I participated in Jane Eborall's TIAS 2012 that started in January (has it been that long ago?). I had just bought this boysenberry Lizbeth Size 20 thread and was burning to try it out. If I had known that we were tatting a goat I would have chosen a more goat-like color. I love the way Jane keeps the excitement going!
My mom has received the Mother's Day card and gift I had enclosed. She told me in an e-mail that she was very happy with both. The pattern for the bracelet can be found in the June 2012 Bead and Button Magazine. It is called Tila token and was designed by Marcia Balonis. You can see the Tila beads in the center. They are two hole, square beads which look like little tiles. The pattern uses both ladder and herringbone stitches. A really lovely pattern.
Happy Mother's Day!
I learned to needle tat in November 2003 and tatted on my own until I met up with the Oklahoma Shuttle Bugs in Kingfisher, OK in July 2004. Gina Butler taught me to shuttle tat and I haven't been able to stop since. Once I joined the Lace Guild of Oklahoma I started learning bobbin lace and Romanian Point Lace. With the help of a couple of beading magazine subscriptions I am teaching myself various beading stitches.
