A little of this and that

This is from Becky Dempsey book Bugs and Beasts .I did the Rabbit and squirrel in size 20 Lizabeth thread.
The heart is Linda S. Davies heart. Lizabeth thread size 20. Butterfly's are by Marlene Lewis one is Alix's butterfly and the other one is Donna's butterfly.

This is the Chinese Dragon by Ann Bruvold not sure what thread I used but it was size 20.

All of these butterfly's are by Mary Maynard.

This is Beatrice from Iris Niebach book Tatted Doilies. Lizabeth thread size 20.
Now that fall is here I am hoping to be able to post more often. I have the bedroom painted, the out side read for winter. Now it is time to start cleaning the house again
I need to shampoo the carpet. then take a break.
I also went the to VA mt DH had a doctor's appoment. I took my tatting with me and someone asked what I was doing. One of the other guys that was there told them right off. He said his mother, grandmother and great grandmother use to tat. Said his great grand mother could tat with her eyes closed. He also said he had one of her tatting shuttles. The other person who asked is going to try and learn to tat. Great part her husband said he was also going to try.
Will not bore you any longer. Have a great fall.


  1. WoW! That is a lot of tatting to share. You have been busy!

  2. Thanks. I like to stay up late on the weekends and tat very late at night. I half to keep busy.

  3. Oh, I recognize Linda S. Davie's heart! She's so sweet to share her patterns. You did a nice job of it, too! You've been very busy tatting I can see. That's a lot of tatting photos in one blog post! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks TattingChic. I don't have a lot of time to post so I try and get it all donw at one time. I also love Linda S. Davie's patterns. I am just gled there are a lot of tatters who shear there patterns.
    For some reason every time I try and bring up your site Internet Explorer quits responding. Not sure why have a couple of other that also do it.

  5. Hi Sharon,
    I am just stopping by again to thank you for your comments on my blog. You always have such nice things to say!

    Happy day to you!

  6. Hi there, Sharon! I am also glad that there are a lot of designers who share their patterns!

    You know, I also had a lot of problems with explorer and many Blogger blogs. Once switched to Firefox (which is a free browser...just google "Firefox" and you'll find their download site easily) it is like night and day! No more problems! My computer never crashes anymore and rarely freezes! It's totally awesome! If you are open to trying Firefox it is totally worth the few minutes of effort to download it for FREE!
