A quiet stitching blog


I haven't been stitching very often; tho I do have a couple tabletoppers going this Winter.

And what a winter we are enduring. I know there are those of you who enjoy snow - I'm not one of those people. Give me a Spring or Fall day --- and I'm happiest!

I've been learning & practicing tatting skills.
I am still a beginner; however, have been able to gradually use finer fibers.
I started with crochet cotton size 3 & a large tatting shuttle.
Now, I'm comfortable with crochet cotton size 10 & even 20 --- hope to be able to learn more skills with reverse work.
Next, I have a heart pattern (& bookmark with similar technique) - I've given it some practice & hope to finish one soon.

That is beautiful work. Congratulations on mastering tatting. I have always admired it and how dainty it is done!

Your tatting looks wonderful. I've always been intrigued by tatting. It looks so hard, but then again, I've never looked at a set of directions, just drooled over finished pieces. You did a great job!

Lovely tatting! I haven't done any now for nearly 15 years. I should probably give it a go again.

I don't tate, but I have crocheted with thin thread, and you do have you get use to the feel. I love tating and someday would love someone to show me. I'm not good with instructions or figuring it out myself. Once I have the principles I could figure out a pattern. Very nice work.
