More new tatting

I was working on another short edging that didn’t come out quite like I wanted.

Edging?  Yes, it was supposed to be an edging but kept curving, so I let it.  I thought it looked a little hollow so added a little something to the middle.  It came out pretty nice, but obviously not an edging.  This one is made with Lizbeth #163 ‘Blue Ice’ in size 40.  Originally I was working in Lizbeth #115 ‘Springtime’ in size 20. I made the one in ‘Blue Ice’ to verify stitch count and shuttle use so I could write out the pattern.  If you’re interested in it check out the Patterns tab. (I recommend starting with the center then working on the outside ☺)
I haven’t finished the project with the Hanging Basket Edging yet, as this edging – the one that didn’t happen – is  going to go with it.  I wanted to make sure the two edgings worked together before I got too far in attaching them.  Which means I’m not done yet.  I have some thoughts on where I went ‘wrong’ and will be trying again.
I’m trying out the Pages option here in Blogger, which is where I moved the links to my patterns.  The list was getting kind of long *grin* which isn’t a bad thing, but I thought maybe this would work better.

  1. How funny- I tatted an edging this week, too, that, well, didn't turn out like I'd planned. Great minds think alike, they say, and who am I to argue? lol

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely pattern. Your designs are so pretty. I'd appreciate permission to use and have access to the pattern for the edging you showed in your Nov. 15,2011 posting.

    In the meantime, good luck with the continuation of your hanging basket edging. It's a winner!

  3. Not me, Suztats, not me! LOL

    Randi, you have my permission to use the pattern. I'll try and get it up on the pattern page soon. Just keep checking back. I'm glad you like my creations:))

  4. Hi Wanda! I popped over to say thank you for the lovely comments you left on my blog! I love your work. I'm completely new to tatting, and would love to try my hand at it! Thanks for inspiring! Tania ♥
