Tatting Tea Tuesday

So...this is becoming a habit too ~ one to empty a shuttle and one for the dye pot! The little round teapot is from Martha's book too and it's the first time I tatted that one. I thought I had enough thread but it turns out it only tatted half the pot. I had to add in another thread and of a different color! I missed the half moon ring for the handle as a result and went back and tatted a chain handle instead. I'm not crazy about folded rings although it does make it possible to tat this one in one pass. It was a clever way to add the lid too. It's quite tiny, probably the size of a dime.

I'm off to bed early tonight. For real this time. I'll leave you with a photo I took last year that feels very Autumnish.


  1. The tiny one with two colours turned out really nicely. I have Martha's teapot book but I must admit I have only tatted one tiny teapot pattern. I should take it out and try more patterns.

  2. Love the two tone pink teapot they are both cute!

  3. Oh, you do seem to have the dye pot on the brain...

    I am curious to see what the final resulting colours of all these little tatted motifs will be.

    Folded rings... hmmm... have I done this? Was there a folded ring in Sherry's treble clef, I wonder?
    Fox : )

  4. They both look very pretty.
