Some Tatting and a Giveaway


This is a doily I just finished making using Lady Shuttlemakers Silk Hand Dyed Thread size 60 colour Middle Earth. The pattern is just one I made up as I went along.
Below is a picture of the doily that I am giving away along with 50 yards of Middle Earth HDT, size 60. All you have to do to be entered is to leave a comment with your name. Good luck. Deadline is thursday noon.

Due to the overwhelming response to my giveaway I have decided to change it a little to give more people a chance to win. There will now be 3 prizes.
1. The green doily
2. 50 yard skein of Middle Earth HDT size 60 by Lady Shuttlemaker
3. A small skein of Peace HDT size 80 by Yarnplayer

So very lovely. I'm just teaching myself needle tatting and can't imagine completing a work that large YET! I've also got a long way to go to get the tension as consistent. Congratulations on what is obviously a labor of love. - Kerry

Beautiful tatting!!!

Sue said...

Your work is lovely. As a relatively new tatter I am always inspired by the generosity of other tatters, sharing their ideas, photos of their work, etc. Your blog is wonderful too, and have had fun looking around. The quotations are thought provoking and uplifting. Thank you.

Annette C. Agnello said...

This is a beautiful doily. I am curious how does silk thread work in tatting? It is very difficult to embroidery with. Even though it would stand to reason it would be better because it would not be as bad because there would be less abrasion. I would love to have your beautiful piece enter me in please.

SallyBiggers said...

Beautifully done doilies! Creative use of not only the thread and their colors but also of the patterns themselves! The airy-ness of the first one is quite appealing but I love the clover motifs!

I'll jump in for a chance at the thread and doily, too!

Best!
