Photos from the 17th Annual Shuttlebirds Tatting Guild Workshop – Angels Among Us – 2013.

There were over 500 photos taken at this year’s workshop (click on the above link to see the rest). Have fun looking at everything that went on. I will edit in the photographer’s information once I get it.

Over the next week I will be adding in the photos from previous years as well.

Shuttlebirds Spotlight – Michele – Tatted Handkerchief Edging

Tatted by Michele Merrill. Pattern: Hankie Edge from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker.

Tatted by Michele Merrill.
Pattern: Hankie Edge from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker.

Michele used the pattern Hankie Edge from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker. She improvised and tatted directly onto the hankie instead of sewing it on as directed.  She used Lizabeth Springtime in size 20.

This was her first handkerchief project. Her finished piece came out lovely!

This is the first post in what I hope will become a regular feature highlighting the tatted works of various Shuttlebirds Tatting Guild members.

Happy tatting!

Weekly Challenge #10

This week’s pattern was my first accidental variation while following a pattern.  Accidents can be very pretty things. You are getting one of my patterns this week for a couple of reasons. One is that I have company in town (my awesome Mum-in-law and my Aussie grandmother, who is currently visiting the states) – so I’m a bit pressed for tatting time. Secondly, today is a day that I remember my forever 13 brother – I love and miss him lots. So hearts for everyone. Family is wonderful and I do hope that everyone is able to take some time to enjoy their family and friends.
