Tatting Tea Tuesday

So, I've seen a lot of other tatters blogging about "Tatting Tea Tuesday." Today was a particularly good day for tea, as it has officially turned blustery and cold. So I figured I'd join in.


I started this motif while waiting in the doctor's office this afternoon. It's mostly rounds of chains, as I've become fascinated with the bridge stitch/split chain. I think this technique is fun, but rarely have had a chance to use it since I learned it years ago. I think I'll do a couple of different motifs in patterns like this as Christmas ornaments.

Of course, it's tatted in the new Lizbeth thread, size 20, that I am absolutely in love with. It's got such a nice sheen to it, with lovely colors and outstanding quality. It's by far one of my favorite threads. :)



  1. How on Earth did I miss this post the first time around?!? I'm so sorry I didn't see it sooner.

    Thank you for joining in the Tatting Tea Tuesday fun! With your precious new baby, I don't expect you will have much time for anything except catching up on much needed sleep!

    But I would be happy to help keep you inspired during these joyous (if sleep-deprived) early months.

    Give that darling child an extra snuggle for me.

    Happy tatting in 2010!

  2. Yeah, he's definitely kept me away from my shuttles over the past few months. But it's worth it. I'll get back to tatting soon, and probably be full of more new ideas than my head can stand!
