Finally…sort of…

The past week has been rough in this house. Both kids home from school on spring break, and all of us sick. Every. Single. One. Unbelievable. Well, maybe not so unbelievable. If you have school age children, it is virtually guaranteed that they are going to bring home some horrible bug that will barely touch […]

Shuttle Storage

A pair of Banyek shuttles arrived today! Woot! So there are only two more left at large. Or three. I’ve decided I need a case or something for the storage of my shuttles and tatting supplies. I’m a huge fan of organization in my fiber arts room, although you wouldn’t know it to look at […]

It Begins

The tool collecting, that is. I counted up my current batch of tatting shuttles today, and there are eight at present, with four others that have not yet arrived. So that really means twelve.

Still Playing…

I’m still playing around with tatting…and I’m having fun! I finished a tiny needle tatted piece the other night. Well, two of them, actually, because Thing 2 snagged the first one, which meant that nothing would do but that I make another one for Thing 1. Lol. My Bryony has pocketed every single piece I’ve […]

Thready or Not

I finally did a sample piece on each of the new threads, the Lizbeth and the Valdani, needle tatting for both samples. The Lizbeth is driving me insane. It’s like tatting with elastic. It coils around itself very tightly and very quickly. You can pull the coils straight, but the second you let go in […]

Second Time’s a Charm

That’s not actually how it happened, just “second” sounded better as a title than “seventh”, which is a lot closer to the mark! I did not go down in needle size. One look at the eyes of the other needles convinced me that, yes, I had been using the right one in the first place. The […]
