The Full Monty

Yesterday, I finished a shortened bookmark and did it via needle tatting. Today, I finally, finally, finally finished the full Monty, the whole pattern, via shuttle tatting, with no mistakes, everything attached where it’s supposed to be, using the Lizbeth #10 thread that drove me crazy. 106 more words

I Did It!!!

It’s not exactly what I planned on, but I did finally finish the bookmark! There were some changes made. One change was that I needle tatted it rather than shuttle, which means I managed to make the entire bookmark in under an hour, and that’s awesome. 558 more words

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. 264 more words

And Not So Pretty Things

I’m not posting a picture of my first needle tatting experiment. It’s hideous. I don’t know if I was using the wrong sized needle or what, but the stitches were very loose. 541 more words
