Time for Some Tatting

Yep, it's that time of year again.  My mom, the mad tatter, is busy getting ready for her holiday boutiques.  She has one this weekend and one in December.  I'm always tasked with helping prepare her tatted goodies which she will sell at the boutique to her admirers that come from far and wide to see her!

I've been busy making pincushions:



And putting together what I call "tatted tartlets" (smaller pincushions):


And a few pendants with tatted medallions:


The pictures are dark; photography is not one of my strong suits!  You now understand why there hasn't been much stitching in my part of the world!

Hi Cathy,
I arrived on your page via a foreign blog that I just discovered.
Love the tatting you've done (something I've also tried but should dig deeper into it :-)
Kind greetings,
Ann from Belgium

Your Mom's work is beautiful Cathy. She always does the most amazing pieces. Your finishes show them off so well. I have seen tatting done and so admire your mom's talent.

Oh those are just gorgeous!!! I have always wanted to learn tatting, but for some reason it scared me. But your pincushions - just drop dead gorgeous, so I might actually have to try it out!!

they are beautiful. I got a shuttle years ago but never learned. I crochet and knit but for some reason havent mastered this art yet even with all the internet videos etc. Maybe one day :)
