Off to a new challenge

Greetings to you all!

Recently, tatting has been a bit tangential...meaning, I started the artisan phase of the T.A.T. program and have now drifted to a different 'major' project. I completed all 18 of the picot exercises and started the Self Closing Mock Ring (SCMR) piece. I accomplished the learning, worked through the project and quickly realized it will take a few tries to perfect the overall desired look. Ergo, I got bored and am now working on another project.

So, here is the beginning....

A fun quiz, can you tell me by looking at this, what it is I'm working on?... I think the pattern is out there and frequently tatted. So, who's pattern is it?

I'll keep posting pics of my progression and will chat ya'll up from time to time.

I hope you are all well and enjoying the approach of spring.

  1. John... I love your style... "rings only". I have become fascinated with them. For me, it has to do with the time period of these technique. I have volunteered to do "period" tatting at our local Historic Travelers Rest, a B&B from early 1800's. The only style of tatting back then were rings only for "chains" have yet to be invented! I enjoy looking at your work for inspiration!
    You do beautiful work!
