Tatted Wall Grouping Finished

Tatted motifs wall grouping

Here’s my collection of beginner-level tatted motifs that I’ve grouped together as wall decor.

It adds interest to a formerly boring blank spot.  🙂

Planning the Trip Home

Next week it looks like it will warm up enough for us to head home to Florida to visit family.  It’s about time!  I have a bad case of cabin fever!

I’m working on a very pretty (simple) spring flower tatted motif that I hope to finish tonight.  I’ll be framing it as part of a wall decor arrangement.  Will post a photo when it’s done.  🙂

Flower Garden Tatted Bookmark

Down the Garden Path tatted bookmark.

I finally finished the Down the Garden Path tatted bookmark last night — except for working in the ends.

I wanted the greenery to look very lacy and ferny, so I made giant picots.  I like it–but the size of the picots may have made it look more weedy than ferny!  🙂

I’ll work in the ends this evening.

The pattern is from the book Tatting Treats Three.  I found it online several places, but since I love Handy Hands Tatting, here is a link to it at that site.

The pattern also includes a diagram for a corner, so you can use it as a flowery edging if you prefer.

I’m planning to get one of those nice matted picture frames from Hobby Lobby that has all the different sized openings for pictures in it and put several small, brightly colored tatted pieces in it for wall decor.  This is one of the items that I plan to include in it.
