I am still tatting

Yes, I am still tatting....Browsing the internet I recently have found Renulek's blog about tatting. She is amazing; I like her tatted pieces very much. She made some online doily challenge/tutorial, whatever you call this... So here is my (very imperfect) central motif of that adorable doily.

Here is another motif from Renulek's blog (completely wrong, I know...)

And below you can see the chocker (ok, the part of the choker) from Tatting Patterns by Lyn Morton

Easter -Sweet Violets

Easter is quickly approaching, spring is coming timidly and everywhere there are beautiful little flowers. I love violets, forget-me-nots, lilies of the valley. All of them appear on the beautiful Victorian cards. Below I present some Easter postcards with sweet violets.

Progress in tatting and new trinket box

With all my love to the past times, the beauty of Victorian era, decorations of our great-grandmothers – I think tatting and my decoupage pieces compose together very well.

I must confess that the tatting takes me a lot of time. A lot of patience too. But I love effects, so here I present my tatting progress:

I do not know who is the author of this pattern. I found this somewhere on the internet, if you know the author, please let me know.

This gorgeous trinket box I decorated using decoupage technique and finished with acrylic wax. This gives a  feeling and apperance of a wax varnish and is a water and heat resistant.

Tatting - next step

As I said in my previous post, I am totally hooked in tatting. It is always nice to learn something new, especially something really pretty…of course I have 1000000000000 questions, but I enjoy learning to tat –so this is the most important, isn’t it?

Below I present few my newest tatted “motives”

Can I ask you a favour? I need a few simple patterns for beginners (at this moment I can use only one shuttle…). I will be grateful for some links.

 I am totally in love with tatting. Recently I discovered gorgeous tatting jewellery made by TataniaRosa. Last week I visited  Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts show in Glasgow  and I met there lovely ladies from THE RING OF TATTERS. One of them tried to show me how to tat, but it was totally magic for me…but I bought a starter kit from her and…. Here it is, my very first basic tatting lace I made:

Trinket box with Sweet Violets

Today I am going to show you my new lilac trinket box .It was made from a paper-mache oval box. I painted it with lilac acrylic paint and then decorated with my favourite motif -Sweet Violets. I covered the box with few layers of glass glaze and decorated with golden pearl drops.
