Gift for Regina, Tatting Meeting and Motif No. 6/25

Last Wed was Regina's last day with our company. Here's my tatted gift for her: Dimpled Cross, pattern of Joy Botchlet found in her book Tatting Dimpled Rings.

And on Fri, we had dinner with Sheila Dutton (my tatting teacher), Julie and Agnes. Sheila brought and showed us plastic shuttles and handsewn silk flowers from Taiwan. Also, there were beautiful handwoven cords. They were eye-openers for us. A pity we forgot to take any photo of our meeting. Anyway, my girls, Joey and Kristine, were simply delighted with Julie's gifts.

And finally I managed to finish the 1st of my animals. I'm not too satisified with it especially the head, and I took real long with this. This will be Motif No. 6/25, Barney, tatted with Flora 20 threads. Why Barney ? Well, it's Joey's favourite.

The cross is beautiful! I'm not familiar with that book; I guess I'd better check it out! The children are adorable, and Barney is really cute!

Love the dimpled rings. I don't have that book, but a lady at my lace guild taught how to make them to make shamrocks. Very pretty. Cute kids!

First, adorable children with cute smiles. Your cross is lovely. Can the cross or your flowers (#4) be needled tatted?

Thanks for all the comments on the children. They are adorable when they are not fighting!

As for Kathy's question, although I can needle-tat simple motifs, I'm not an expert with the needle, I thought all patterns can be tatted using either shuttle or needle. But, I am sorry to disappoint that I haven't have the time to write out all the patterns yet, though I have just attempted to write the pattern for the coming motif #7/25 Lucky Sequin Clover. Watch out for the next blog entry!

Your tatting is wonderful and I really like the last two bookmarks that you have made and I bet your children just love Barney.

I've never seen this cross before, it is very unique! Your girls are so cute!

You did a fantastic job on Barney! My daughter, Katrina, who is 16 now, just loved Barney when she was little. It was her favorite show. A few years ago, my son asked me to tat him something, so I surprised him with a tatted SpongeBob & Gary. He liked it. I'll have to put it on my blog sometime.

Hi Carol, yes, I remembered your tatted SpongeBob which was very real-like. You did such a good job on it. That partly inspired me to try doing the Barney.

My girl shouted out Barney when she saw it, she loves Barney, must-see DVDs.

You did a great job. Very nice FOs.
