You knew I had to do this, didn't you? Just ONE! It only took about an hour and I emptied a shuttle. That's why it ended up being two colors. I barely made it through the center part when I ran out of thread so I decided to give it a contrasting final round. I think it's sooooo cute!

Monkeys are done and on their way!

Did you know Ruth Perry has created a new location for the tatting calendar? I have a link in my sidebar and you can find it HERE. There are three entries so far.

And did you know The Shuttle Shop is open again? You can find them HERE. I've started a section in the sidebar for links to sources for tatting supplies. I'll add them as I come across them. I don't have time to look them all up right now.

I missed a lot of blog entries while I was so busy. That's a first for me. I usually keep up. I'm not sure if it's because I'm so busy or if there are just getting to be so many tatting blogs that it's unreasonable to expect to keep up with all of them. What a lovely dilemma!

Just now glancing again through my most recent I.O.L.I. Bulletin, I see Marilee Rockley,Yarnplayer, is featured. I was hoping to find her book amongst the vendors on Lace Day but I didn't see it and I forgot to ask. Actually, I think Zig-Zag Corner had it when I was there last but I'd already spent $$ on thread so I'll just get it when I go to guild next time.

In the meantime, while looking for some other things today, I've come across about three UFO's! They will have to wait. I'm almost finished with the crochet part of the crochet project and just need to write it up...tomorrow. Then back to tatting!

  5. This teapot has a particularly charming spout. Very cute, and it is most appealing in two colors. I might have to tat it next.

  8. The teapot does look extra cute with the contrasting color. Looks like the pot is full of "green tea", LOL.
    Thanks for mentioning "The Bulletin" article :-) BTW, the "Boutique Tatting" book is currently available only from my blog or Etsy shop.

  13. My copy of Martha Ess' "teapot" pattern book just arrived; and, I thought I might do the one that you tatted so nicely. I'll have to learn some new techniques for some of the patterns...I collect t-pots, so this is special for a tea-drinking tatter! LOL Bev

    Loved your choice of colors ~
