolog I’ll tell its little story. When I get to class early and have to sit and wait, when I’m sitting at the odontologist’s waiting room, when I’ve just come back from class and need to take those five minutes to relax before going on, I pick the doily and try to do a little something. But lately this pretty doily started to be a bit problematic: it doesn’t want to keep its shape. It’s a total rebel! Yes, I did try pressing it. Still doesn’t want to listen to me. 😦 And the chains don’t look like I expected, so I was going to take the picture: it was going to be the picture showing it after the scissor had split it into two or more parts. He! That would teach her! But then I just took a deep breath, thought ‘this is my first doily’, looked at it again and finally forgave its life…

Motifs

Long time since my last post… Well, I didn’t do much tatting, so there’s not much to tell about. Not much but…

 

This one I tried with a different thread, it’s like size 2 (ok, maybe about size 20) and a little difficult to work with, but I liked the colour. It’s medallion 135 from N. Ellison’s Lessons in Tatting.

I also wanted to tat a heart, so I started to search for a nice online pattern and I decided to do a Teri Dusenbury‘s design:

 

What else? Ahh, this tiny nothing, made with the typical thread left on the shuttle:

 

Very simple, but it’s tiny and I find it cute. 🙂

 I know, it’s not much… I told you!

Uniform

This is the destiny the tatted laces and the centers of the doilies had. I think I should try to get better pictures of these. It’s a uniform for special occasions.

  

And here is a close up:

 

 

And this is the back belt, with the same pattern of the lace:

 

This is before ironing or anything!!

I’ve been busy with this but now that it’s over I can go back to my… pretty doily!!

Blocking

Two centers of the pretty doily as snowflakes, being blocked.
