Sherry’s Hope

Welcome to Tatting Teas Tuesday! Sit back and have a nice cup of tea….

What? It’s not Tuesday? Are you sure? You mean I missed it? Oh, man!

I had a lot of things going on yesterday. I actually did start this post yesterday but was never able to get back to it. So I missed TTT! I hope every one took a few minutes for themselves with a little tea and tatting even if I wasn’t able to.

I did finally get a little tatting done this week. Sherry Pence shared her “Hope” butterfly pattern with the world and I actually made one. It’s such a wonderful butterfly! I was going to make this is shades of blue, but this brown and gold were already on shuttles. Both are Lizbeth size 20. I think it came out nicely, though I know I’d like it better in blue. I’m counting this as number six in my second 25 Motif Challenge.

I would like to thank Sherry very much for this wonderful pattern. It didn’t take very long and it came out looking wonderful. I know that I’ll be making more of these cute little flutterbys. I can just see this on a card with a few flowers.

I’m hoping to not miss Tatting Tea Tuesday next week. And maybe I’ll get a little more tatting done, too!

  1. Your Hope flutter turned out beautifully! I have to wonder if this one would work on a clip, like the lovely one you made for me? It is my fave-o-rite pattern marker!

    As always, your posts are pure pleasure to read. Thanks for sharing your tatting and thoughts this past Tatting Tea Tuesday!

  2. Sherry is so nice to share this pattern, isn't she Cindy? And split rings get better with practice I hear. Maybe you should make a few more?

    I hadn't thought of that, Isdihara. But I bet it would look wonderful on a barrette. I might just have to try that.

    Thanks, Sarah. Good luck on the split rings. There are several tutorials online that show how they're done that you might check out.

    Thanks, Typs. The result is certainly worth the effort, don't you think?
